Mark Bittman was on The Today Show awhile ago and he said something that I will never forget:
"No one's ever gotten fat from eating vegetables."
I have adopted this attitude as I fill my plate. Little bit of meat, little bit of bread, and heaps of veggies. Seconds on the main dish may come but first I make myself eat more vegetables. I will finish the green beans. I will snack off leftover salad. I will eat the carrots off my children's plates.
I love to eat but I hate being fat. And right now I'm really fat. So while I try to lose weight by cutting back sugar, non-water beverages, and starches I will eat all the asparagus and broccoli that I want. Thank you very much.
