I almost forgot about veggies

Post by NewLifeScience » Mon Dec 28, 2020 4:33 pm

I have been fasting and taking all these supplements and this summer i felt and looked so vital.. but once the sun toned colour left, i think i feel i am a bit pallid or something.

I have been running and working out and now have remembered to have my bright veggies, peppers, broccoli, carrots... etc.

I think soups and stews are due as well.

I agree it can be distracting... fasting, all these supplements and maybe we are skipping suppers, which can often be the most vitamin-loaded meal of the day.

I have my bags of frozen "asian veggies" which normally would go great in a stir-fry. I heat up a small bowl of veggies in the microwave on days i am not eating... they represent so few calories but good vitamins, fiber, etc.

A good way to fill in the gaps around intermittent fasting.
I do the same with broccoli and other veggies.

Good point!

All these supplements are amazing, but we still need our veggies.

Even on fast days I try to have a few pieces of bell pepper.

I think i have been fasting as a way to keep the 25 pounds I lost off. But if I keep running on my treadmill and using my bowflex and punching and kicking bag - i should be able to reduce the fasting to a few meals per week.

Bell peppers are my go to, as well as green peas and broccoli. I will try to get carrots back in as well.
