Now most of this statement should be veggies, a multitude of colors, and just a little bit of fruit. Fruit is higher in sugars, and though still a very good option, limiting sugars, even from fruit is a good thing. You should also try to make most of your veggies be the raw variety. Unless I am eating a salad, I like mine lightly steamed, or lightly sauteed. Leafy greens are obviously going to give you the most bang for your buck, but eating a variety of colored veggies is best. When you look at the pic below you will see I have no greens in that pan. That is because I only had frozen spinach on hand, for smoothies, and I didn’t want to wait for it to cook. I had already put a small baked potato in the instant pot, so I just wanted quick sauteed veggies. Onions, yellow squash, white button mushrooms, and sweet corn. I cook them in just a little bit of EVOO and then at the end add some Raspberry Vinaigrette for both sweet and tangy seasoning. Put it all on top of the baked potato, and voila a pound of veggies right there. Mushrooms are not technically a veggie. They are a fungus. I still have dinner to get in the other pound in the form of a veggie salad. I am not successful at this every day. I can easily get in a pound, or even pound and a half, but two pounds can be tricky, at least for me.
