April Wrap Up and May beginning

Monday, May 02, 2011

My goal for April was to do strength training 3 times a week and I didn't quite make it to my goal. I was doing pretty well until this last week and I forgot to do my legs one day and then I forgot every other day. I wish I could say I had accomplished this month, however I did not and now I just get to try again with May.

For my May goal I have decided to increase my vegetable intake. I currently eat tons of fruits everyday, however I don't eat very many vegetables, so I have decided it's time to increase my veggie intake. I have decided that I will eat 2 vegetables a day, or 14 vegetables a week for a grand total of 62 for the month of May.

I'm off to a good start on Sunday I loaded up my fridge and freezer with Carrots, celery, edamame, cucumbers, avocados, and asparagus with the plan of eating many delicious vegetables.

If you feel so inclined I'd love recommendations for veggies and veggie preparation.

    I try to eat seasonal vegetables since they're cheaper, so right now I'm enjoying asparagus. I broil it, steam it or sautee it in a little bit of olive oil, salt and pepper. I'm also having a lot of collard greens (I usually make those in the slow cooker), spinach and carrots in salads and new potatoes, which are amazing roasted with whatever herbs you have and either pat of butter or some olive oil. Yum!

    I agree on the steaming - I like to pop frozen veggies into the microwave with a little water and steam them up. Also grilling is a great idea. Love asparagus grilled.

    Try to simply steam some broccoli. So delicious.
