Whole foods!

It's been a while since I entered a post... Lots to do, little time - all GAPSters understand this.

It was during one of those super-rushed dinner-making times that I decided to cut corners to the ultimate and just let my veggies cook in the simmering broth, WHOLE.  Carrots, zucchini and broccoli.  I simply did not have time for slicing or chopping.  All I did was peel the carrots, trim the bottom of the broccoli stem, and nothing to the zucchini (except washing).  Then I dropped them into the ever-present broth and pulled each out at perfect tenderness.  WOW!  Not only did they taste great, they LOOKED great!  The toddlers were much more interested than when I present them neatly (or not-so-neatly) cut up veggies.  We had FUN!  The carrots were handled like corn on the cob by little hands.  A crocodile mouth was cut into one end of the zucchini.  The broccoli was trees. 

And the broth got some extra vitamins, too.
