Eat your vegetables!

I am enjoying a brief 10 7 day vacation from school and work.  It is heaven...although heaven would be laying on a beach in Mexico away from computers, dirty dishes, and bills and eating calorie free foods. That's heaven...this is a pleasant and welcome change of events.  School, (I'm getting a 2nd degree to become a registered dietitian), working, blogging, and being a wife is hard work!  I don't know how you mommies do it!

Since I'm off and Kyle has taken vacation time too we are going to be off our normal routine for a while and enjoying more treats and dinners out.

I went to the store today to pick up a few snacks...and stopped in the produce aisle...I stopped and thought.  It's going to be a few days before we really break out of our typical schedule.  But our house is void of veggies and did I want to spend money and things that might not get eaten?

Yes!  Yes, yes, yes!  If there's anything I've learned from my beginning nutrition classes it is the AMAZING importance of VEGETABLES!
Fruits and vegetables are so important to you body and how it functions. You need them on a daily basis.  Not only that, but the phytochemicals in these brightly colored nibbles can fight free radicals and help fight type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, aging, dementia, some types of cancer, and on and on and on.

Find a way to incorporate fruits and veggies into your diet everyday.  Experiment with new foods and ways of cooking. Try organic.  Try them raw.  Just eat them!

I left Target today with spinach, snow peas, apples, and tomatoes.  Just enough to keep us healthy!

Even a V8 is a great veggie boost!  Try it!

How many servings of veggies are you eating a day?

Love and vitamins,
Carissa & Kyle
