Did you know that January & February are the best months for broccoli?I just picked up some fresh broccoli from Whole Foods this week and decided to use my Sleekstor Veggiesteam (silicone steamer) to cook it. All I did was place the steamer inside a pot with about 1-2 inches of water then, wash the broccoli and trim off the stems and then place it on top of the steamer. Cook on med/high heat for about 10-15 minutes until the broccoli is tender. To speed up the process you can place the lid on your pot but allow a small vent/crack to let some steam out. I served my broccoli with a tiny amount of shredded cheddar cheese, sea salt and pepper. You can use this steamer to cook all your veggies: carrots, mushroom, zucchini, etc!
Hi! I'm Cari! I'm a fitness star turned Mom of 3 who lives in Houston, TX. Getting fit and healthy is a journey and one I understand well. After graduating from college I worked in a corporate setting for many years and gained a lot of weight and had an unhealthy lifestyle. Finally, after I had enough - I decided to regain my healthy lifestyle that I had in college by fitting in workouts and eating healthier. Eventually, I left my corporate job to become a full-time personal trainer and group fitness instructor. I also created Bombshell Bootcamp over 10 years ago and it has become one of Houston's top bootcamps! My passion then turned into greater opportunities to write workouts for national magazines, appear on tv doing workouts and speaking about healthy and fitness, making fitness DVD's and working with many celebrities. Fast forward a few years....and then I had my first baby! I'm now a Mom of 3 little ones and try to incorporate healthy living and exercise in our family's lives. Not only do I still blog about workouts and fitness, but I have shifted some to include family fitness, family travel, fashion, health/beauty and general lifestyle.
