    I have really been making a concerted effort to incorporate more veggies into my diet. To do so, I've searched for new recipes to help jazz them up so I'm more inclined to keep eating them.

    I thought I would highlight a few of the newer ones I've tried recently. And encourage you to share some of your favorite ways to eat your favorite veggie to give us all new ideas.

    Cauliflower

    From the Very Well Fit site, here are some stats on this veggie.
    Cauliflower is a starchy vegetable, but it's non-starchy, complex kind. It has lots of fiber and low amounts of natural sugar. And it can be a great substitute for other starchy foods like rice.

    I've never been a big fan, to be honest. However, I have found that eating cauliflower rice is an easy way to get in this nutritious vegetable. Rather than make my own cauliflower rice, I buy it pre-packaged. One of my favorites is the Trader Joe's Mexican cauliflower rice. It has a nice kick to it, and it's great as a side for taco night.

    If I'm cutting up a head of cauliflower, this recipe is a family favorite. When I made it last week, my 11 year old daughter even said, "Oh yummy, we're having cauliflower!" Try this recipe for roasted cauliflower that uses curry powder. I'm not a big fan of curry, but love this recipe. So definitely recommend giving it a try!

    Do you have any favorite ways to make/eat cauliflower?

I use frozen riced cauliflower for a sub for rice or mashed potatoes. Love it and roasted too. I’m not a fan of curry either but I’ll try your recipe

  • Okay so I am just getting back from a insanity-fun-fest ski weekend with LOTS of snacks. Cookies, Chex mix, kid snacks, grandma okay-ing pepperoni, more cookies, etc….sheesh it was overwhelming even tho I ate a ton of veggies & beans.

    Anyway, I am starting a sort of refresh tomorrow:

    Breakfast: shakeo + apple + water
    Snack: fiber sweep
    Lunch: vanilla fresh + veggies + hummus
    Snack: cauliflower + hummus
    Supper: vanilla fresh + veggies + hummus/avo

    Bring it on!!!

    Oh yes, and my usual vitamin D, C, and Zinc.

    It was a beautiful relaxing ski weekend & I am excited to get back on track.

    Hope everyone else is doing well!!! Follow me if you need some motivation…I feel like that is so so normal.????❤😊💕

I was skiing this weekend, too. And while I did prep a lot of food for breakfast/lunch/dinner/snacks to help keep on track, I am hitting the ground running today.

Saturday

PSA - if you comment on a Check In post, don’t forget to check your email. I’m still looking for a winner from Wednesday so there will be a delay in making a winner. Just a heads up.

On to the weekend - for this weekend, the target is to get a minimum of 17,000 steps combined between the two days. If you do that, then don’t forget to comment on the Check In post on Monday.

Who plans on crushing the step challenge?

Thank you for these step challenges! 10k scares me since I'm just starting to be active again, so I appreciate you letting us use our personal goals. Last week was 7k, this week I've bumped it up to 8k! :grin:

LizzyBird

Crushed it yesterday!

It’s Friday and we are heading into the weekend.

Make an intention of what you want to accomplish this weekend.

Do you want to forget you’re trying to lose weight? Do you want to start over on Monday?

Or…

Do you want to plan and treat the weekend as if it were a Monday? You’ll find success in long term consistency.

Be mindful.
Plan ahead.
Repeat, “I will do this!”

What’s your plan for the weekend?

I’m going out of town for the weekend on a ski trip. I prepped food to eat while there that will help me stay on point.

Valerie D.

I'm traveling too on Sunday/Monday. Packing my food with me and going to try to make the step challenge (but 6 hrs in the car on Sunday will make it tough! This is a life style change, not a one & done! Monday is just another day; One day at a time!
