Having fun with Chayote!

I took this photo with an iPhone mobile.
Obviously, it's an image of chayote strips
(sayote in Tagalog)
on top of saute'd garlic, onions and tomatoes.

I was cooking sayote stir-fried for dinner this one time.

I enjoy taking close-up images.
They look so surreal and crisp, 
don't you think?
(Just as crisp as every bite of this vegetable!)

What about chayote, though...

Chayote or sayote is shaped like a pear.
In the US, it's already referred to as the vegetable pear.

I enjoy chayote because of its crunchy texture.
It's fun to eat is all I'm saying.
This one's definitely low on calories too!
It contains 0 cholesterol and 0 saturated fats.
Simply put, it's a food for weight watchers.

You can add some shrimps into a chayote dish, 
And still maintain a low-calorie meal.
Just remember to detach the shrimp's head
To have a low-cholesterol dish, as well.

Add to add more flavor, add some of
Thailand's spicy condiments, why don't yah?!
