Briefly, I wanted to say that I ate 6 servings of veggies today, but only one of fruit. I really haven't had much of an appetite, so I didn't snack at all today. But I had a BIG salad for dinner. I measured it out (a serving of veggies is generally half a cup) and it was 4 servings! In all fairness, I barely made it to the bottom of the bowl because it was a ton of food. My salad had the afore mentioned mache, along with frisee and radicchio, plus shredded carrots, tomato, corn, and garbanzo beans. I topped it with a simple salad dressing (2 T olive oil, 2 T brown rice vinegar, 1/2 tsp mustard powder and salt and pepper to taste) and some slices of turkey sausage. It was definitely tasty (and very much like the salads I love in Switzerland), but in the future I'm going to try not to eat 4 servings of veggies at once. Volume-wise, it is difficult.
My darling fiance is using my resolution as an excuse to push the spirulina powder that he swears is good for me. I think it smells vaguely like a fish tank, but will occasionally add it to a smoothie, especially a green monster, which is green anyway, and masks the taste. However, I may take him up on it, at least every now and then. There are claims on the net that it counts for up to 10 servings of veggies, but if I eat it, I will count it as 1 serving.
