I hate admitting this but I have never been a big fan of fruits and vegetables ever since I was a child. I will eat them but I certainly do not get enough of them on a daily basis. 1) because I don't particularly like them and 2) after being banded I find it so difficult to get ALL those servings in plus protein and then fluids. I would have something in my mouth all day long!
The fruits that I once liked are almost impossible for me to eat. I used to be a grape eater and I just can't tolerate them now because of the skin, same with apples. From time to time I will eat peeled apples but not everday. Onto my veggies, I tend to choose the "sweet" veggies like carrots, corn (which I know is starch) and peas - which are the "veggies" that we are told to avoid moreso than broccoli, spinach, cauliflower, green beans, tomatoes etc.
Does anyone else simply not really care for that many fruits and vegetables and if so what is your substitute?
I was wondering if juicing or drinking the Naked Juices would be an option to get more nutrients from the fruit and veggies, I realize as a liquid it's going to go right through vs. eating them but my question is moreso about nutrition rather than fullness.
Does anyone else juice or drink the Naked Juices?
I really need to be better about getting the vitamins and nutrients I should be getting from fruits and vegetables but I already know I will never get them by eating them so I'm looking for an alternative. This my be a question for a nutritionist but I thought I'd reach out here first to get thoughts and feedback!
