When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

Nothing fancy, whatever Italian salad dressing we happen to have on hand. I recently got the Kraft Greek salad dressing to use on the next round.

In the past we would blanche the veggies before marinating, but since I'm basically lazy when it comes to food prep (I'm what SparkPeople's dietician Becky would call a "grab 'n go" eater...lol!) and I like the crunch of fresh veggies, we've shifted mostly to just cutting them up and tossing them in. I figure also without blanching there are more vitamins in the veggies left intact...yeah...just justifying my lazy approach, I know... :-)

Whatever's handy, but usually we cut up the following and toss 'em in:

Bell Peppers...the more color, the better...green, red, yellow, orange...we're BIG pepper fans!

Brocolli

Cauliflower

Baby Carrots

less often we'll add summer squash and for variety at times to make it heartier we'll toss in some whole grain pasta, olives & cubes of cheese.

My DW and I have been keeping our marinated veggies well-stocked and have taken a huge helping with me to work today for snacking here and there throughout the day...yum! :-)

Have a great Thursday everyone!

There is a link between energy (i.e. feeling good) and the foods we eat. Eating fruits and vegetables not only provide fiber, natural sugars, and additional water to your system. They also provide plenty of vitamins that fuel your body. They help keep our skin clear, nails strong, & hair shiny, keep bad headaches & migraines to a minimum, and depression at bay.

Your challenge today? EAT AT LEAST 1 FRUIT OR VEGETABLE WITH EVERY MEAL. Ways to get in your fruits and vegetables (it is recommended that you get at least 5 a day) are:

*Fruit smoothie
*Vegetable juice
*Vegetable soup
*Fruit or vegetable salad
*Grilled or steamed vegetables
*Tossing in vegetables into an omelet, pasta, or rice dish
*Fruit sorbet

These are just a few ideas. There are tons of recipes in the Spark recipe area.

Have a FANTASTIC Thursday everyone!
