When I joined this challenge, I never received any emails either. I don't know if there's supposed to be a person who addresses that or if it's an automated response. I found some encouragement here and I enjoyed reading the articles that can with each step. The Official 10-Minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge doesn't appear to have an active leader, but it continues to thrive. Wish I could figure that one out.

Please continue with the challenge and continue to post.

Have a healthy day. ~ Jeanne

emoticon I read your post and thought if we could be one body, we would have it made. Fruit is no problem for me, I love it, I use to hate vegetables. Since being on SP I have less of a problem with them, maybe it is just being older and willing to try different things. emoticon

fruit tends to get lost for me... I just don't get around to it. Because of this challenge I started adding raisins to my oatmeal ((alternating with figs out of the bag) and uncapped 100% fruit juice with breakfast: That's 2- fruits a day I wasn't getting before. Veggies aren't a problem, and when all else fails there's v8 100% juice (low sodium) to take up the slack.

Day 1 of week 2--I never received any emails. What are we suppose to be working on for week 2. I read some posts and everyone is talking about vegetables. Not a fan but I do try and get at least 5 servings a day, mostly fruit. Someone said something about cauliflower. SP has a fantastic recipe for broccoli soup. I love it. I was on a trip with my Mom to PA once and we stopped at a 5* restaurant, part of the package. I had cauliflower soup, it was part of my meal, so if I didn't like it, I would give it to my friend, who was the tour director. I loved it. It was very creamy and fattening though, you could just taste it. I made the SP version and substituted the broccoli with cauliflower and it was great. Of course it wasn't as creamy and buttery, but it wasn't as fattening and cholesterol clogging either. I gave the recipe to a SP friend and she used 1/2 broccoli and 1/2 cauliflower and said it was fantastic. I will make a batch of it when it get colder out.

I agree fully with that Englishgirl. I have a friend with a restaurant and he has a delicious Roasted veggie sandwich. I also have a great recipe for an eggplant sandwich. I will try to look at it and post it if I can.

Have you tried kale salad? There are many variations (search pinterest or epicurious or SP). Dressing can be a vinaigrette or yoghurt-based, add nuts, raisins, craisins, cheese...go wild.

PS Be sure and cut out the tough center rib of the kale.

I made ratatouille (veggie stew) this weekend--easy to get 5/day with that; this time though I added veggies I normally don't use or even buy often. This time I added collard greens and fresh mushrooms, in addition to the regular eggplant, zukes, tomatoes and green peppers. I froze much of it for my school lunches. EGAAD! School starts next Monday!

I love my fruits and veggies...I eat at least 3 servings for snacks through my day and 2 servings for dinner and 1 for snack at night. They help keep me full and are better than junk with empty calories.

I like to boil cauliflower til it's soft, then blend it up really good in a blender or food processor. Add some herbs and spices. Tastes even better than mashed potatoes! emoticon

I only ate those few calories that one day ... I was trying to see if that would help me lose weight, it didn't. I am now try to stay within the calories I'm suppose to. Hopefully that will help me lose weight because nothing else has.

Hello, ENGLISHGIRL~ If you don't consume enough food your body will go into starvation mode. Your body will burn calories trying to digest food. For me, that's what I understand about this challenge is to eat more veggies and fruit along with other healthy food choice. It's frustrating when you follow your plan and the scale doesn't cooperate. It will happen, just not as quickly as we'd like. Hang in there. You're on the right track.

SPEDED2. I don't always track what I eat, but I did yesterday, I ate a ham and Swiss cheese sandwich for lunch yesterday (4 slices of thin sliced ham and 2 slices of Swiss cheese with two leaves of lettuce on whole wheat bread) and a all glass of iced tea. My calorie count for the day, 584 calories. I did not eat breakfast of dinner. This is why I get so frustrated, I don't eat a lot, but my weight goes up anyhow. Any suggestions, I'm sure open to them! I forgot, I ate an apple later in the day.

What articles are you referring to? I'm completely lost! Whoops, should have gone through all of todays emails before asking this question ... sorry!

I have tried so hard to eat more veggies and fruits and I have, but darn it, my weight still went up, what in the dickens am I doing wrong?

Due to my heart, my exercise is limited!

I have enjoyed reading how other people have increased their fruit and vegetable intake in different ways. I have learned to like vegetables a lot - and I also find that a funsize (small) apple can fill me up as a snack or after a meal. Like another recent commenter, I have begun making vegetable soups several times during the week. They are easy to make, very filling. If you use bread with them you don't need butter the bread, and they are such a good way to use up the bits of vegetables in your fridge.

I have been really messed up on what a serving of veggies and fruits are. Last week I read a few articles and discovered frozen veggies are just as healthy for you as fresh ones which I was so happy about. I hate can ones and I like the veggie trays but I'm not quit sure what to do with raw ones. I went to the store and tried 3 new single servings of stemmed veggies and I loved them. Unsure if I can get in 5 a day! I did 2 last week!

