So today is the two-week mark of the Veg Pledge Challenge! Here’s a little recap of how I’ve been fairing so far. And by little, I mean ridiculously long.
This challenge was all about stepping out of my comfort zone and starting a new routine!
Another area that needed a little veggie love was in the snack department Typical snacks for me have always been bananas, clementines, cheddar crackers, 1/2 peanut butter + jelly sandwiches, edamame, and greek yogurt with granola. Though they’re all great choices, I wanted to find a way to incorporate more vegetables into my snacking routine.
Veggie chips and puffs, steam-able frozen veggies, homemade kale chips, and baked zucchini cups replaced the sandwiches and crackers I had previously been snacking on. Lately I’ve had a major craving for bell pepper slices and hummus lately so I think those will be my next snacking obsession. Ooh! And I’ve still been snacking on edamame sprinkled with cayenne pepper + sea salt… just not as often as before. I’m a big believer in moderation and, frankly, I was getting a little out of hand with the edamame!
I love my veggies but sometimes you’ve got to break-up and date around a bit. How else would the other veggies get any action?
