Stay Slender Starter Kit Secret #5
I recently bought some fennel at Trader Joe's and have been having fun adding it to salads, sautes, snacks, etc. Fennel is good for digestion and is anticarcinogenic. So what does that have to do with staying slender?
Secret #5 is about how to eat more veggies. When you play more with your food and incorporate more vegetables than probably anything else - it's pretty difficult not to be slender.
I have been riding the subway a bunch this last week and it saddens me to watch kids being given sodas, McDonalds, and bags of processed foods at all times of day, instead of things that grow. Fennel is relatively cheap to buy (at Trader Joe's) and fun to snack on raw. So are plenty of veggies like sweet jicama or kolrabi. It's just that they have been trained to look away from veggies and go for the glamorous packaging instead.
Fennel marinated in olive oil, lemon and sea salt is delicious on its own or paired with your favorite fish/meat/seitan.
Try something new each week and get into healthier habits that will keep you energized, youthful and slender.
