Today's salad was a spinach and lettuce salad with strawberries, mandarin oranges, feta and walnuts. I was full after I ate it, so I waited to make the rest of my lunch, which was a 2 egg veggie omelet with 2 cups of broccoli, cauliflower, chopped tomato & a tiny bit of grated cheese. I forgot to weigh it because the missionaries came to the door right then. But if I add in the apple and blueberries I had with breakfast, & the half banana snack, I know I've had at least 2 lbs of fruits and vegetables today. And I'll have more with dinner.
As always, dinner is my challenge. I have 6 other people to please. Nearly impossible! But I keep trying and every once in a while I get lucky. Tonight will be spaghetti, french bread, steamed vegetables, carrot sticks and salad. I'm thinking ice cream with strawberries on top for dessert. (I'll probably pass on the ice-cream and do a green smoothie.)
In some future post I think I'll take the time to weigh all my fruits and veggies in a day. It could be over 3 pounds. That sounds like a lot of produce!
Does anyone else eat this much produce or am I a freak of nature? Don't answer that. OK, do, but be kind.
