So, I’ve been trying really hard to hit my 7 fruits and veggies every day and get a point in the HBBC. I’m making it most days, but it’s taking a lot of attention to what I eat. For example, today I had an egg with veggies for breakfast, an apple for snack, homemade veggie beef soup for lunch with a couple of handfuls of arugula, an orange for an afternoon snack and dinner will include a salad and baked acorn squash. If it weren’t for arugula, I’m not sure I’d make it. I have a serious addiction to the stuff. I eat it in salads, sandwiches, wrapped inside sandwich meat, wrapped around cheese sticks… Heck, I frequently eat it by the handfuls by itself. Yeah, I know I’m weird.
So, how are you getting your veggies and fruit in? I don’t do smoothies, but I’d love to hear what’s working for others. Either answer in the comments or blog about it and leave me a comment so I can go check it out.*
I had another wonderful run today. Five miles at a nine minute average pace, which was quite impressive considering mile 2 was 9:19 due to running uphill into the wind. Only 85 more miles to go in December.
*If you are a new follower or commenter, welcome and I will be by to visit soon. It’s health care choice season here and I’ve been spending every free moment trying to figure out which plan is best for our family (not the one we have apparently), whether dental insurance makes financial sense (it does, thanks to Shoo’s cavity prone teeth, sigh), and how much to put into our HCSA. I’m almost done, so pretty soon I can be back to my regular reading and commenting, just in time to start stressing about who’s getting what for Christmas…
