Honestly, while I know I would really enjoy a doughnut (also hard to pass up at Juniors, where they sell Banana Whip in Margate, NJ), or a loaded brownie, or even just a whole wheat chocolate chip cookie straight out of the oven (thanks again, Shir), I find it's not that hard to say no.

While at home, I am big on cutting up a ripe mango, mixing in a few spoonfuls of greek yogurt (full fat, baby), then sprinkling sunflower seeds and maybe a small drizzle of macadamia nut honey on top. That was tonight's dessert. SO good, I could've eaten 3 more bowls. Sadly, I must wait for the other mangoes to ripen.
I've gotten back to my Deceptively Delicious ways as well. I know this cookbook caused quite a stir when it was first released. In my opinion, it's a great way for me to get more vegetables into the foods I eat with my family. I do not deceive my child into thinking there aren't healthy ingredients in his food. However, I ask for his help in the preparations (if I have the patience), and he sees the pureed cauliflower and beets that are required for some of our favorite recipes.

While I still can't see myself going vegan (Sorry, Kris Carr, I like yogurt and feta and sometimes even chicken), I can try to get more veggies into my diet and less crap. Next up: adventures in juicing...
