Tips/Ideas:
- Fruit tastes AMAZING on pizza (made with whole wheat crust, of course!) Pineapple is my favorite, with some turkey pepperoni and lowfat cheese, low sodium/low carb sauce. (and the sauce would be a veggie!) Load other veggies on the pizza also! (Special tip if you have kids...you can load up a pizza with veggetables by dicing them very small, so they are almost not recognizable as their normal forms, and telling them it's "special seasoning"...works for friends' kids all the time! Also, can use the "special seasoning" with low-fat cream cheese to make a GREAT dip for other veggies or put over cream cheese on a low carb pizza crust and sprinkle with low-fat shredded cheddar to make a veggie pizza)

- Veggie Stuffed Pepper - Take a Bell Pepper (Any color...I prefer Red) and core. Cut up tomatoes, broccolli, cauliflower, carrots, or veggies of choice. Add seasoning of choice, like Mrs. Dash. Add low fat cheese, in chuncks or shredded (I sometimes use low fat string cheese because it's easy to just break into chuncks). Fill Pepper with veggies and cheese. (or set aside some cheese to sprinkle on top.) Place filled Pepper in pan or on cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 10-15 MINS. If you don't want to bake it...it's fantastic to just cut up and eat as is, as well...with maybe some low fat salad dressing.

- In freezer safe bowl...mash a very ripe (overripe even!) banana (or microwave an apple, pear, etc to soft then mash. Add berries if desired. Add a dash of vanilla extract. Freeze. Eat at desired consistancy. DELICIOUS! Makes you feel like you are eating ice cream or frozen yogurt without any guilt AND it gets some fruit in your diet! You can play around with flavorings also...making sure to use sugar free types...cinnamon works with the apple for kind of a frozen apple pie ice cream...yummy!


This was a fun challenge!

Weekly totals: 37 servings of vegetables and 9 servings of fruit. = 46 total fruit/veg servings.

Idea to share

Mon: Have some extra veggies in the fridge and don't know what to do with them? Salads don't have to be lettuce based, you know. Experiment and come up with some fascinating and healthy new salad to bulk out your meals and to add extra iron and fibre to your diet.

Tue: If you have some sort of desert, make it healthier by reducing the amount of ice cream, cake...pie, whatever to half or less than half and replacing the missing portion with fresh fruit.

Wed

Thur: Fruit probably goes better in a savory salad than you might think. Try some pitted and chopped cherries or some mandarin slices. Pear also goes really well and they add a slightly tangy flavour to an otherwise dull salad.

This week keeping on the theme of basics we are gonna all try and get our fruits and veggies!! Fruits and veggies are not only FULL of vitamins and minerals but help sustain satisfaction, and are relativly low caloire while being high in flavor!

This week for every serving on fruit or veggies you have, and share with us you will recive 1 pt. Also for a bonus everyday you can post one unique way to get fruits/veggies into your diet. Yes eating an apple on the run or opening a can of corn is great but share with others a great way to incoporate them. for example mixing spinach in with your poatatos or having a banana with peanut butter on crackers. Everyone can use new fruit veggie ideas so share away!

Also you can edit your original post so that all your numbers are in one place if you would like. BEst of luck!!
