In trying to eat a little healthier and drop those last few baby pounds, I've been trying to take a look at what I eat in the day, and in doing so, I noticed a lack of fruits and vegetables during the day, though we always have a good serving of them at dinner. For some reason I'm having a hard time thinking about grabbing an apple or banana or washing some grapes when I need a snack, so I've found a temporary replacement to ensure I'm getting more:
I have an 8-ounce glass of the green stuff in the morning. Every morning I've done so, Gus says, "That green stuff looks nasty!" (He's 2 1/2, don't forget, and now this is the funniest running joke ever.) Hubs agrees. And while it does look a little gross, it tastes really good. There's tons of fruits and veggies in it plus some other good stuff- just don't look at the label if you don't want to know some of the non-traditional ingredients. The blue and the red are a little more color friendly and taste great, too, and I actually do feel like I have more energy during the day.
Now to drink more water.
