Wow! I think I may have had over 9 cups of fruits and vegetables today! Much of it was thanks to good smoothie this morning. It was made with salad greens, rhubarb, apples, banana, papaya, and kiwi. It accounted for 4 cups of my goal.
Lunch was a chicken thigh with fresh green beans and carrots with a bit of hummus. For dinner I had the remainder of my leftover walleye and vegetable stir-fry. I was still hungry so I had a chicken thigh too. Dessert was berries with banana and plain yogurt.
All were quite tasty. I was in need of chocolate today too, so two organic mint chocolate patties with honey filling. It doesn’t get much better than that!
Tomorrow begins a different aspect of the challenge. I’ll be traveling for work with a group for the next few days. Eating group meals is challenging. It seems our society doesn’t value fruits and vegetables too much. There is often iceberg lettuce with minimal nutritional value, overcooked something or other which just isn’t appealing, and white potatoes which I’m allergic to. But, it’s just a few days and I’ll be able to find something. It may not be nine cups of organic goodness, but it will be something and it will be good.
