Had at least five veggies every day.
Tried a new one--Mexican squash--and loved it.
Have the ingredients for SP fluffy sweet potatoes but haven't made it yet.

I wasn't able to keep a record of what I had to eat this week, unfortunately, but I did eat at least 3-5 servings of vegetables every day and while I did not try a new to me vegetable, I did try some new to me vegetable dishes (sadly, they are Indian dishes and I have no idea what they were called. Tasty though).

Nope, fruits don't count this week. Not for the Veggie challenge anyway.

Monday I had three servings of carrots. Wanted to finish off some leftovers. I was going to have a mixed veggie but I let the poor pan of veggies burn dry (not on purpose)!

Tuesday I had .....? I don't remember. I've been eating entirely too many sandwich type meals and not enough veggies.

Today so far I have had cucumber and onion salad. I'll have more veggies for supper. I know I'll be having beans and tomatoes.

Can I count potato chips? NOT! emoticon

11/15 -- sweet potato, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, swiss chard, onion, tomatoes. And beans (which I guess are vegetables).

I snacked on salad today, which was my extra vegetable.

Okay, on Monday, I had servings of mashed potatoes and corn in my Banquet meal for lunch, cauliflower with my dinner and I snacked on celery sticks throughout the day. So far today, I had two cups of mixed vegies stir fry (done in the microwave, not fried) which contained broccoli, carrots, corn, pea pods, red pepper and water chestnuts.

I'm going to try to meet this challenge by eating two vegies with dinner everynight.

So today, I had small helpings of cole slaw, collards, and green beans (for lunch). For dinner, I had a sweet potato, a big spinach salad, and roasted brussels sprouts.

I need to do 1 & 2; with summer and the fresh produce not as readily available I am not doing well with my 5 a day. Today 2 fruits & 0 vegetables, which as we know is terrible. So starting tomorrow I am in for at least 3 veggies.

Nothing's gonna stop me now.

Today I had black beans with onions and cilantro, then a veggie barley soup for supper with onions, garlic, tomatoes, green beans, potatoes, celery and carrots. Yummy!

Made chicken kebabs with yellow bell pepper and zucchini tonight. Unfortunately, though, that was it for the day. Will try to get more veggies in tomorrow.

One can eat too many vegetables. I will do #2. Would like to try eat a new veggie everyday but was placed on a new eating plan and can't eat anything new. We are eliminating.

I love veggies, and will look for more veggie recipes, especially for the crock pot.

Every day I am on the verge of making slight changes that would make all the difference in my life.

For a quick 'veggie fix'...
My favorite veggies are celery, radishes, and carrots. I like to cut them up and have them ready in the fridge...kinda my veggie trail mix.


With a little planning and 'fussing'...
My all time favorite is sweet potato 'fries' baked in the oven.
I also love squash.

Yum!

I will try for 1. I'm not going to be cooking most of this week, so I don't have as much say over what I eat or how it's prepared, but my friend who I'll be staying with cooks pretty healthy meals (healthier in some ways than we do because she isn't limited by my husband's food allergies).

I'm in for this challenge. My favorite is high calorie Corn! After all, I'm from the Midwest in the States...where the corn grows tall. In fact, I am a Cornhusker (from Nebraska)!!!

I'll let you know how I do with the veggie challenge during the week.

Ok, let's work on Vegetables this week. Do you like to eat veggies? What is your favorite veggie? How many veggies do you eat a day?

Choose one or more of these challenges for the week.

1. Eat more veggies than usual. If you usually eat three a day, eat four or five veggies, etc. At the end of the week let us know how you did.

2. Let us know each day what veggies you ate for that day.

3. Try eating a new veggie, new to you that is. What did you try? Did you like it?

4. Find a new Veggie recipe and fix it and let us know what you fixed if if you liked it.

Who's in for this challenge?

Have a great VEGGIE week!
