Veggies and Fruit

Well spring is here and that means all the great summer veggies and fruits are just around the corner.  MC could not be any happier about this news.  

At almost two if she has the choice between cookies or broccoli she will choose the broccoli any day of the week, really what child in America or adult for that matter would choose a veggie or a Girl Scout Cookie.  I tell you one thing she did not get it from me or her daddy! 

As I am typing this I kid you not she is eating steamed veggies that I am serving for supper.  No wonder we are in the 5% for weight there are not a whole lot of calories in veggies and fruit.  

Here is a list of some of her favorites to eat: 
  • cherry tomatoes, actually she does not matter the variety, cherries are just super easy to eat
  • carrots
  • broccoli
  • cauliflower
  • corn
  • peas
  • green beans
  • cucumbers
  • spinach salad
  • brussell sprouts
  • bananas
  • apples
  • oranges
  • strawberries
  • grapes
  • peaches
  • kiwis
Okay, I think you get the point!  Here is to the little things in life that keep us laughing, loving and living!
