Not the best week for me, I'll admit. While I did eat plenty of vegetables for the food challenge, I also ate more of everything else, too. I had to be at the hospital for clinials three days during the week, meaning three days of not being able to drink enough water, and three days of being on my feet all day and then too tired to exercise in the evening.
But vegetables? I can eat vegetables, or at least I can now. As a child you couldn't get me to even stick out my tongue and taste anything green. As a teen, I choked down a small portion of green beans to make my mom happy, and nothing more. It wasn't until my 20's that I developed an appreciation for our leafy green friends, eating them in stir-fry, salads and munching on carrots in-between meals.
One of my new favorites? Grilled zucchini - slice it in half long-wise, drizzle on olive oil, salt, and pepper, and grill for 8 or 9 minutes. Yum.
So how was your week?
