Blog Smog...

Wednesday, June 04, 2008

I don't really like to blog, but I thought I would write a little today about my "so far ness..."
I am currently trying harder than ever. I am working out on my elliptical and my little home gym system, along with "playing" with the Wii Fit. I feel the difference, but I need to eat a little better to weigh a little less I guess. I need more fruits and veggies. I just can't seem to get them in?? I like the V8, but know it's not good to drink your veggies!
Any comments or tips would be welcomed!
Thanks for all the support so far! I love this journey!!

    I'm with you that it's hard to get 4.5 cups of veg in every day. I made mock mashed potatoes which is pureed cauliflower that I can spoon up to get them all in. I also drink V8 now and then. I made a veg frittata yesterday which is kind of like an omelet, but cooked in the oven. Very tasty and it lasted for 2 meals. Just whatever is in your fridge could be put in an omelet or frittata. I eat drive-through salads when on the road. I'm home a lot now and it's harder to get motivated to compose a salad. Hmmm

    Do you like to cook? There are several cookbooks out there right now about ways of sneaking your veggies in. I'm planning to buy one of them this week, I've been looking at it for a while.

    V8 is better than no fruits or veggies, to be sure; I think it's high in sodium, but not sure.

    Do you like smoothies? Simple to make, good way to get in your calcium & fruit -- even veggies. Believe it or not, adding greens to it won't change the taste. I put spinach or kale in my smoothies sometimes -- and even DH drinks it, & he is decidedly not a greens person! I just use soymilk, 1 c strawberries, 1 banana (I freeze the fruit, which makes it thicker). Add a tablespoon of peanut butter, and you've got yourself a breakfast in a glass. Fast & easy! They say it's better to eat your fruit than drink it, but it's better than not eating any fruit!

    How about fruit salad? I did one the other day where you mix about 1/4 c yogurt with a couple of tablespoons of coconut, then just mix that with pineapple, kiwi, & banana (or whatever you enjoy).

    What sorts of veggies do you like?
