This week's topic: Fruits & Veggies.
Is there a new fruit or veggie that you have tried recently? Or did you discover a new way to cook an old favorite?
I love fruits and veggies! Consuming the prescribed amount of fruits and vegetables is easy to accomplish for me. While many do not like them, I enjoy them and find them easy to prepare. Salads are my number one way to eat vegetables because they are easy to fix and I usually make mine with a variety of veggies. I also like to throw some bell peppers, onions, or even some fresh spinach into my eggs in the morning. Spinach and kale are staples in one of my favorite breakfast smoothies.
There has not ever been a time in my life that I have not liked fruit, of all kinds. I think of fruit as nature's candy bar, but without all the calories. Fruit provides a nice and healthy way to satisfy my sweet tooth. When they are in season, I cannot get enough of mangos, strawberries, apples, blueberries, oranges, kiwis, melons, pineapple....the list goes on to cover the vast majority of fruits.
Now if I could convince my child to consume some vegetables. Hmmmmm.
