The Nutrition Twins Skinny Cauliflower Mash

Having a hard time getting all your veggies? We’ve been there!

Sure, now we’re veggie-loving registered dietitians, but we weren’t always besties with our greens!  In fact, as picky kids, the second our mom turned her back when we were at the dinner table, we’d quickly scurry off with our salads in hand to our deck where our best friend Mary and her black lab Buddy, were anxiously waiting for any veggies we’d want to share.  So how, you may be wondering did those girls become veggie fiends?

It happened gradually for us in our high school years–after witnessing how energetic and healthy they made us feel, how they made our skin glow and how they played a part in weight control… and after experimenting and seeing how delicious they could be, the switch flipped and our love affair with veggies began—nowadays we seriously can’t get enough…

We are constantly trying to find easy ways to make getting delicious veggies easier.  That’s one of the main reasons we wrote our latest book The Nutrition Twins’ Veggie Cure and created recipes like our Kale Recharge Smoothie, our Smoked Paprika Zucchini Chips, and our Zucchini Parmesan Rounds.  And now this! We can’t wait to hear what ya think!
