Fruits and Veggies
Sunday, June 28, 2009
I've decided if I want to get off of this plateau (stilll stuck at 169.2-170.2), I need to start eating a lot more real food. Fresh fruit and veggies! I kind of got in a veggie/fruit rut. I'd get all my veggie servings from salad and I hadn't been eating much fruit.
One thing I've been really into is Greek Salad. My parents recently went on a vacation in Greece and are addicted! Basically all you do is slice up cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion, and green pepper. Then you sprinkle it with salt and pepper and let it sit for a minute or two. Then you top with an ounce of feta cheese (i use reduced fat), drizzle with olive oil (about 1 tsp) and sprinkle with oregano. It's really easy and SO good! I think it ends up being about 130 calories. I also have been eating baby carrots and hummus which used to be one of my favorite snacks.
I just had a late breakfast of scrambled eggs with zucchini, onions, tomatoes and a sprinkle of parmesean cheese. I definitely missed eating so many different veggies!
I just went to the store and bought strawberries and bananas for my morning cereal. I also have some apples and applesauce in the fridge. I think I'm more of a veggie person than a fruit person (it used to be the opposite).
Hopefully this will get me out of my rut!