I don't really have to difficult of a time eating 5 servings of vegetable a day. Fruit is a bit harder for me as I have certain times of years that I have no problem eating fruit but other times of year I don't care for what is in season. Also, it is harder to eat fruit because they seem to have more calories that veggies and the sugar in them makes me want more than I want to spend calories on. But veggies, I love them all the time!

I'm adding a salad to every lunch and dinner meal to get my daily dose of veggies. If you know me then you know this is a big step because I don't like salads.

Whether it's good or bad, someone will always have something to say about you. So let it go.

Got my asparagus and swiss chards & kale mix. Tonight I am doing a stirfry with the swiss chards & kale mix and using sliced boneless pork loin in it. Decided to reach my goal for week 2 I needed to stick with doing veggies and fruits. I am more apt to grab a fruit as a snack and eat veggies with a meal. Proud of myself since I've been spring cleaning and de-cluttering 1 room at a time, meaning I don't really want to cook by the end of the day. I did go to McD's last night but I opted for chicken nuggets and a side salad. Let the guys eat Big Macs, fries, and apple pies. I was satisfied with the salad and nuggets, which is emoticon Saw I was still under in calories for the range so, I had a yoplait light yogurt and del monte lite peaches for a nighttime snack. Focus on the veggies & fruits and staying active, watching in my tracking so when I feel hungry I can see where exactly I am lacking: is it fiber, folates, protein, fat- action plan after find a healthy food to fill the void.

Hi, I got the official link that I am now in week 2. Here is my question- Do I have to focus on getting 5 servings of just Veggies or is it Veggies and Fruit? emoticon emoticon
I already have that set as one of my daily goal if its veggies & fruits so this is going to be a great week. I plan on adding some new fresh veggie varieties to my family's menu this week- asparagus, snap peas, and whatever else I can currently see that looks good at SAMS club. Maybe I will try the swiss chard and kale mix to saute in olive oil? Has anyone done this?
Still sticking to my calorie range and aiming for 2000 calories burned in exercise per week or above. This keeps me pushing forward, being active, and not plopping down after work.
Think I might post around the house-
EAT VEGGIES NOT BE A VEGETABLE SITTING DOWN, something along those lines.
Hey, Eat the Veggies NOT be the Veggie- what do you think emoticon

I have embraced my local produce co-op opportunities. I love getting my basket and learning what to do with the veggies. Most of them are the usual suspects, but every once in a while I get thrown a curve ball. Vegetable soups are my newest toy. Three interesting soups last week. Loved them all.

Just finished week two. My main new vegetable that I experimented with was kale. My daughter had made kale chips before, but I found the taste to be kind of strong. I made this Creamy Kale Mexican Salad which I loved: http://ifoodreal.com/healthy-creamy-mexica
n-kale-salad/ I also added kale instead of cabbage in a vegetable soup recipe and liked that also.

Wise choices each day will get me where I want to be.

Just pinned a Light Broccoli Pasta Salad recipe on Pinterest. Right now all my recipes are just under Fabulous Foods. Think I need to start a board just for vegetables and one for main dishes with vegetables. If I go through and sort my recipes into these boards, they'll be easy to find when I need to plan for the week. Something to work on this evening:)

Wise choices each day will get me where I want to be.

Just starting week 2 of the challenge. One idea I liked from the articles was to put the vegetables in with other foods. Today I am making a chicken pot pie and will use frozen mixed vegetables in it. Tomorrow night I am making sausage patties. I have never tried adding grated carrots, but I am going to try it this time. My daughter often sautes onions, garlic, yellow summer squash, zucchini, and mushrooms and adds them to spaghetti sauce. Right now I am avoiding tomato because of a problem with LPR (acid reflux) so I am thinking maybe I could saute the veggies and cook some ground beef, sausage, or even chicken with them and serve over rice or pasta without the tomato sauce.

Another idea was to mix the vegetables. I especially like this Black Bean and Corn Salad by Rachel Ray.http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/rac

ipe.html The lime in it makes it delicious. Perhaps I could use lime on some other vegetables? Also I have found I can use hummus instead of mayonaise to make some vegetable salads. (Mix peas, chopped onion, chopped dill pickle, crumbled bacon and a little cheddar cheese with hummus)

I think preparation time has been what keeps me from using more veggies. I am going to prepare some carrots, celery, broccoli, and cauliflower today so I have it ready to use throughout the week. I have stocked up on frozen vegetables, so that will help too. The more I think about it, the more excited I get about using more vegetables this week!

Wise choices each day will get me where I want to be.

Heading into week 2. I love veggies so I think adding more to my meals and snacks might not be too hard.
Good luck everyone!

I tried a new sweet potato recipe last night. Yummy.

Sinus infections can mimic a tooth ache for certain! I'm glad you didn't have an infected tooth!

You can stay on Week Two as long as you want! Not a problem! Move on when you feel ready!

Teeth problems can really set us back! I was a Registered Dental Assistant for over 20 years... and I've seen them all. Good luck finding the problem. I hope you feel better soon.

That sound delicious SEAOFCARNAGE! I'm pretty simple... EVO and wine vinegar and I'm a happy girl. OH I do love blue cheese dressing on my raw veggies, too! I love the Bob's Big Boy Blue Cheese Dressing.

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
