So what does nine cups of veggies look like?

Today was my first day of following Dr. Terry Wahl’s dictum to eat nine cups of veggies. Here’s how I got them in:

Breakfast: two eggs, one cup of coconut oil roasted broccoli, one cup of cherry tomatoes, a quarter cup of parsley for garnish, half an avocado, and blue cheese for yum

Snack: a handful of cashews, coffee with cream

Lunch: three cups of salad greens, two cups of coconut oil roasted broccoli, a can of tuna, half an avocado, goat feta for delightfulness, and chili sauce to bring the flava

Snack: one cup of blackberries, Christmas chocolate, unsweetened green tea soda

Dinner: one cup of coconut oil roasted red cabbage, bacon, two cups of tomatoes, and a potato

Final tally: eleven cups of veggie goodness! and a partridge in a pear tree!

Verdict: totally doable, totally delicious.

Now that my brain is cooperating with me, I can’t help but think of all the ways I can make this work. Three cups of kale dehydrated into scrumptious kale chips will not be a chore to eat. Three cups of spinach is a few tiny mouthfuls when cooked. Roasted broccoli and I are getting married. Three cups of carrots and celery is just a glass full when juiced. This is possible. I like it.
