Veggie Bonus for FEF

Saturday, May 07, 2011

Well, its funny that this was the bonus this week because I have been experimenting with substituting regular meals for veggie ones to add variety. I get in food ruts. I figure out its ok to eat X and then I fix X all the time for that meal. It gets old fast. So last Sunday we ate out after church. We went to a local chineese restaurant and I ordered steamed rice, instead of fried rice and something called a "veggie delight" which turned out to be brocolli, green peppers, red peppers, scallions, onions and mushrooms in a clear sauce. No meat. It was good. I was still hungry when we left, but being hungry is part of it. At least I knew I had made a good choice.

I have also discovered Subway's Veggie sub on honey wheat with vinegar and oil, which I had for lunch on Thursday. I really like it and I don't feel deprived after I am done eating. Plus, it really is pretty good lol!

    I adore the veggie subs at Subway! I am very interested in learning more about this Flexitarian (sp?) lifestyle. I love meat, but am so ready for a change to less meat and more vegetables and grains. Good for you getting in more of the "healthy stuff"!

    Excellent on eating more veggies! However, I don't know if you need to walk away hungry. Getting used to smaller portions can take a while. Eating small portions more frequently can be an adjustment. however, it really does help. The other thing that I notice is that if I don't get enough protein, I don't feel as good and/or I feel hungry.

Eating lots more whole grains (more fiber is always good) and beans/nuts for the protein. You might want to give that a try.
