Eat your veggies
Thursday, May 10, 2012
Yes, I am finding out that eating your veggies is a very good thing. I have been adding a healthy portion of cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, carrots etc to my meals. I feel full longer and seem to be able to control my cravings better. And I am feeling better too.
I never cared for veggies too much, but since I have started including them in all my meals, I seem to want them there. Especially the cucumber, it is a refreshing treat to have a bite now and then while eating dinner. Even if I don't have salad or dressing, I like the cucumbers all by itself. This am I found that a touch of banana pepper juice tasted very good on them too if you want a little kick. LOL
I also enjoy a cup of herbal tea with agave nectar after meals and it helps with my digestion and I think the nectar has greatly improved my inflamation issues. My pain has been significantly decreased the last couple of weeks. I still have some issue with swelling but I think that comes with sitting too long. (At the hospital and in the car for the last few days) Today the swelling is noticably down.
I have been tryiing different flavors of tea. I like the blueberry, but I still think orange spice is my fav. I like the cherry pretty good too. Any suggestions on what flavors to try? What are your favorites? I would like to know what my friends like in the herbal tea arena. :)
Well, I hope everyone is having a wonderful day. I think I am gonna relax and play games for awhile on facebook ha ha ha. I have been neglecting my flower shop. LOL I have meeting tonight and my studies are all done. Time for play :)
Love to all.....Joyce
