Could you do this?
I started my day with green juice and sweet potato or spaghetti squash with my poached egg. I had another juice drink (my discovery this week was a pink drink). Lunch was veggie heavy - carrot or squash soup, spaghetti squash with tomatoes and roasted garbanzo beans, a Brussels spouts salad. I picked up some hummus and had veggies for dipping as an afternoon snack. At dinner I loaded up more veggies in the salad and lots of squash side dishes this week. I finished off the week with a homemade pizza - spinach, mushrooms, asparagus, onions, and just a bit of goat cheese. I didn't take out my veggie slicer this week but I am planning to stay on track with the 9-a-day so I think I will need to make some zucchini style noodles to add to the rotation.
So, what do you think? Could you do this? It would be easier for me if I had more fruits but I am also trying to watch my sugar intake so I aimed for 3 fruits and 6+veggies each day. Check Amanda's post on how to get more veggies into your meals.
