The original idea? To try to eat ten servings of fruits and vegetables a day. See Sam tries for ten.
I was curious to see how I’d do with a positive eating goal and I thought I’d share my thoughts and results with you.
Short version: While initial enthusiasm helps, it might have been too ambitious a goal for a busy work week!
My report card:
Day 1: Tuesday
Vegetable stew: sweet potato, onions, peas; Side of mixed veggies: green beans, cauliflower, broccoli; banana, Bites of apple, zucchini noodles, asparagus, artichoke hearts
But it was Day 1!
Day 2: Wednesday
Orange juice, Eggplant, Okra , Zucchini noodles, Bok choy, banana
Day 3: Thursday
veggie burger, hummus, veggie ramen: mushrooms, peppers, Bok Choy
Day 4: Friday
Melon, strawberries, grapes, lettuce, beets, sweet potatoes, carrots, spinach, tomatoes, berries, arugula
Day 5: Saturday
Orange Juice, mango, orange
Day 6: Sunday
Orange juice, veggie fresh rolls with broccoli slaw and carrot sticks
Day 7: Monday
Edamame, orange, carrot sticks, red peppers, tomatoes, kale, green onions
The first day of anything new thing is great. So much motivation!
Also, I don’t do that badly on my weekdays without much effort. Thanks GoodFood. I do the vegetarian prefab meal kits three nights a week and they’re loaded with vegetables.
But weekends will take work! The main take away is that that’s where I need to put some effort in if I want to get enough fruits and vegetables.
Do you track fruits and vegetables? Do you get ten servings a day?
