Yes, this is Mom speaking. Well, not your Mom. But his mom.
But the past many months I have been eating MANY servings of veggies every day.... aiming for EIGHT per day. Yes, eight!! And I feel GREAT!!
How do I get that many per day? Let's break it down.
Breakfast (within an hour of waking): 1/2 smoothie (includes 3 servings of veggies: 1 serving of green powder plus 2 servings of the spinach)
After workout (aka snack): 1/2 the same smoothie as I made for breakfast
Lunch: 2 C Veggie and some meat (example is a huge salad with leftover meat and olive oil and balsamic on it or my favorite, the leftover chicken curry salad with some extra romaine)
Dinner: Meat and 2 C Veggies (example is BBQ salmon, steak, or hamburger with steamed broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, etc.)
Snack: nuts or a hard boiled egg and a cup of veggies (ex: bell pepper or a cucumber with a hard boiled egg or nuts, or maybe carrots or celery dipped in almond butter)
I've also been trying to space the meals/ snacks at 2.5-3.5 hours apart.
