Getting In Our Fruits and Veggies

February 22, 2014

One thing that Ryan and I agree on about our “healthy living” challenge is that it has prompted us to eat a LOT more fruits and veggies.  Since we’ve been doing it, we’ve both had a huge smoothie every morning, packed full of fruits AND veggies (as opposed to the smoothies we’d usually make with a fruit or two and maybe some spinach).  This morning, I had one with apple, carrot, spinach, blueberries, pineapple, and raspberries—whoa.  That’s a lot of produce.  But it was delicious!

Lunch and dinner have had a heavy emphasis on produce as well.  Here are some of the meals we’ve enjoyed lately:

Homemade individual vegetable lasagna, plus salad for a Valentine’s Day dinner.  Ryan made the lasagnas, and they were SO good—he used a Giada recipe.  Yum!


Flatbread, topped with hummus, sauteed shrimp and veggies, and chopped up treats from Fresh Market’s olive bar (olives, cheese, roasted garlic, etc.)


Asparagus, tempeh, and cabbage stir-fry.  Served over brown rice.

And, finally, some king cake:

Definitely the most delicious color-filled part of the week. Winking smile 

Have a great weekend!

    I love tempeh. I think because it is easier to cook than tofu in my opinion. Now when I go to Whole Foods and someone else has roasted the tofu for me…score…but my home cooking skills only extend so far. HA! Looks delicious! 🙂

    I am trying to eat more vegetarian during the week without just dipping entire loaves of bread into butter and chomping on that all day. I think I can get on that veggie flatbread kick though. 🙂
