Happy Friday!
I am doing better than I thought this week. I forgot that I made (and have been eating) portabello mushrooms and onions that I sauted up for a snack.

Today is:
apple
spinach soup
mushroom/onion
veggie stir fry
asparagus with chicken
raspberries

emoticon I am feeling much better about my intake for the week. Started out not so great, but ended much better! I hope you all get healthy (stay healthy) over the weekend! emoticon

Banana

mixed fruit bowl-are they really fruit?!?
clementine
side salad from McDonald's

DH gave his 'cooties' to DD -- they're both still sick and finally managed to infect me on the weekend, sooo my fruits and veggies for the past few days have mostly been -chicken noodle soup from a package.....

also some fruit juices, and last night 2 big bowls of homemade beef vegetable barley soup....

I will be glad when I can taste and smell food again!

Rose, (and others) I completely understand about having to start over once getting down emotionally. This is going to be a great week, I just finished my second serving of fruit, and have two servings of veggies planned with my dinner, and I'll eat an apple on my way home, that makes 5! woo hoo!!

Does anyone get heartburn from all the fruit that has acid. I know I do, so I limit it. Veggies are fine. Bananas seem to be ok, but how much is one serving? How about cherries? And mellon is fine. Even watermellow if you get heartburn.

No problem for me! I love veggies, but I'm not so crazy about fruit. I always eat at least 5 servings of veggies every day.

Remember to be yourself, because the people that matter don't mind, and the people that mind don't matter.

The quickest way to failure is to try to please everyone.


Life is short! Break the rules! Forgive quickly! Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably..And never regret anything that made you smile.

I've come to realize that the difference in success or failure is not how you look, how you dress, or how you're educated. It's how you think!

Rose, you should get your nails done in pink with a little piggy face on the big toe ...then tape a curley-que made from a pipe cleaner onto your heel. Hope you heal soon.

Not a great day f & V wise. Slept late, worked out, had brunch then went out to dinner with friends. Margaretias and chili colorado...yummy but blew the calories.

One Fuze, some V8, some salsa....oh yeah Lime emoticon

I was looking back over the last couple of weeks and we all should be proud of ourselves. I've gone from eating maybe 1 veggie a day to eating a minimum of 4 fruits and veggies a day. Yeah some days its hard to get 5 in but its still a huge improvement.

We are all becoming more aware of our problem areas and times and are trying to do better. Pat yourself on the back and you have my permission to treat yourself to a pedicure!

The baked stuffed sweet potatoes were a huge hit. I am not sure of the calories, but it'd be easy enough to find out by running it through the recipe checker. I think with the light cream cheese and skim milk, plus only 1 tbsp. brown sugar for 4 servings, they aren't all that bad for you. MUCH better than the usual candied sweet potatoes.

Doing well today.

Apples, banana, plum

Coleslaw with chopped apple, pear and banana

Dinner will have leftover turnip and carrots and probably some more turkey. LOL

Sure. Just take 2 large sweet potatoes and cut 'em in half. Put them cut side down on foil on a baking sheet and bake till done. Scoop out the potato and leave about 1/4 inch of peel. Mash the potato with 1/4 cup light cream cheese spread, 2 tbsp. skim milk, 1 tbsp. brown sugar, and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon. Scoop it back into the shells and sprinkle with chopped pecans. Bake at 425F. for about 10 minutes or till the nuts are toasted. Enjoy.

I think your body gets used to the fiber. I have no problem that way.

Today is our Canadian Thanksgiving. I have a big turkey in the oven. At least with me doing the cooking, I can control the amount of unhealthy food for dinner.

Did much better with fruit and veggies yesterday and am off to a good start today. The meal tonight is heavy on veggies too, so that is good.

Since I love ALL veggies and fruits (except for the texture of mushrooms) this has always been easy for me! I could live on veggies except for a occasional burger or meatloaf (always made with the leanest ground beef). I even prefer to eat veggies "a la natarual" foregoing the sauces/creams, etc., but they are a nice change - once in a while - to "splurge" on creamy veggies! Good luck to you on eating more veggies & fruits! They are yummy!!! emoticon Don't forget to EAT pumpkins instead of just decorating them!! You'll probably find the more you eat the fruits & veggies, the more you'll love them!
