Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness

what we don’t talk about

The smell coming from my kitchen is making me gag. This is not a good thing considering I’m cooking dinner. Can you take a guess what it is I’m cooking? Roasted stank-ass broccoli. Seriously. Why is this?

Weird  side effect of cooking/eating veggies

1. Broccoli and cauliflower smell like farts while cooking. The day after smell is more of a rotten foot smell.

2. Asparagus makes your pee stink. So gross. Worst part– it’s a lingering stench that is sure to bother the next in line.

3. Beets make both pee and poop beet red. I mentioned the other day that I ate beets and they turned my business red. What I didn’t mention was that two days later I was still peeing beet red. So much so that I had to call Len into the bathroom to see it. Yes, that was necessary.


I said, “Look (pointing at the red pee)– that’s from the beets”

He said,  “For real? Gross, flush that away.” with such disgust in his voice.

Lol. Very funny. I wonder how much I turn him off on a day-to-day basis.

What other weird things do vegetables do?

    Hmm…I don't know, actually. Raw vegetables make you more energized, though! 😀
