Eat More (Veggies) Feel Better

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

I've been working on the Eat More Feel Better challenge. This is a challenge to encourage you to eat lots more veggies each day. It has been helping. (Although I wish the challenge were written a little more specifically, the way that the 5k training plan had daily boxes to check off.)

I'm going to stay at week 2 a little longer, since I still need to work on getting 5 vegetable servings a day ony my plate. But I'm doing better.

We had one day last week where frozen pizza was the answer to everyone going different directions around dinner time. But I made a salad and ate 1/2 to 1/3 of the pizza that I would normally have considered a dinner portion.

My big success for the week was taking a salad with chicken to a kid event that was a pot luck. I knew from last year that this was going to not be the healthiest of spreads. (KFC, mac & cheese, bags of chips, and then a big pizza delivery - as if there wasn't enough food in the pot luck). So I didn't even go through the buffet line. I just sat and ate my salad. I was full at the end and even with a small piece of cake, didn't go out of my calorie range.
