I know, you are thinking..."yes mom!" I struggle to eat veggies. I can easily eat fruit but veggies have been causing me grief.
I am doing better in the veggie area but I really want to be more consistent. I have been trying to add more veggies to meals. My DH hasn't complained so I am excited about that. So far there hasn't been much that he hasn't liked. The one thing he didn't like will be easy to tweak so that he will like it. He isn't a fan of black beans. I have found a recipe that has them in it and he likes it. He is just picky!
Years ago, I think we had been married a year or so, he wasn't excited about the dinner that I made. He proceeded to tell me that when he was at home in Mexico if his mom made something for dinner that he didn't want to eat, he would tell her to make him something else and she would. I told him to go outside and if he saw a sign that said restaurant then he could come in and order, otherwise, he needed to eat what I made and be happy about it.
There was another time that he made a face at the dinner (something he likes but just didn't want it that day). I didn't say anything, I just got up, took his plate and put the food back in the respective pans. He has never done that since! lol
He knows that if he wants fish, he has to cook it. I can't stand the smell or to even look at it. Again, I don't eat seafood. It isn't that I haven't had it cooked properly, I have tried fish of all kinds, prepared different ways and I just can't eat it. Let's just say that I can't swallow it and it turns my stomach! Oh and I really don't like my food to look at me! lol
So today on the SparkCoach, it was all about making healthy changes in our eating. It inspired me to really work to get more veggies into my meals. I am committing to getting 5 freggies (fruits and veggies) a day. I will do it!!
Today for breakfast I had a bowl of bran flakes with coconut milk and sliced banana.
Lunch was peanut butter and jelly on a sandwich thin, 2 carrots, and some grapes.
Oh before you get all in an uproar about how I wrote a blog and didn't do a video blog, I am NOT giving up the video blogs. I just wanted to do this quick blog and I will do a video with my weekly update later!
