Eating veggies will help me loose weight YES! Well as much as I know this to be true it has always bean a struggle. Who can endure the salad, salad, salad, bla, bla, bla,? Then I did a few tweaks that changed the way I think about getting my greens. I add them to wraps by the handful, replace green beans for my pasta when I'm having spaghetti, and make a veggie " chili that is packed with flavor not calories just to name a few.
Think outside the box and explore new options when it comes to the veggies you hated as a kid...zucchini, spinach, ocher, chard etc.

Cut lettuce and other veggies into a large container that seals well. Put a paper towel on top and close lid and put container in frig upside-down. Every time you take out a portion -- change the paper towel -- veggies will stay fresh longer -- I use this trick all the time.
