Hmm. I tried to do an automatic-post thingie, but I guess I didn’t do a good job of it since it didn’t automatically post. Looks like I need some more practice with wordpress (obviously).
This “challenge” isn’t very challenging for me; it’s more reminding myself to prioritize eating lots of veggies (the easy part) and fruit (usually not so easy, but the clementine obsession is really well-timed).
This week, I’ve continued eating my Cypriot chickpea stew*, tons (well, 4-5 day) of clementines, and pomegranates. I LOVE pomegranates, but they are messy and time-consuming to eat. However, this week I have also been working on a bright pink knitting project, so I haven’t had to worry about bright pink pomegranate stains. Ha.
If that weren’t enough Vitamin C, I also had a lemon the other day. Hopefully I can effectively ward off the germs and crud I am exposed to at school every day.
Any suggestions of other fruits and veggies I should try? I can’t believe I haven’t had a single Brussels sprout this week!
PS: I have still not made any smoothies! I’m too cold!
*one of my middle school kids saw me carrying in my lunch bag this morning. He asked if he could have it. I told him it was garbanzos and spinach, but I’d be happy to share. He was not impressed.
