Vegetables and fruits and whole grains, oh my!

I suspect that eating healthily is starting to make me grumpy. If I’m eating the same things over and over again, bordom sets in. With eating 4 fruits and 4 servings of vegetables every day, there are only so many times I can tolerate a steady diet of apples and celery. And so I’ve been trying to become more creative with varying my food.

This morning, for instance, I combined my fibre goal and my fruit goal by eating a (light) peanut butter and banana sandwhich on whole grain flax seed bread.

A couple of nights ago, I was trying to figure out what to do with a container of baby spinach that I hade bought over the weekend. A salad would be easiest, but frankly, I’m tired of salad. That’s when I stumbled on this sautéed spinach and garlic recipe on Simply Recipes. I’ve eaten variations of this before, and the recipe was a good reminder. The sautéed spinach was so good that I didn’t even bother added salt to the dish. Didn’t bother taking photos either, as my spinach looked just like the ones on the website. I think I’ll have to buy more spinach soon….
