An easy way to tell these twins apart? One loves cabbage. At least at four year old, that’s how Lyssie would tell people they could tell her apart from Tammy–because Lyssie loved cabbage. However, Tammy loved cabbage too. 🙂 We know what you’re thinking –either way, it’s pretty hard to look at twins and tell them apart by the one who loves cabbage. But the moral of the story here is that not much has changed regarding our cabbage love affair. 😉 If you ask our friends on any given day what we’re picking up at the supermarket, for sure one us will be putting a purple cabbage in her basket. We’ll probably be making our Colorful Detox Salad (and if we don’t have cabbage in our basket, no worries, we probably have some at home or we’ll probably be making these veggie extravaganzas- Kale Recharge Smoothie or Caramelized Cauliflower with Olive Oil and Lemon Juice
Needless to say, we were so proud when our rock star client Jeane sent us her newest creation that her whole family LOVED. She said it only took her 5 minutes–oh yeah! You rock Jeane! 🙂
