People have a lot of different problems with their diet.
Eating enough fruit has never been a problem for me. I know how to eat fruit.
But I am terrible vegetable-eater.
I don’t know what to eat them with. I don’t know how to make them.
I hate it because vegetables are so good for my body. I try to eat pretty well but I am consistently fail at eating enough vegetables.
I decided that I have made more than enough excuses.
How am I going to eat more vegetables?
I am going to stop leaving it to chance.
Today I sat down and took inventory of everything in the kitchen and made a sweet spreadsheet.
What I learned from the spreadsheet:
- I NEED MORE FRUIT. What in the world is going on. Only oranges? ACK!
- I have ingredients for lots of different meals!
From the spreadsheet, I made a tentative menu for this week.
Why a menu?
- I definitely have a tendency to eat the same thing all the time. Variety is the spice of life (even if it isn’t spontaneous).
- I won’t be scrambling at the last minute. I know what I need for the week and what recipes I am going to use (and where they are).
Hopefully menu-planning will take a lot of the guess work out of eating my vegetables! No more excuses!
Do you plan your meals out or are you more spontaneous?
