Just a few lyrics from an old Disney attraction.
Seriously though, I am going to discuss fruits and veggies today. Why? Well..why not?
I've been on a health kick since Sean deployed. Partly because I want to take better care of myself and partly just because I want to look smokin' hot.
Part of that of course is dependent on exercise, but the other part is my eating habits. I've never really had an aversion to fruits or vegetables, so that makes it a lot easier for me. However, I get bored just eating things like carrot sticks and tomatoes so I have to mix it up a bit.
My favorite way to get some fruit and veggies in my diet is a Green Monster. I first heard about them from Megan and I couldn't wait to try it myself. Basically the way I make mine is to add a whole banana, a whole kiwi, sliced with skin on, skim milk, a big handful of spinach leaves, some vanilla yogurt and strawberries if I have them. Blend it all up and there you go. A perfect way to get in some fruits and veggies.
I've also been roasting a lot of my vegetables. Carrots roasted with olive oil and sprinkled with thyme is delish. Did you know carrots taste sweet after they've been roasted? It's true. Today I roasted some asparagus with olive oil, kosher salt, fresh ground pepper and a sprinkle of garlic salt. Heavnely!
Do you guys have any veggie or fruit dishes you'd like to share? I'd love to hear them!
