I've eaten too many brownies!!!
What a shock....knew I shouldn't have made baked goods with no company around. The O nonnie isn't too fond of chocolate so the ultra fudginess was all mine. Compliant as they were, I'm begining to notice that too much of neutral things makes me feel a little sick....and bloated. Now don't go getting paranoid. 3 potato chips won't hurt us AB's but 1/2 a bag doesn't make me feel good anymore.....even the "Terra Blue" ones.
I have a new challenge for us! As I type this, my counter now reads 4,884 visitors. This is amazing!!! I never though sooooo many people would check out something I wrote. And maybe some of them actually read it......and cared!!! Whooo-hoo! So, since there's about 5,000 of you out there, we need to get together! If not in person, then through group projects.....yeah!!!! Blood Dieter's Unite!!!!
So, my/our first challenge I think needs to be on vegetables. I do not eat enough of them and I'm guessing 99% of you don't either. Sure, it's all of our faults but, there's a lot of factors. Veggies don't always taste good. To some of us, they've NEVER tasted good. They take more time to cook and pre-pare than a frozen chicken burrito. And they go bad really quick! I just salvaged a thing of collard greens earlier tonight! And I'm supposed to be a role model!
"So, Miss BTD Blogger...inspiration to the masses....how many vegetables did you eat before you made collards tonight....."
"None!!! Seize the imposter!!! She is no longer worthy of the cause....banishment to the Ural Mountains......FOREVER!!!"
Fortunately, the diet guards are only in my head. ERFYT & LRFYT are guidelines. The more you follow them, the healthier you'll be. No banishment.
So, it is my goal to actively fix one vegetable dish a day. Hopefully I'll eat more (you know, cucumbers in the sandwhich, ordering the salad at the restaurant instead of potatoes, grabbing a carrot on the go....) But, if I am to REALLY incorportate more bene and neutral veggies in my diet, I must actively fix dishes and NOT LET THEM GO BAD IN THE REFRIDGERATOR!!! This is my new challenge and I challenge anyone reading this to do the same thing. If this is too hard, remember "What About Bob" and use baby steps. Try preparing those veggies every 2 days or every other day. ("Baby steps on the bus, Gil, baby steps...") Or if you've never eaten vegetables in your life (I do know a few of those) try fixing just one dish a week. There's lots of good recipes in Cook Right For Your Type and abundant recipes by doing a google search on-line.
So come.....let us eat more greenery!!! Huzzah for the vegetable!!!!
Please, write me a comment and let me know how you're doing with the vegetables. Trials, tribulations, recipes and ideas. Let me know and we can conquer them together!!!
