I really don't eat a lot of meat, except for chicken and pork, some beef. I really need to add more veggies to my diet and less red meat even though I'm anemic. Iron supplements don't do my tummy any good. How do I increase my fruit and veggie intake when I've been very bad at eating them. Heck I can't really do dairy anymore except for ice cream and cheese and that's only sometimes as I'm lactose intolerant and am sans gallbladder.
I discovered a really nice dish, bi bim bap at a local Korean place. Very little meat, but choc full of bean sprouts, pickled radishes, and lots of other veggies over rice. When I say very little meat, I really mean very little. You really have to look to find it once everything is mixed up. Of course the side of kim chee is a bonus.
I really want to eat more veggies, fruits, etc. Any ideas? Honestly I feel like I'm having to re-train myself to eat the way your taught in school, remember the food pyramid? Lots of fruits, veggies, grains, moderate to little meat, low fat, low or no salt. I also need to figure out how to eat a salad without lots of creamy dressing on it for the same reason I have trouble with milk and fatty foods.
Tweety, thanks to you I definately would love to support my local farmers where you actually can go see where you get your groceries from. I love the farmer's market and the by local concept. I just wish we could go back to honoring where your food came from.
