In a stroke of absolute genius, Weight Watchers has made all fruits and vegetables "point free." That's Z-E-R-O points for broccoli, mushrooms, onions, peppers, brussels sprouts, tomato, zucchini, asparagus, summer squash, winter squash, spaghetti squash, string beans, cauliflower....and the list goes on.
I am quite certain that no one ever got obese from eating too much spinach. And I also have believed for quite some time now that you really have to EAT in order to lose weight. You have to eat those vegetables, the dark greens, the leafies, to get your body functioning at it's happiest.
What fascinates me is that when I am eating healthy, I LOVE the food. I mean, it's GOOD. It tastes awesome. I PREFER it! When I'm eating junky it's pretty gross, doesn't taste all that great, and makes me feel like crap. So why on earth would I do that on purpose? Well, there's a million reasons and I'll save all that for other upcoming posts.
This morning I want to just stay with the joy that I am finding in my vegetables. That includes shopping for them (love the produce section of Whole Foods!), finding recipes for them, enjoying the colors, the textures, the aromas and of course, the flavors.
And in the mornings, they are so much more interesting than stupid donuts!
