The great nacho FACE-OFF!

Breakfast (at 3pm) today was a scramble with 5.5 servings of vegetables (spinach, mushrooms, peppers, garlic, tomatoes with toast. Yup, I was pretty full afterward. 

While at the grocery store I got a pretty dope idea for dinner that could incorporate a bunch of vegetables and still feel kind of like junk food if you want it to. The photo has probably given it away by now: NACHOS! 

Brucifer defnitely didn't protest, and it was clear we'd do our our own versions: his with ground beef, japalenos, sundried tomatoes and cheddar on a base of Spicy Nacho Doritos and mine on organic blue Que Pasa chips with green peppers, jalapenos, chopped tomatoes, spinach, kalamata olives, mushrooms, and daiya cheese. This meal allowed me to consume 3 servings (or 1.5 c) of delightful vegetables. 

Daily total: 8.5 servings of vegetables!

Which plate o' nachos would you rather eat? It's okay... I won't be offended if you pick Brucifer's.
