Those pesky vegetables.

Monday, February 18, 2013

"Dieting" has pointed out to me over the years than I am a big carb eater. Getting in fruit is not a problem, after all it's sweet and we all love sweet. But vegetables, that's another story. Many of us have a vegetable crisper in our refrigerator, I have a vegetable rotter. Yep, rots them up right fast it does, and under the cover of darkness too.. Put in fresh lettuce, take out lettuce soup. Tomatoes come out looking like science experiments gone bad. Frozen vegetable come out with a case of freezer burn so bad there is no known medical cure. And canned vegetables are designed to hold up the packages of instant rice and noodle mixes. On the other hand, I do love omelets. What a wonderful place to put vegetable. Broccoli, onion, peppers, mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes. Woo-hoo! Toss in some cheese, a bit of leftover ham, chicken, and a vegetable serving or two can go right into my tracker. So this week I'm going to concentrate on the omelets and less on the Coco Krispies. I expect that it will show up at the scale in a positive way too! emoticon

    I definately get the vegetable rotter, i have the same problem, my intentions are good.
    And i love how my grocery cart looks when its full of vegies, all of the pretty colors and healthy options.....and then i get home and my fridge even looks good, but it just doesnt seem to make it to the table. I am improving in that area though.
    It looks like you are doing an awsome job too. Keep up the good work, you've come a long way!

    I love that -- a vegetable rotter!

    Soup is another great way to use the veggies. Whenever I have veggies going bad I make a big pot of soup. Also, you can throw a bag of mixed frozen veggies into a pot of rice.
