Three weeks ago when I started my countdown challenge to summer (and I took up my old New Years Resolutions that I had already cast aside), I decided to make some changes in my daily life. So far I’ve picked some realistic goals, increased my walking speed and looked at some new healthy recipes for the spring. This week my focus is on increasing the amount of vegetables I eat. It’s shocking how easy it is to go through the day with out eating many vegetables. Most days I’ll have 2 with my dinner, salad and a veggie, but some days it’s only one or the other. Eating vegetables is a fast and easy way to make your diet healthier. They help fight cancer and other illnesses by providing our bodies with vitamins, antioxidants and fiber. This week I’m going to make sure I’m eating them with lunches, snacks and dinner. Maybe sneak in some veggies with my scrambled eggs at breakfast. It’s almost asparagus season here in Michigan join me in learning some new ways to cook them.
