My gym membership nutritionist’s coaching plan for this month is to eat 5 fistfuls of vegetables each day.
Tricky topic and I am brave to post about eating foods this month.
The rest does not matter to me.
I feel better when I can reach that goal.
I do not include corn, peas or potatoes as a vegetable, even though they are vegetables, but they have quite a bit of starch in them; that is my choice to include them or not on these fistfuls.
I eat a red/orange/yellow/or green pepper a day in place of an apple;
eating a pepper like an apple is 2 fistfuls.
I eat a fistful of raw celery a day.
I put 2 fistfuls of spinach in my daily protein shake with frozen berries and almond milk…
and then…..drum roll
I am done.
I feel better sneaking in those fistfuls each day and it leaves me less guilty of indulging too much, especially at this season.
Sometimes I get only 3 or 4 fistfuls in. Oh well. I find it still a good practice.
Happy fistfuls and feasting!
