I am a food freak. I hate preservatives, so I finally learned how to make my own dressings so that I could avoid all the chemicals in the bottled kind. I found the best "ranch" had a nice greek yogurt base fresh dill parsley and cilantro along with some salt and garlic. Mix with a bit of vinegar and you have a better bang for your calorie buck, I actually like it a little on the tart side! But my new favorite is to take the leftover cilantro and parsley from a recent recipe and make a chimichurri, with a spicy pepper and lemon juice a little goes a very long way. emoticon

Big salads are great! When I was working I used to take a salad of romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes, cucumber, some red onion, with a small can of tuna packed in water. I would dress it with EVO and wine vinegar. It was easy and filling. I would always keep some good broth type soup in my desk drawer for a warm nutritious break and drink it from my coffee cup!

I love a good big salad at lunch. Lite-ranch dressing, lots of variety of vegetables, cottage cheese, maybe some sunflower seeds, and croutons, a few extra calories but they make it good to me. Broth-based veggie soups are great, but I tend to oversalt them and then get super bloated. I do have one on hand most times though.

Packing salads for lunch is a great idea. Even now that I'm home 24/7 I still love a salad for lunch. My favorite is to add a small can of tuna (packed in water) on romaine, with tomatoes, and kidney or garbanzo beans. Add a little bit of olive oil with wine vinegar ... and delish!

Swiss chard tasted alot like spinach, but maybe a bit sweeter. I also bought a mixed greens combo called "Olivia's Organic Cooking Greens" I have used it as a salad base as well as sauted. It contains spinach, chard, collards, kale, chicory, and mustard greens.

Bought mixed baby salad greens and spinach last night, broccoli, and mushrooms and will use up the last of my sweet peppers and tomatoes from my garden this week.

Bananas (tried smashed mixed with nonfat, plain Greek yogurt, protein powder, and PB2--both fresh and frozen--mixed the frozen to stretch some ice cream in a healthier way) and applesauce (no sugar, but with strawberries) help with my fruits and I can mix in rice bran or flax seed to up fiber and protein.

I like to add the basic greens mix, some radish and green or red onion, tomatoes, in the fall I add sundries tomatoes, cucumbers and olives. If I have them I also add pickled jalepenos and pepperoncinis. Sometimes I find a mix of roasted peppers and capers. These often are packed in oil, so I only use lemon juice or a vinegar to top the salad. We must remember that the nutrients packed in veggies often require a bit of fat to break them down to their full potential. Do no fear the oil, fear too much of it! I also like to top off a salad with flax or sunflower seeds. If I am in a fruit mood I will switch out some of those veggies for a pear or apple. You can always add fish or chicken to a salad or a hard boiled egg to add protein.

I also have been known to adds beans or lentils to my salad. Artichoke hearts are good for texture, I know not everything I add is a veggie, but my salads are never boring. I even love to make a raw kale salad that people who do not like kale love. (I use curly kale, molest the kale with 2 tbs of vinegar or lemon juice. Let it sit overnight, add a spicy pepper finely chopped, or red pepper flakes, toss 1 tbs olive oil, just before you serve it add 2 tbs of toasted pine nuts, some nice crystalline sea salt, and 2 tbsp of fresh grated parmesan.) Even the most negative kale hater will probably at least try it!

I like adding any leftover vegetables to my salad, but I can't say I've ever had 10 different vegetables!

I bought Swiss Red Chard for the first time yesterday. I plan to quickly blanch it, then saute it in a bit of olive oil and add a T of pine nuts. Anyone have any other suggestions?

That's one new vegetable, need to find a second one in a few days.

Wow! SeaofCarnage! Can I have you as my personal cook!? Recipes sound amazing! I agree with the green beans! Horrible to eat fresh, but wonderful in a bit of oil and seasoned!

Nice about at least 10 textures & colors.... what is in your salad to make it amazing?

Try romanesca or roasted cauliflower! I hear both are some of the most nutrient packed foods out there. Also I loathe fresh green beans. I have found that if I lightly sauté them in sesame oil and with shallots and mushrooms, then finish them off with a drizzle of tamarin and sesame seeds, I love them. You can also add veggies into any pasta or rice dish or even pile them onto a salad. I once had a friend that said the key to a fabulous salad is to have at least 10 different textures and colors to keep your mouth excited. It really is true!

I am taking the challenge to try 2 new vegetables this week. I love vegetables, but tend to stick to the same old thing, zucchini, butternut squash, green beans, carrots, lettuce, onions, and tomatoes. Will let you know what I find at the grocery store today.

I actually get tons of veggies. I need to focus on getting more fruits and less starches. So this week I am focusing on less starches and more veggies and fruits in their original forms. Fingers crossed.

It's not the same as the Cabbage Diet or the recipe from WW. I always mix things up by adding kidney beans. I love kidney beans! They add such good protein! Let me know how you liked it or mix it up and make it your own! Enjoy!

Getting in my veggies is easy. First I drink Shakeology. It has 7 serving of veggies.
I snack all day on asparagus, carrots, snap peas, cherry tomatoes...... depending on the season. I have these sitting on my desk w/in easy reach. this keeps me out of the candy bowl sitting around.

I want to say GREAT JOB to all of you!!

Know your WHY and keep after it!

Great! I have a recipe for a great Cabbage Soup if you are interested. It's from the Cabbage Diet, and Weight Watchers (combined).

Try making a veggie soup with cabbage, carrots, tomatoes, kidney beans, and anything else you can think of to throw in! That is a really good way to get in veggies!

Remember to check your serving size. The serving sizes vary according to what you are eating, so you might be reaching your quota in by serving size!

I'm still having a hard time getting in five servings of vegetables. A salad at dinner helps, having a snack of carrots helps, but I just don't need a lot for lunch.

So far, so good! Surprisingly the weekend is more difficult than the weekdays. (I am one that flourishes with routine.)

Starting week 2 tomorrow. Getting in 5 servings will take planning but I know I can do it. Roasted veggies today & apples bought. One small step at a time.

Today is the start of Week 2. All is going well. Getting number of calories in is still a challenge that I am working on each day.

Starting week 2, getting in my fruit and veggies daily will be a challenge, will have to plan meals better.

Have a great week
