Five a Day? I’ve Got This Thing In The Bag!

So, I now know from all your comments that I’m not a total weirdo for liking almond milk straight up, but now there is a new question: Am I the only one that can eat her weight in fruits and veggies over the course of a day?? Below we have the day’s eats:


6:00am: 1/2 a PB Chocolate Chip Larabar for my pre-work out snack


First time trying this flavor. Not really a fan. I think it reminds me of an old protein shake I used to drink all the time that I got sick of. 🙁


8:30am: Veggie Omelet, Yogurt Fruit Salad, and a steamy cup of "H" Joe!


Omelet Insides: Mushrooms, sweet peppers, onion, tomatoes, spinach, nooch
Omelet Outsides: Salsa and avocado

Yogurt Fruit Salad: 1/2 cup 0% Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup blackberries, 1/4 cup raspberries, and 1 mandarin orange, sprinkled with unsweetened coconut shreds and cha-cha-chia seeds! 😉


12:30pm: Veggie Burger Topped Salad


Bowl ‘O Salad: Spinach, mushrooms, mini sweet peppers, pea sprouts, carrots, red onion, Sunshine BBQ burger (crumbled), bread ‘n buttah pickles (my fave), and avocado.


5:00pm: Honeycrisp apple & 1/2 pack of PB

8:30pm: Antipasta on a bed of Spinach


Antipasta: Sauteed eggplant, onion, sweet pepper, artichoke hearts, and tomatoes
Toppings: Parmesan cheese, pine nuts, capers, and chopped fresh basil

Right after I inhaled this bowl of goodness, I ate the rest of the 1/2 of kabocha squash (not pictured) that I got over the weekend! No more kabocha! Sad day! 🙁

Funny, it looks like I’m a vegetarian doesn’t it? This is actually a typical day of eats for me only bump up the veggie cravings by like 10! I just can’t seem to get my fill this week! I’m already 2/3’s of the way through the 3 pound container of spinach that I bought on Saturday!

At this rate, I may wake up in the morning to find I have leaves instead of hands and roots for legs! Hmm, hope I don’t end up green! Wow, I just imagined myself as a human vegetable and the first thing I’m concerned with is my complexion?! Lol!

How do you do on getting in your fruits and veggies? Are you a bit of an “overachiever” like me or do you struggle to get your 5 a day?
