So, I realized part way through the week*  it might not really be that helpful to you if I didn't list my vegetable and fruit consumption in context of my meals and snacks. Often, as you can see, I get lazy and just list the vegetables and amounts, but don't make it appetizing by letting you know HOW I ate them or what that looked like. Am I right? Would you like full disclosure? Do you wanna see the rest of what I eat? Would you like more pics? More recipes? Please let me know. I'll be concentrating more on this blog in the coming weeks.

I want your input on how I can proceed. How can I inspire you to eat more vegetables?!

* This week I was merely recording my intake and not concentrating on it as I sometimes do, thus the high intake at the end of the day ;)
