This past weekend, I went to a wellness conference at my church, where we learned all about how eating healthfully affects our bodies. It made me so grateful for the healthy menu plans I put together each week.
The wellness coach who spoke at the conference told us that we need between 9 and 13 servings of fruit and vegetables each day for optimum health. That sounds like so much! But she even admitted that she doesn’t always get in 9 servings, and she does health for a living. That made me feel a little better 🙂
This week, we’re trying out a one of the salmon recipes in Trim Healthy Table, and having a big entree salad, in order to get more healthy fats and greens into our diet. I’m also going to try to eat bigger veggie portions at my meals, in order to up my vegetable servings each day.
Eating more veggies doesn’t have to be hard, especially when you’re a busy mom. One big salad of leafy greens topped with tomatoes, cucumber and beets is several servings of veggies in one meal!
As usual, my menu plan is Trim Healthy Mama-friendly. If you aren’t familiar with Trim Healthy Mama, head over to read all about how I became a Trim Healthy Mama and lost 35 pounds in 7 months.
