From Supersize to Superfoods

To super STUD!From Supersize to Superfoods 1Yep, that’s my man. This guy was eating burgers and fries for dinner, and using tobacco products three times a day when I met him over five years ago.

Now he’s growing his own produce.From Supersize to Superfoods 2From Supersize to Superfoods 3From Supersize to Superfoods 4And eating one of these every morning.From Supersize to Superfoods 5

Yep, that’s right, a smoothie with 1 banana, 1 cup of nutrient-packed spinach, 1/2 cup of antioxidant-packed pumpkin puree, and 1/4 cup cancer and disease-fighting blueberries. Missing from this picture is the unsweetened chocolate Almond Breeze that I add to the smoothie. It’s fortified with vitamin D, which is incredibly important for all of us now that we aren’t getting as much sun.

Who says you can’t change a man? I sure did. I think his dad’s stroke at age 60 may have also played a role. Not to mention the fact that Nick is actually one of the smartest people I know (ugh, I hate to admit that he’s probably smarter than me in many respects). And yes, he is also tobacco-free these days, and hopefully forever.

I even got him to change his mind about salmon…..From Supersize to Superfoods 6Ok, I’m lying, he wouldn’t eat this if I told him it was his last meal, ever. Not even with a nice layer of blueberry preserves on top.

Maybe because it looks like this when I take it out of the oven.From Supersize to Superfoods 7What are those? Boils? No, they are just globules of fat oozing out of the salmon. Don’t scrape it off, it’s good fat…right?! And good salmon. He’s missing out. But hey, at least I convinced him to take a fish oil pill every day.

What a stud.From Supersize to Superfoods 8
