Eat Your Veggies


I am so proud of myself! For the longest time, it has been my goal to try to eat more vegetables. It was really hard for me at first because I really don't like many vegetables. So I would choke down broccoli a few times a week or maybe have a sweet potato every now and then, but now I've been consistently getting 3-4 veggies a DAY! That's coming from someone who ate veggies maybe once or twice a WEEK.

I have found that it's a lot easier than I thought, and I'm actually starting to like vegetables! I never though that would happen! I've been having a romaine lettuce salad every evening with my dinner, then I'll also have some steamed broccoli or cauliflower with that. I usually have a tomato or 1/2 a tomato every day and also baby carrots. I have a sweet potato probably twice a week. I'm so glad to finally be eating more veggies-I just feel so healthy eating them!

I think what really helped was cutting back on the grains, because I had to have something to replace them with, otherwise I would be so hungry all the time! So I have my Ezekiel bread usually in the morning, then either Kashi cereal, oats or a whole wheat tortilla for my post workout meal, then it's just protein and veggies the rest of the day.

I know that I need to work on getting more of a variety with vegetables, but for now, I am satisfied with just getting any!

Most people need to be eating more vegetables. I have so many clients who tell me they don't eat any fruits or veggies!! If you aren't eating produce at all, then I'm sure you are eating WAY too many processed foods and grains. If I can eat veggies, anyone can!
