Recently, I've switched from having oatmeal with a banana every morning for breakfast to making a smoothie. The oatmeal helps me stay full, but the smoothie does a pretty good job of holding me over, plus, I can sneak in a few extra fruit and veggie servings first thing in the morning.
I've been adding a handfull of spinach to my usual mix of half a banana, half a cup of plain, non-fat yogurt, some fruit (pineapple, berries, whatever we've got) and a splash of juice. I also put a teaspoon of olive oil in, to help meet the daily oils requirement for WW.
Yesterday I had the mix of fruit-to-veg just right, and I couldn't even taste the spinach. This morning, I about doubled the amout of spinach, and it was like drinking a salad. A little bit funny tasting, but not as bad as one might think.
I like getting an extra veg serving in first thing in the day. I love fruit, and have no problem getting several servings in, but veggies? Not as much. I usually have a serving of vegetables with lunch and one or two more with dinner. Sometimes I snack on carrots, but that's not the norm. I definitely need to up my veg intake, and I'm looking for some new ways to do it.
How do you get veggies in to your daily diet? Do you add them to your smoothies? Any ideas for me about what else I could be putting in there? I've also thought about adding pumpkin to my oatmeal in the fall. Have you tried that?
