This Week’s Strategy
I’m willing to admit, I probably don’t eat as many vegetables as I should. However, this is another positive side to pregnancy… an increased awareness of the amount of vegetables I should be eating and a commitment to increasing my intake.
I definitely need to eat more veggies, so here’s my strategies for the week in order to increase the amount of veggies I eat every day.
- Precut and bag 1 cup portions of vegetables for grab and bag snacks. I figure snap peas, cucumbers and carrots would be the easiest.
- Eat a salad with dinner every day. We buy the prewashed organic mixed greens. While I’m precutting my snack bags I will also prepare the extras for the salads (i.e. tomato, cucumber, cheese wedges, celery).
- This week I will buy and prepare some more “exotic” veggies (I’m thinking bok choy, artichokes, okra or kale).
- I love noodle soup. This week I will cut and add at least 1 cup of veggies to my soup.
I need to make this positive change. If you have any further suggestions to help me eat more vegetables, please feel free to comment. I would like to know how you ensure you are eating enough vegetables every day. In the meantime, I would like to wish you a wonderful week.
I eat a ton of sauteed veggies, and I also enjoy adding vegetables to anything I may make. Including casseroles, soups, and etc. Dipping raw veggies in ranch dressing is so yummy.
Or you could just buy one of those V8 drinks and get more veggies that day.
