When it gets to that time of the year when I go out to one of my favorite grocery stores (Sprouts) and come home with this type of stash, you can rest assured that I am entering into my summer eating pattern. 😊
As much as I love my winter foods (rutabagas, sweet potatoes, squashes, etc.), by this time of the year I am literally craving colorful raw vegetables. Typically, I would have lettuces too, but with the current ‘ban’ on some lettuces I decided to have lettuce-less salad this week. Look at how beautiful and colorful this food is. It’s going to be a wonderful eating week.
I haven’t researched what I am about to say here but I think eating some portion of colorful raw vegetables everyday helps to alleviate or lessen many of the physical problems that plague Americans particularly, i.e. constipation, poor immune system, other digestive issues, allergies, mineral deficiencies, blood pressure issues, cholesterol issues, etc. […again, I’m no doctor or medical professional, so this is strictly my opinion].
I even bought fresh mangos today… I can’t remember the last time I did that; possibly! I never have. 🤔 I’ve had mangos before but never bought fresh ones myself. They were 3 for .$99 today at Sprouts. Those little beauties came right home with me… yes, they did. 😌
I gained 2-3 pounds over the winter months.😞 Hopefully my summer foods will help to melt those couple of extra pounds away. I am not too worried though because I started a new exercise program and I am slightly more muscular than I’ve been in a long time. I will share more about it in an upcoming blog sombe sure to FOLLOW my blog .
Now, go get yourself some veggies!
Happy shopping! 🍎🥦🥒🍎🍉🍒🍏🍑🍐🍇🍍🍊🥕
