Don’t knock it ’til you try it!

So, I’m doing this nutritional program, right? Our weekly meetings include cooking demos. I’ve learned some pretty cool things during those demos.

For example, using julienned zucchini in place of pasta. Sounds odd, I know, but it works somehow. Basically you just peel zucchini (one to two per person) and then julienne it (you can buy a tool at the grocery store to make that easier). Then you just replace pasta with those strips – no need to cook it.

But my favorite so far has been this recipe for lime pudding:

  • 2 avocados
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 TBS lime zest
  • 6 TBS lime juice (I used about 8 TBS)
  • Honey to taste
  1. Put all of that in a blender or food processor and whip it together until is smooth and creamy
  2. Pop in the fridge until chilled

I’ll be honest, when a bowl of this was set before me for the first time, I turned to the woman next to me and said, “I don’t think I can put that in my mouth.” But I did and was unsure for the first two seconds. Then the lime flavor hit and I was hooked. I know it sounds odd, and it is, but this tastes amazing. Hey, don’t knock it ’til you try it!

  • About Me

    My mother is an encyclopedia of useless information (sorry, ma, but it's true) - no one can beat her at Trivial Pursuit. As I age, I become more like dear old mom everyday. I routinely tell people about resources, recipes, tips, tricks, or websites I've heard about, tried, live by, etc. until one of my clients urged me to start a blog. So here it is! My perpetual ramblings. I hope you find them useful and amusing. If you don't, you can either keep it to yourself or leave me a well constructed critique.

    I'm a former massage therapist, a freelance journalist, and a web information architect and UX designer. I enjoy yoga, the Bar Method, camping, reading, gardening, and spending time with my friends and loved ones. I live in Colorado.
