I couldn't find your post. Sorry.
This seems to be working for me. Fruit with breakfast, lunch and dinner. Vegetable for snack, lunch and dinner.
The veggies are a lot harder for me than the fruits. I usually have a fruit for breakfast and a mid-morning or afternoon snack and that usually meets my 2 cup requirement. But I have to cram veggies in my mouth pretty much from lunch on to hit the 2 1/2 cups required for my calorie range. I put tons of spinach on sandwiches, eat lots of carrot sticks and try to have at least a cup of mixed veggies at dinner. I'm looking forward to summer when I can plant and eat fresh veggies from my garden. Maybe then it won't seem like such a chore.
I'm eating a fruit with breakfast, a fruit and veggie with lunch, and a veggie and salad with dinner.
I have a much harder time with the vegetables! And I agree Sue, I can hardly wait until summer. I have an order of heirloom tomatoes that I'm gonna put in the ground (along with other things). I just bought a bunch of "good for you salad", which my husband intensely dislikes...oh well, all the more for me.
I've been making an egg white scramble every morning and I add any frozen veggie I have on hand. (6 egg whites, a little salt, and a few shakes of dehydrated onion.) Lately it's been peas. And lots of 'em. They taste so yummy to me with my two slices of turkey bacon and a grapefruit. By the time I am done with breakfast I am so FULL! Oh, I can't wait for the morning so I can eat it again. It also helps me to leave out a bowl of carrot sticks all day long...then when I need to munch on something, they are just sitting there staring at me.
