Foodie Friday: Eat 2 Pounds of Veggies and Fruit Daily

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.  If you would like to learn how to eat up to 2 pounds of veggies in your day, use the contact form below to message.  I will sit down with you, through email, for a free meet and greet.
