One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


I Took the Video Leap!

8 Comments 1207 views

I’ve been thinking about it for a long time and finally decided to give it a try. Check out my video on cutting butternut squash.  A few people emailed asked how I do it and to be honest it’s much easier to show then to write out.  So there ya go!

I don’t have an official food journal tonight.  I spent most of the evening toying with a new project idea and experimenting with brownie recipes.  So here is the super abbreviated version.

  • Morning Weigh in: 144
  • Turkey soup
  • Granola bar
  • Panera Lunch (soup, salad, whole wheat bead)
  • 2 Kashi cookies
  • Pork chop, Butternut Squash Fries
  • Steamed broccoli

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    The video was great! I have never been able…for the life of me…to cut a butternut squash without making a huge mess or wanting to throw it at the wall! I’ll have to try this today since I happen to have one lying around :-)

    I finally checked out your other blog and I have to say it looks really good! I love the design. I especially love all your lovely pictures of food. Excellent! You can be a food photographer for those recipe books or magazines!

    Thanks for the video. I will try your method next time I do butternut squash fries. The way I’ve been doing it, I end up with a sore hand from holding the knife. I also never realized you could pre-cut it. How long can you leave it in the fridge before cooking it?

    Thanks for the video! I have the worst time cutting any type of squash, so it was good to see a different technique.

    Thank you for posting this video. I have 3 butternuts in my kitchen and I was wondering how to work them into dinner. I too will be making squash fries with some cajun turkey burgers ;)
    p.s. it was great to finally put a voice to your blogs.

    I like the video a lot! So do my kids, who happened to be in the room as I watched it and they all ran over to see who was talking to me about butternut squash from the computer.
