Another tid bit of information the instructor gave us was that we should be eating about 7-9 servings of fruits/veggies a day. Does that seem like a lot to you? I don’t know what to think because I guess I always just try to have at least one fruit or vegetable as part of whatever I eat. So I guess maybe that is a lot–if you only have one fruit or veggie per time you eat and you eat 4-5 times per day–that doesn’t equal 7-9 servings!
Our instructor, who is the blogger behind Yum Yoga, suggested starting off our mornings with a smoothie because it’s really easy to get at least 3-4 servings of fruit/veggies with a smoothie.
While I think smoothies are the bomb dot com, I usually want something more substantial for breakfast. Like, my obvious favorite breakfast dish–the egg scramble wrap.
Anyway, I thought it would be interesting to keep track of how many servings of fruits/veggies I get in a day. I am a big fan of fruit–not some much of veggies. So, I am going to try to make a conscious effort of having an even number of servings of fruits/veggies.
Looking back at breakfast, I had two servings of veggies (fire roasted peppers and onions and spinach). I also had a serving of fruit (grapes on the way to school–not pictured). That’s 3 servings right there.
Now, moving on to lunch…
Turkey sammie (turkey, spinach, hummus, and honey mustard); grapes; blueberries
One serving of veggies (spinach)
One serving of fruit (grapes)
Another serving of fruit (blueberries)
Lunchtime total of fruits/veggies: 3 (2 veggie; 1 fruit)
Daily total of fruits/veggies: 6 (2 fruit; 1 veggie)
I’m getting close! 🙂
Have a great afternoon! I’m off to finish my summer job schtuff. Due tomorrow at 5:00 pm!
