During week 3 we will concentrate on getting in as many vegetables as we can. You should continue drinking water and snacking on fruit, but this week it is all about the veggies.
I don’t need to explain why vegetables are good for you. We all know they are. The issue is many of us just don’t enjoy eating them or don’t have time to wash and prep a salad. This week I want you to see how easy it is to put together, not to mention super delicious.

The goal is to have about half your plate full with any vegetable you like.
This includes:
-A large salad
-Spinach
-Cabbage
-Bean Sprouts
-Sauteed zucchini and mushrooms
-Raw or steamed broccoli
-Carrots
-Roasted eggplant
-Any color bell pepper
-Cucumbers
-Cauliflower
-Green beans
-Tomatoes

Really any vegetable. The only thing that does not fall under this category are potatoes. Those are carbs. Feel free to have them, but they are not part of the vegetable group for week 3. Avocado is also super delicious and good for you, but you only need a little in a salad.

Lunch and dinner are the key times to get in your veggies. Or even a veggie filled omelet for breakfast!
In the morning you can also make a green smoothie.
My Super Green Smoothie recipe is a great one to try.

For dinner a great option is my Low Cal/Low Carb Spaghetti made using zucchini. It is AMAZING!
You can also try a simple salad that is easy to put together and tastes delicious using this Maple Vinaigrette.

I will be back with more ideas and recipes to get in those veggies. Right now, just stock your kitchen with loads of veggies and try your best to get them in at least 2 times a day.

You can take pictures of your meals filled with vegetables and post them on the No Way That’s Healthy! Facebook page. I would love to see what you make.

Also remember that I am giving away 4 packages filled with some of my favorite healthy products. To be one of the winners all you have to do is be involved. You can do that by commenting on the blog or facebook, emailing me, or sharing this plan with friends. The more involved the higher chance you have to win!

  1. they sell cherry tomatoes really cheap in our makolet now, so i bought a bunch and snack on them.
    last week i ate some melon and nectarines, but b"H i dont crave sweets as much anymore. more salty snacks…

  2. Hi – I've been drinking lots of water and eating my fruits an veggies. This is great for me since I am realizing how much I enjoy certain fruits and vegetables. On the other hand, I was wondering about oil and mayo. Does it count if I eat my veggies with a mayo or oil based dressing?

  3. Hi Racheli,
    That is great! I suggest using olive oil or even olive oil mayo for salad dressings. Olive oil raw is a great healthy fat and actually helps you get the most from the vegetables. So having a fat with vegetables is perfect. Just try not to overdo it. Thanks for joining!

  4. I really got into this fruit and vegetable business. I've been snacking on grapefruits, pears, apples… Was wondering what happened to Week 4 Stage?
