Day 3 – Fruits and Veggies

Today I decided to read about the nutrients in different fruits amd vegetables. The website, http://http://www.fruitsandveggiesmorematters.org, is a great website to learn all things fruit and veggies! You really learn the importance of eating from the rainbow. 

Here is my progress on Friday. It was a bit of a challenge to eat healthy at lunch because I had an off-site lunch meeting. And they had dark chocolate raspberry brownies to tempt me… but I resisted the urge 🙂 

 Breakfast: 1 egg + 1 egg white + 1/4 avocado (1/4 fruit) + 1/2 cup diced tomatoes and onions  (1/2 vegetable)

Lunch: 2 cups salad mix (1 vegetable) + 3 oz baked salmon + 1 tsp balsamic vinaigrette + 1/4 cup black bean, corn amd tomato salad (1/4 vegetable)

Dinner: 2 oz grilled salmon, 2 oz grilled top sirloin, 2 cups butter lettuce (1 vegetable) + 1/2 cup diced tomatoes, onion, hearts of palm (1/2 vegetable), 1/4 avocado  (1/4 fruit)

Snacks: 1 cup papaya, mango, pineapple (1 fruit), 1/2 cup blueberries + grapes (1/2 fruit) 

Total: 

Vegetable: 3.25
