It’s Sunday, Day 7 of the 21 day Fitness Challenge. It’s an easy nutrition assignment to prepare you for the week ahead.

Day 7: Eat food for your soul

1. Eat 4 cups of vegetables.

Don’t eyeball it. Measure each serving to ensure you hit 4 cups. You can complete this mission in one sitting by eating the world’s largest salad or you can spread it out. For example, you could make a spinach omelette for breakfast, eat a salad for lunch, then enjoy a side of cauliflower with dinner. All vegetables are game. Be creative and colorful. Give your body what it needs. Feed your soul, baby.

@FVR I knew what your weakness would be. Baby steps. You told on yourself because you knew I would know.

It says a lot about what I learned after last year’s challenge that the two nutrition challenges I’ve done so far have been easy for me! Had no problem laying off the carbs for dinner last night and only eating protein and veggies (roasted carrots and sprouts). Today I had a green smoothie for breakfast with 2 cups of kale, a cup of brussel sprouts at lunch and a cup of carrots at dinner. However, I am drinking a beer now. Some things are sacred. 🙂 (Why did I just tell on myself???)

I almost turned into kale. I want Megan to make me breakfast. That omelette sounded dreamy.

I had the worlds largest salad. Two cups of spinach, two cups of watercress and a bunch of other tasty toppings like onions, chickpeas, apples and cheese.

We had a TON of veggies today. We got a day behind but doubled up on the workout and nutrition. All caught up now.
Feeling strong!

After your body ride yesterday and Chris/Ingrid/Alex’s bootcamp today I’m exhausted! And ravenously ate the largest salad of my life. Pretty sure I bought Whole Foods out of lettuce.

Done. Good day for the farmers market next door! Got lots of fresh veggies and made a frittata for dinner
