Too many vegetables
Monday, November 09, 2015
I am on a 10 week program that has some pretty specific "rules" about the food you consume. You have to have X grams of protein (etc.), with every meal, eat 6 times per day, and every meal has to include a vegetable.
I have been a vegan (1 month), a vegetarian (6 months), and a pescatarian (5+1/2 years). You would think these little rules would be easy as pie (oh dear, I said *pie*) for someone who has eaten a diet with "rules" for so long. Well, they aren't. I am having so much trouble getting in a vegetable at each of the 6 meals. When I have an apple and peanut butter, I don't want a vegetable. When I am having a cheese and crackers snack, I don't want a veggie. Most of the time, unless it's asparagus with my eggs, I don't want a vegetable at breakfast.
I am becoming kind of anti-vegetable. I swear if I have to eat another spear of broccoli, I'm gonna hurl.
I find I can sneak them into things like smoothies with no problem, but if I can identify them, like with hummus or just on their own, BLECH. I'm done with them. I want a fat piece of Italian bread with a smear of butter. And lots of grapes. Ooooooh how I want to eat a whole bowl of grapes. My mouth is watery...
Instead, I will go pack my six mini meals for tomorrow, and try to figure out how I am going to gag down six more servings of veggies throughout the day.
I *never* thought I would be sick of veggies!
