Courtney's Summer Challenge: Week 2

A veggie per meal is Courtney's challenge to you.

Courtney's Summer Challenge takes on week 2! Your challenge this week: Eat a vegetable with each meal.

Courtney wants to see you incorporate one vegetable into each of your meals this week. Just one teensy, weensy, harmless little vegetable. She recognizes that this may not be easy for some, but the rewards are plentiful for all. Vegetables offer more satiety, meaning you'll feel fuller for longer and less likely to make a hungry dash to the snacks.

Week 2 Prize: DIR T-Shirt and Free Wholly Guacamole

Participate in the challenge by posting below. It could be your progress, success, hurdles, or even encouragement for other participants. We'll draw one winner to receive a shirt and some tasty guac, announced week 3.

So glad I started getting my veggie/fruit basket from Farmers Market Baskets !(Atlanta area) I LOVE to saute veggies with my egg whites in the morning. No problems with that. Veggies Rock!

Anyone else finding it hard to eat veggies for breakfast? I'm an oatmeal girl--most days. I love having veggies at lunch & dinner, though. Like Traci commented already, though, I sometimes struggle with the slicing & dicing process once I get my veggies home from the store. Would love tips on cutting hard squash like spaghetti squash & butternut squash. I love eating them, but find it really hard to cut them.

We'll it's Friday and I have managed to add veggies to almost every meal. I found spinach and green peppers 2 of the easiest veggies to put in different dishes. Tonight we are having Chicken breast with a side of Brown rice. We're throwing in some spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes, and a bit of onion and garlic to the rice. :) Yummy!

Last night we grilled turkey burgers and loaded the bun with avocado, roma tomatoes, and a handful of fresh spinach leaves. For breakfast today I added spinach and mushrooms to my scrambled eggs, then wrapped in a whole grain tortilla.

Courtney, I know its not veggies but I have been incorporating fruit into my diet. It may sound trivial but I have been neglecting a major source of nutritional goodness for over 25 years!

YUM, veggies don't seem to be a problem for me! For a while I was making a salad with either lunch or dinner everyday. And I want to incorporate make your own salad night at my house to use up leftovers around here too! GREAT challenge! Thanks Courtney!!!

I'm so excited to find Courtney's Summer Challenge! This is exactly what I need to get me motivated and back on track this summer. I had lost 100 pounds and was at my goal. Then in January, 2011, I broke my wrist during a boot-camp gym workout. A series of surgeries, many casts, and slow recovery discouraged me and resulted in my gaining back 25 of those hard-to-lose pounds. I need to get back on track and return to the healthy, fit person I became during my weight loss journey. I believe this site will help me.

I have been successfully doing this weeks challenge for 3 weeks. The biggest key for me is to bring home all of those beautiful, colorful veggies and sit down immediately to cut them up and have them ready to go in the frig. We make it a family event. We all put the groceries away and then pull out the knives and cutting boards and get started. Makes getting the veggies in so much easier and doable. And, please, make the scramble that Courtney described in the video. That's been a staple of ours most mornings and it is TRULY delicious!!!! Seeing the change in our children and seeing them grab and apple instead of a pop tart makes this Mom shed tears. <3 Thanks, Courtney!! Good luck everyone - B.E.L.I.E.V.E in yourself - you can do this!!

I love love LOVE veggies! Last night I made a delicious Asian stir-fry and it was delicious!!! This morning I made mini fritatas with egg whites, tomatoes, spinach, broccoli, and fat-free cheese. They too were very good.
I went to the farmers market yesterday and loaded up on fresh, locally grown fruits and veggies. I'm really looking forward to this week's challenge!
