Sounds crazy? Who would eat broccoli for desert anyway? Well, I’m not advocating that you do that I just want to share a story.

One day a coworker was telling me about her daughter who spent the day with another relative acting as babysitter. When my coworker asked her daughter what she did all day and if she had fun the little girl replied:

“I had a great time. We went to the movies and we ate candy. Then we went out and had ice cream and cake and more candy. I had so many sweets I should have broccoli for desert!”

Clever girl. So my question to you is what have you been eating? Have you had so much sugar that you should have broccoli for desert?

Many of us drink our calories too and don’t realize it. Sugar can be a real problem and is hidden in many of the foods we eat everyday like bread or all over the McDonald’s menu.

Maybe sugar’s not your vice but would a lone piece of broccoli or anything naturally green be out of place in what you ate today?

Anyone could tell you to change your diet but you will never change your diet if you never look at your diet in the first place.
