Good morning! I wasn’t sure if I was going to make it through Monday…for some reason it was difficult to start this week off! Maybe it was because I knew many people had the day off from work/school and I didn’t? Or because it was raining when it was supposed to be warm & sunny? Or because I know there is so much going on this week? Okay, time to pull myself together
Because yesterday was so strange and I wasn’t ready to accept that it was Monday, I totally forgot to post the weekend post recaps! Oops. I hope you all are a little less frazzled then I am this week! In case you missed them, here were the posts from this weekend:
My Weekly Challenge: Eat More Fruits & Veggies
Lately I’ve been slacking in the fruit & veggie department. I haven’t had too much time to put meals together, so many breakfasts and lunches are grab & go.
As I mentioned yesterday, my garden exploded and I now have a million tomatoes in my kitchen.
In my How-To series, I’ve given my favorite tips for sneaking veggies in. While I don’t necessarily have time to make a smoothie (with spinach) every morning, I do plan on using my tips to bring veggies back into my life.
How will I do it?
- Fruit in the morning- I pretty much always add either strawberries or peaches to my breakfast, so I will continue to do that. Any piece of fruit counts!
- Fruit/veggies with lunch and dinner- I will eat some type of fruit or veggie with lunch and dinner.
- A salad a day- I’ve recently fallen in love with the simpleness of building salads, even though they are so delicious. Not to mention, I have about 2.5 million tomatoes to eat. I will be fitting a salad into my day, everyday. Note: I’ll be adding a salad to one of my meals, not replacing my meal with a salad.
- Try new fruits/veggies- When I lived in Hawaii I tried so many new fruits and vegetables, it was awesome. I think it’s really important to always try new foods, so I am going to search for new fruits and veggies that I haven’t tried before, or that I rarely eat.
