i eat pretty healthy most of the time so when i sat down today to log my food, i was shocked. where, oh where, have my fruits and veggies gone?
i, of all people, know that everyone should get AT LEAST 5 fruits and veggies a day. even georgia knows that, as you can see from the picture of her eating her corn (don’t worry, it’s a Pegetable- not real corn).
my day has gone like this:
breakfast- whole grain toast with peanut butter (healthy but no fruit or veggie anywhere in sight)
snack- homemade chocolate chip cookie (no, not healthy, but quite good and hot out of the oven)
lunch- tuna with wheat thins and a handful of cherry tomatoes (check 1 for fruits and veggies)
snack- homemade energy bar (tiny square) and a nectarine (woo hoo, 2)
dinner- chicken breast with black beans and brown rice (can’t find the fruits or veggies here)
so, from a fat / carb / protein perspective, i did great today- protein at every meal and snack, as long as we pretend the cookie isn’t on the list, healthy whole grains, and a moderate amount of healthy fats (remember, we’re pretending the cookie didn’t exist). now from a fruits a veggies perspective, i was a huge fail!
what am i going to do about this? i’m challenging myself to at least 5 fruits and veggies a day. you in on the challenge? how do you do with your daily intake of fruits and veggies? tips on getting enough every day?
