Fortunately, I love veggies. Not as much as chips and pizza but I do like them. I've known many who just won't eat them. At all.
My friends husband won't let anything green pass his lips unless it's lime sherbet. Ugh, sorry, that doesn't count.
So while I do love fruits and veggies, I know that it would be easier and better for me to eat more of them. My snacks are usually a granola bar of some sort, sometimes yogurt. My goal is to snack on more veggies.
Fortunately my KIDS enjoy veggies too!
For the longest time, I would cut broccoli, carrots, cucumbers and celery and just leave them on a plate in the kitchen for the afternoon. My kids are homeschooled so are home all day with me. They are constantly hungry and asking for snacks. By leaving this plate out, they munch on healthy snacks and aren't constantly bugging me about wanting to eat crackers all afternoon.
I used to do this several times a week. For some reason, I got out of the habit and stopped for the last couple of months. I still have the fruit basket on the counter with apples, bananas, oranges and whatever else is in season, but not as much the veggies.
Needless to say, the kids are driving me crazy asking me to eat constantly and I'm ending up throwing away veggies that don't get eaten in the frig. What the heck? That's stupid!
So, starting tomorrow, I'm going back to the veggie tray on the counter. It's going to be SO much better for the whole family, I know it will! Hopefully I will stop my habit of eating granola bars for snack too!
Are you getting your fruits and veggies?
