One of the best gifts I was ever given was a chest freezer. I cannot have any fruit or vegetable that has skin or seeds so what I could eat was severely limited. But I have learned to make a mean smoothie and keep my freezer loaded with frozen fruit and vegetables. If I can't put it on a plate and eat it I can stick it into my nutribullet. I have no worries about getting my daily quota one way or the other.

"Be ready at all times" is the most important point for me.

Every weekend, I make a vegetable-based soup in the slow cooker, then put it into pint-sized mason jars. I freeze some, and refrigerate some - that way they are all portioned and ready to eat - easy to take to work for lunch, to warm up as part of a quick supper, or even as a hot breakfast sometimes. It's been helping me up my veggie intake quite a bit - and painlessly!

This is a work in progress for me. Winter soups will help me up my intake. I love the fruit and veggies - no problem there. It is just our family budget....One thing I have initiated recently is having a veggie with a light dip recipe we have at my lunch time. Always have 1 fruit a day at least, but it is harder to get to the Freggie suggestion.

This reminded me how much I love shredded carrots on sandwiches! I don't do well with raw carrots unless they're shredded. No matter how much I chew, I still feel like they're stuck in the middle of my chest!
