Sexy vegetables…

We’ve all had that snicker to ourselves, or out loud. Don’t act like you don’t know what I’m talking about. You know…that overly long zucchini, the perfectly round pair of cantaloupes, the shapely gourd, the navel oranges, the succulent strawberries, the ever-so-slight curve to the cucumber with it’s ribbed outer skin.

Whether you’ve shared your chuckle with someone else, or not, you do know what I’m talking about. It’s ok to admit it. I see it as God giving us a little humor in his creations.

This all goes back to enjoying the beauty all around you. Whether you see the perverse humor in something, or the stunning awe of nature around you…just take time to enjoy it. I promise, you’ll have quite a few chuckles along the road of nature.

The produce section should have a warning sign above it that reads…”Danger, curves ahead.”  *smiles*

It's a new day and a new food journey. I'll be using this blog as a motivational tool to keep my husband and I in check on eating "healthier for us" dishes. I hope you'll enjoy the ride with us! Also, don't judge us if we go off the rails once in a while, or if I just need to get some random non-food thoughts out there! Happy to have you here in my kitchen and our lives!


  1. Awww! I love it. Interestingly, I read an article once that said the foods that look like various parts of the anatomy are actually healthy to those parts. I’m not sure how much scientific basis there is to it, but that would be one more great Mystery of Creation that I could celebrate, which means more cooking and candles!
