Those pesky vegetables.
Monday, February 18, 2013
"Dieting" has pointed out to me over the years than I am a big carb eater. Getting in fruit is not a problem, after all it's sweet and we all love sweet. But vegetables, that's another story. Many of us have a vegetable crisper in our refrigerator, I have a vegetable rotter. Yep, rots them up right fast it does, and under the cover of darkness too.. Put in fresh lettuce, take out lettuce soup. Tomatoes come out looking like science experiments gone bad. Frozen vegetable come out with a case of freezer burn so bad there is no known medical cure. And canned vegetables are designed to hold up the packages of instant rice and noodle mixes. On the other hand, I do love omelets. What a wonderful place to put vegetable. Broccoli, onion, peppers, mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes. Woo-hoo! Toss in some cheese, a bit of leftover ham, chicken, and a vegetable serving or two can go right into my tracker. So this week I'm going to concentrate on the omelets and less on the Coco Krispies. I expect that it will show up at the scale in a positive way too!
