Fruits and Veggies

Monday, April 27, 2009

My diet and weight loss have gone very well since joining SparkPeople. I've lost 26 pounds, and only have about 6 to go. One thing I still need to work on is getting in my fruits and vegetables. I can usually get in 2 or 3 servings, but almost never 5. And if I don't make a point to eat fruits and vegetables, I'll get in 0 or 1 serving. Just one more goal I need to achieve. I've reached so many other goals, so I can certainly do this one too.

    I have the same goal...eating more fruits and veggies. I like fresh fruit..I buy a variety each week, not in big bags but individual fruits. it can be pricey but I buy what's on sale, small quantity and I eat all of it... no waste(usually)I also buy frozen birdseye or green giant single veggie servings... easy to pop in microwave. I also like to to add frozen veggies(stir-fry, etc) to those individual frozen meals...You must be doing something right. You are doing a great job...26lbs is fantastic weight loss for 5 months. emoticon emoticon

    I started having veggies and hummus for my snacks. The hummus adds protein and a lot of favor so it's not just a bag of carrots.

    Way to go, that's awesome! I had the same problem, until I decided to only pack fruit & veggie snacks in my lunch bag. Now in the mid-afternoon when I'd normally go "hunting" for chocolate, I eat fruit or carrots & celery w/ a little peanut butter.

Since you've done so well so far, I think you'll have no problems getting in those extra servings!
