Fruits and veggies
This morning for breakfast I had toast and an orange! I am trying to incorporate more fresh veggies and fruits into our diets around here. The other day when I went shopping bought a bunch of fruits and I have them sitting out on the counter in a cute basket to help remind me and the little ones to grab that as a nice snack instead of the other junk that we tend to eat!! They love fruit so they are happy,, now the goal is to get those veggies in. I have been trying to have more cooked veggies with our dinner,, hubby always turns up his nose, but he does get a little and eat it, just so the kids cant say that daddy didn't have any so why do they have to. I really don't mind cooked veggies. I like them! This is just one step along the way towards a healthier lifestyle. I've been talking to the kids about getting 5 servings of fruits/veggies in each day, and we are making that our goal. Its kinda hard when you never used to really think about it, but if you have one with each meal, then some snacks its not to bad. Have a great healthy day!
