but my diet is just that way...

Friday, June 03, 2011

I am not going to sit here and lie and try to tell myself or anyone else for that matter, that I don't like junk food. I am not going to lie and say I don't like fried food. Guess what? I do. Big surprise there! I adore those things, and I adore pizza and all of that stuff that isn't good for me... blah blah blah.

As much as I adore those things, I adore fruits and veggies more! No lie! It is getting to the time of year where the heat is becoming oppressive, and honestly, when it is hot out, I don't feel much like eating a bunch of heavy garbage. Bring on the salads! Bring on the fresh fruit!

My diet is just naturally high in veggies and fruit. I am not one of those people who have to make it a goal to get at least 5 servings in a day, because I do that easily. Perhaps, I over eat on those things? Is that really possible? I think it may be, especially in the fruit category, but I just can't help myself! Watermelons are so juicy and yummy this time of year, that I can't resist!

I am sure eating a bowl of watermelon is a lot better than eating a pint of ice cream, no doubt there. Maybe I am eating too much fruit?

Today I had...

6 cups of watermelon
2 apricots
2 cups of cherries (which really aren't all that great, but because I paid almost $5 for them, I will be snacking away)

On the veggie side, I had a big tossed salad with my dinner... IMO no meal is really complete without a nice bowl of leafy greens! It was a nice sized one, and I added some calories to it with blue cheese and dried cranberries... but I needed to bulk up my calories a little more... but anyway...

am I making sense or am I just rambling?

    I love watermelon. I could eat it all day! emoticon

    My granddaughter celebrated her 8th birthday on Monday. Her Mom told her she could chose either ice cream or watermelon. She didn't hesitate to pick her favorite - watermelon! There's a girl after my own heart.

    I love the fruit and veggies too but yes you can get fat on them because of the natural sugar in them. But I have to agree the watermelon can be irresistable!!!

    I have to be careful eating fruit, as the calories/sugar sure rack up fast, I would easily eat half a melon, a whole bunch grapes etc in one go.
