Just a quick check-in to report my progress on adding more vegetables to the daily food.
For me, "veggies" mostly means "eat a salad." A big salad. So it's no surprise that I got most of my additional servings of vegetables that way. And no ... I don't hit it perfectly every time.
1/8: Had a large salad at the gym. I consider that thing three servings of vegetables; rough estimate, it's at least three cups of greens.
1/9: Had a big bowl of arugula with goat cheese with lunch. And that was it for the day, veg-wise. #fail
1/10: Had a MASSIVE salad, mostly vegetables, at our school salad bar.
1/11: Lunch with a friend was pizza ... topped with a mountain of mesclun. Honestly, it was really good.
1/12: Lots of carrots and onions with dinner, but not enough. #fail
1/13: So far today, I have had arugula with lunch, plus onion and artichoke hearts and beans - do beans count? Hell. I guess I don't even know how I'm doing today!
1/14: Not the best effort, but I did have a big helping of arugula with my lunch.
1/15: A true success! Had my greens at lunch, and then a big helping of broccoli with dinner. Each was about 1.5 servings, so I did it!
Ever forward. I will update this post as time goes on.
