Speaking of vegetables, I am currently two hours into the French Women Don't Get Fat 2-day "miracle soup", um, diet.
I'm not a dieter - I've never, in my entire life, been on one, though I did give up pizza for Lent one year in college, resulting in an overall weight loss of approximately 5-10 pounds. Seriously. But this is only two days, and basically just involves eating a lot of leeks and drinking leek broth. I like leeks, so I thought it couldn't hurt to give it a try.
All I'm really hoping is that I feel a little healthier and lighter afterwards. Sort of like a personal spring cleaning, I guess. I will, obviously, report back on the results.
