Chop Chop!

Ever since discovering the Vitamix, it's not very often that I get ridiculously excited about a kitchen appliance.

But then this happened:

The Chef'n VeggiChop.

I first saw it in the private Ultimate Weight Loss group on Facebook. One very awesome member of UWL, Debra from Long Island, actually took the time to make a demonstration video of how she uses this hand held chopper to make her VFB (Veggies for Breakfast). Debra makes a beautiful chopped salad with cruciferous vegetables--think red cabbage and cauliflower and other stuff, with some beans and hummus--and happily eats this every morning.

I was so inspired! I wanted to share Debra's video with you here on HGK, and Debra was so kind to send it to me, but I am such a tech dummy that I couldn't figure out how to get it up on the blog. So I prayed that there would be a few demo videos on YouTube to share with you today and we lucked out!

Here's how this simple machine works:

I'm so excited to add another variation to my VFB routine, a la Debbie's salads, but I might even be more excited about making my own salt free salsas quickly and easily. I haven't been able to find any salt free salsas in my area-either canned or the salsa fresca type, and I've got a few recipes that I am just itching to try.

So there you go. I guess I do need another kitchen appliance after all! (I might even get two, because this is one thing that's perfect for travel.)

Last Chance to Sign Up for Ultimate Weight Loss

At this point in the evolution of this blog, Healthy Girl's Kitchen, you might be asking yourself, "Why all this fuss over a plant based eating program? We all know exactly what to eat to lose weight, feel great, and reverse our diseases! That's not our problem.Our problem is that although we know exactly what to do, we don't always do it."

This fuss may seem really silly to many of you, but it's so not silly to me. Because even though I knew the rules (and yes, the rules vary slightly from doctor to doctor or author to author), it wasn't until I decided that enough was enough that I started to see success. I was going to find out exactly what Chef AJ had done to lose weight and come hell or high water I was going to do exactly what she had done. 

There's really no big mystery to the plan.

Ultimate Weight Loss FAQs

Good morning! I'm so excited about beginning another Ultimate Weight Loss Challenge with those of you that have already signed up or will be signing up for the program.

It's not that I don't know exactly what to eat to stay on track, I do. But I'm going to be honest, it takes daily attention on myself and my needs to stay on the path. That's why I like the feeling that I am in this with other people, that we are all there supporting each other and cheering each other on.

I also love knowing that if I have any questions, I know exactly who to turn to. The resources that Chef AJ and John Pierre tap into are the best doctors out there (IMHO), so I feel confident that the answers that I am getting are sound. As an example, I had a question about Omega 3 fatty acid supplementation. I turned to the group. I received immediate and excellent recommendations from AJ, JP and many of the members personal experiences. It was awesome!

I know that lots of you have many questions about the program, as I've been receiving them by e-mail! In an effort to answer as many of your questions as possible in one shot, here are a list of FAQs and answers about UWL. If you have any other question, please ask in the comments section below the post!

24 Hour Blog Giveaway! The Complete Ultimate Weight Loss Program and 21Day Challenge


I hope you guys are not sick of me talking about the success that I am having following Chef AJ and John Pierre's weight loss recommendations. Their program is solely responsible for me being able to shed 26 unwanted pounds over the course of the past eleven months. But even better than that is the freedom that I am experiencing as my brain heals from its refined carbohydrate overload.

I want to stand on the rooftops and shout out to the world, "If you are struggling with your weight and can't say no to food that you don't want to eat, please stop consuming refined carbohydrates!"

This blog is my rooftop.

And here I am shouting!

But it's not so simple, A sugar addict cannot usually just stop eating sugars and flours. A person needs a plan with a proven track record and a support system that is unwavering.

Ultimate Weight Loss all of that and I am a die hard fan.

I want to help people regain their health and their sanity while maintaining my own. If you have been driven insane by weight that you are unable to lose or an inability to stick to your chosen plan of action, than Ultimate Weight Loss just might be the program that you have been waiting for your whole life.
