Well, time to chicken (I mean "CHECK in"!). I'm such a hopeless foodie!

Ooh, Sly...that lamb sounded positively droolworthy! Soooo good...!

Had blueberries, melon, spring mix salad greens, onion, cauliflower, and carrots today.

Hmmm... blueberries on my cereal this morning, a clementine, three cups of mushrooms reduced down with my lamb this evening, and a cup of mixed vegetables. Does that count as six servings?

That lamb was to die for, btw. Nobody else in my family likes it, so I get the cubed lamb just for myself, and divide it up into six ounce servings. Tonight I browned one serving in a pan with a spritz of EVOO, tossed in a little salt and a lot of garlic and rosemary and then added a large package of sliced mushrooms, and browned everything on high heat. Once it was sufficiently browned, I added a generous splash of marsala wine, and then let it steam and simmer until it was almost boiled away. Left a really yummy glaze on the lamb and the mushrooms.

Today I've had about 1/2 cup of cucumbers, 2 cups of cabbage, 1 cup new potatoes, 1 cup carrots, and 1 apple. It's a great day for veggies.

Now I need balance!

Oh, I roasted the potatoes and carrots with a pork tenderloin, and my husband ate both veggies along with the cucumbers for a snack, progress!!!!!

What is a freggie? A fruit or vegetable. This is a simple challenge to make sure that we have at least 6 servings of fruits and/or vegetables in our diet each day.

Actually, I have heard that we should have 8-10 a day, but people often claim that they can not afford fruits and vegetables because they are too expensive. Some of them are. (And I sometimes eat them anyway.) However, many vegetable are cheap and affordable. Sometimes people will buy bags of chips, candy, and other foods when they could get good freggies for the same price.

Our challenge: Buy and eat those vitamin rich freggies, and forget about the chips, doughnuts, and cookies!

For this challenge I would like you to post which fruits and vegetable you have eaten each day.

If you have any tips for cheap options, or for getting kids (or husbands, or even yourself) to eat veggies, please share!

I will be giving out at least 3 goodies at the end of this challenge, but may well give out more if we have some really good recipes or tips.
