  • Getting Myself to Eat Vegetables

    March 6th, 2013
    food  [html]

    I have a strategy for getting myself to eat vegetables. I've been using it for about six months now, and it works well:

    • Put the food I want to eat on my plate.
    • Put raw vegetables on top.
    • Eat through vegetables to get to the food I want.
    Side effect: people who see my plate think I'm a very healthy eater. But sometimes they ask my "why is your salad steaming?"
