I HATE vegetables.
Why do vegetables taste so gross? I need to start eating them but I want to gag when my dad puts a bowl of mushrooms or collard greens on the table for dinner (to name a few).
Luckily I do tolerate a few vegetables. Spinach, carrots, potatoes, corn and artichokes. Any other veggie is a no go…
If you’re a picky eater like myself, have no fear.
V8 Splash Berry Blend is AMAZING! I love it so much I started chugging a bottle down in two days. My mom stopped buying it because I was jacking up the food bill. The next time it goes BOGO at Publix I’m buying 8 of them.
Another good substitute for a veggie lacked diet is vitamins. I take Gummy Vites. I think they make them for little kids but whatever. They taste exactly like Harbo gummy bears. I have to force myself not to eat handfulls of them.
Ensure and Instant Breakfast are both good as well. I like Instant Breakfast a little better because it doesn’t have a chalky taste that Ensure has.
If I continuously incorporate these supplements, along with the three vegetables I am willing to add to my diet, I think I’m good to go.
95% of what I eat from now on is whole milk, bread, eggs, tea, yogurt, fruits, vegetables, protein shakes, rice, chicken, pasta, fish and peanut butter. Oh and did I mention Reece’s, Snickers, chocolate chip cookies, pizza, corn dogs, cookie crisp and Twinkies.
Eating properly is harder than I thought. It’s taken me about two years of living on my own to realize that but I do now. I function so much easier when I eat all my nutrients.
Fast food is so good but so bad for you. I get cravings for Chik-fil-A, Arby’s and Wendy’s all the time. Chik-fil-A’s peppermint milkshakes are way too good. I have dreams about them.
Not that I’m trying to watch my figure or anything. I’m dying to put on twenty pounds. Fast-food would be the easy way to obtain my goal but those foods are packed with chemicals and preservatives. I don’t want to reach my goal and have diabetes or a clogged artery on the side.
Okay, maybe that was a little extreme but you get what I'm saying. My parents RARELY let me eat junk food growing up for a reason.
The more I eat healthy foods, the more I'll start to enjoy them? Wishful thinking lol
I wish you all a healthy lifestyle as we start 2012!
I wish I was as enthusiastic about embracing and eating apples as she is...
