7/26/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Monday

It’s so hard to eat the amount of vegetables you should, especially if you work full time.  I can preach about the importance of fresh, seasonal vegetables, but the reality is, everyone does the best they can.  If there are some ways to add vegetables where you can…then do it!

-Add spinach or lettuce to a sandwich

-Pick up a salad at the bagel shop, or a lot if the fast food chains (just don’t use a cream based salad dressing).

-On Sunday’, pre-bag baby carrots, cherry tomatoes, sweet bell peppers, pea pods or par-cooked broccoli.  These can be quickly packed with lunches and snacks.

-Make pasta sauce on Sunday with shredded zucchini, or carrots in it.

-Frozen veggies are convenient and fast.

Most contain as many vitamins as fresh ones do.  Be cautious and investigate % of nutrition if drinking ‘veggie juice’ as a means of eating your veggies.  They can be really high in calories, but don’t provide enough nutrition.
