What is Think Vegetables First and Why?

“THINK VEGETABLES FIRST” is something that I frequently say to myself as a not so subtle reminder that the more vegetables I eat, the better my health and weight will be.

Last year, I started repeating this phrase over and over again to both my husband and son to encourage them to develop and sustain healthy eating habits and literally THINK VEGETABLES FIRST.

When you look at your plate or meal plan, what vegetables are there?

What percentage of the plate are vegetables?

When we begin to THINK VEGETABLES FIRST, we, by default, consume healthier food and fewer calories.

So, after some brainstorming, I decided to challenge myself to create an eBook that would compile a collection of everyday, easy-to-cook vegetarian side dishes to help you all THINK VEGETABLES FIRST this Winter.

A collection of 12 recipes – 8 brand new recipes and 4 fan favorites!

All for just $4.99

    Congrats on the e-book! And I usually do think vegetables first. The produce section is the first thing in my grocery store, so I always select veggies first, then decide what the main course is going to be. If there even is a main course – sometimes it’s all veggies!

      There is nothing as satisfying as accomplishing something new that is challenging – it felt great. Thanks Aggie! :)

      Thank you Laura – I always try to have at least one “interesting” veggie dish as an option or I find we all become so bored!
