Red Roses, Red Radishes

Posted on 10/28/2008

My husband Kelly loves the little romantic touches.  For example, sometimes he’ll go to the store and buy a bunch of really nice red radishes.  He cleans them and tells me: “That’s instead of red roses.”  He knows how much I love good red radishes.

The other day my daughter Paula received a phone call from a Renal Dietician, who is also a Certified Diabetic Educator.  The caller said that many of her clients are doing well on Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating and that she was looking for a meal plan that would help a dialysis patient.

Paula spoke to her for quite a while, going back and forth with questions and answers, until she concluded that our meals plan would be very helpful.  She told Paula she was calling her dialysis patient and would okay our program.

Paula and my daughter-in-law Terri tell me that many of our new home delivery customers are heading South for the winter.  Our “healthy eating snowbirds” have been picking up their meals from local distributors in the North since Spring.  But during the winter months, they move to Florida, Arizona, or Southern California, and receive their meals via our home delivery program.  

They love knowing they can stay on Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating all year.  Typically, our snowbirds are retired seniors who appreciate the convenience, sodium restriction, and low cholesterol of our meals.

Here’s another report from Pat, whose family has been on Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating for four weeks now.  “Roger has lost 33 pounds so far.  I have lost 12.  Keri (eating the meals part-time) has lost 7.  A couple of weekends ago, Roger and I went to Starved Rock for the weekend.  We brought our Seattle Sutton’s meals and ate in our room for the whole weekend!  We are serious about this.  Thought you might want to know.”

Thanks, Pat.  Kelly and I enjoy Starved Rock.  It’s very unusual to have such high bluffs in the middle of a prairie state.  I’m so glad you are benefiting from Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating.  After all, isn’t that what it’s all about?

More about our tuna sandwich.  We hear so many good comments about it.  Sometimes people who are not yet accustomed to healthy eating and crave some of their old habits—like high sodium taste—think some of our meals are bland.  Later, when people in this category have adjusted to healthy eating, their taste buds respond most gratefully to our meals.   Most people love our meals from the first bite.  It’s really quite a delight to eat well-planned and well-prepared healthy meals.

One reader last week commented that she would prefer solid food to juice.  Okay, we like to listen, but here’s the point.  The juice we serve is enjoyed by almost all of our customers, and it is certainly healthy.  Please remember that we are working hard to please thousands of customers.

Here’s something I love to do: I place my breakfast juice in the freezer.  Later the same day, I throw it in my blender with my “allotted milk calories.”  But instead of milk, I use a one hundred calorie yogurt (though skim or soy milk would also work).  Blending my yogurt with my juice gives me a healthy smoothie for a refreshing afternoon snack, which keeps you perfectly on the Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating plan.  I especially enjoy this with our orange or pineapple juice.

Seattle Sutton, BSN, RN

She made healthy eating her mission in life long before anyone else did, in hopes of helping her own obese father. A registered nurse by training and entrepreneur at heart, she lives, eats and breathes everything about healthy eating and helping to improve people’s eating habits and overall health. She enjoys never having to bother with grocery shopping, cooking and counting calories. Her favorite SSHE meal, although it’s hard to pick just one, is the Potato Gnocchi with Basil Pesto Sauce.
