Veggie Challenged

I love fruit. I could eat grapes, strawberries, watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew and whatever else all day long. Though that’s probably not the best idea.

My biggest challenge is getting enough vegetables. It’s not that I don’t like them … I just don’t eat them. I can eat a Ziploc bag full of carrots, but then come across one that’s not so tasty and never want them again.

I hate celery. It tastes like watery dirt.

Tomatoes are delicious, but those are really fruit, right? Also, hello, acid reflux.

Broccoli is good, but in moderation. And even then, I prefer to dip it in ranch dressing. There goes the health value.

One can only eat so many salads. I’m not a rabbit, for goodness sake!

Chris makes this amazing relish that he puts on our salads. I don’t know exactly what’s in it, because it’s a secret, but it has carrots, cauliflower, onion and vegetables from a giardiniera mix, all blended into big bits. Does it meet my daily value for vegetables? Probably not.

Now he’s talking about getting a Nutri Ninja. I’m skeptical that it’s any different from the Ninja we already have, but he’s sold. Is that the best way to get your veggies? To turn them into juice/smoothies?

How do you make sure you get all your veggies in?
