My produce-eating efforts



So a few days ago I was really inspired to eat some healthy, fresh fruit and vegetables. This doesn't come naturally for me. BUT, if I have them on hand, I will eat them. So I popped the kids in the car and off we went to the nearest produce stand. The picture above is what we ended up with.

I then promptly whipped up this healthy salad for lunch. I used a black bean Gardenburger to finish it off. While this looks beautiful and while it was very nutritious, it was really NOT my cup of tea. But it's an effort, right? The next day I made a similar salad and finished it off with a couple of meatballs. Much better!


I am pleased to say I've polished off most of the fruit, and some of the veggies...but I still have the eggplant and half of the asparagus and carrots sitting in my fridge calling my name.
