It's super easy for me to add in 2 fruits. Usually one with breakfast and maybe a handful of raisins for a snack. Veggies? Not so easy. I get MAYBE one in a day. Perhaps better planning and a veggie nazi (ie: roommate) might help me be more successful with that. Because 2-3 veggies a day are going to be a constant once we get into the next phase, so I have to get it down!
I thought oatmeal was going to be my big problem but I actually prefer savory oatmeal to sweet. Just a bit of salt and maybe some cheese and my brain thinks its grits. Yum! I'm still fiddling with the granola idea. I keep burning it. I tried just pouring a little milk over raw oats with some honey. Texture wasn't horrible, kind of like eating soggy cereal.
Remember I was so excited about my smoothie packets? Turns out, I don't really like smoothies. That or I can't get the texture right. It should be like drinking a milkshake but still the thick texture makes me gag. When I have some time to play around with it I'm thinking about blending one and freezing it like frozen yogurt. Or maybe keeping the packets in the fridge so they're cold but not difficult to blend like they are straight out of the freezer.
We're going to add in an extra week of the jump start plan so we can do a full week together before moving into the next phase. Oh, and we're gonna buy a scale. Yay progress!
