I had a lovely lunch with squash and beans and tomatoes. It is nice to enjoy the produce. The peaches I got were also very nice. I have no fruit trees now but have a bumper crop of grapes.

Have never tried wheatgrass juice.

Diane, my son served in your mission area although he never to to PEI. He spent several months on Newfoundland, though. He loved the area.

Having fun with a quiet day. I love the quiet ones. The grands started back to school today so it was peaceful and quiet.

Have a great day.

I have a garden. Some of it is doing well. The lettuce has run its course and is finished now. I just had some cherry tomatoes. So good. I grow quite a few herbs. I had a lot of raspberries this year. The birds had a feast and gave me lots of happy songs in return! LOL

I too am thankful for our local farmers. I try to buy from the ones that farm organic whenever possible.

Does anyone else drink wheatgrass juice.?

I even tried patio gardening in a pot. I'm not the one with the green thumb. It passed over me and went to my children. My sister is good but it just isn't me. I've tried over the years but my heart was never in it.

Have a great day everyone.

growing a vegetable garden in Southern Utah in the desert was nearly impossible, but we did our best. We always ended up spending a fortune on water and compost to try to get the soil in a better condition. I loved harvesting, but it certainly was not worth it.

Veggie smoothies aren't as sweet so they aren't as fun. Fruit ones are so much more a treat. I'm glad you are getting the good foods in.

Good luck tomorrow.

Yesterday I made a fruit and veggie smoothie for breakfast. Three servings of veggies in it! It wasn't my favorite smoothie that I've made, but it wasn't the worst, and my body loves these so much more than when I overindulge in too much junk.

The weekend I had a hard time getting in the veggies. I was busy and didn't stop to prepare meals. Had the same problem today.

But it is nice to have to think about getting in foods.

Had a great tomato, cucumber and fresh mozzarella salad today. Paired it with grilled chicken which was very fun and filling.

Gotta run and get some things done.

Have a great day everyone.

The fresh produce is such a great thing this time of year. I've got a fridge full of fun things to eat. I wish sometimes I could say I'm picking it out of my garden. That hasn't worked well for me, so I've given that up for now.

Have a great day.

Hi. My scriptures are still a regular part of my life. I am thankful for the veggie part of the challenge. Due to it I am becoming mindful of eating at least one veggie per day. So far, so good. Thank you.

Have to admit that I blew my diet yesterday--celebrated my older missionary's half-way mark by taking myself out to lunch.

But--I did throw in some kale, zucchini, and mushrooms into my breakfast smoothies, along with some frozen strawberries and 1/2 a banana. I thought it wasn't too bad, but I like those kinds of smoothies.

Thank you. Good challenge. June and July were hard months for me. I have kept up with my scriptures but the veg challenge is perfect for me at this time!

I have been increasing my vegetables. I have not been eating as many vegetables as I want to but, I will start the last two days have been busy.

Remember that you don't have to start with the beginning of whatever scripture. You don't have to start at the beginning if you are starting now with the scriptures.

I eat meatless several times a week. Had chicken with my veggies the last two days, but tomorrow is a veggie only day. I add beans or something with protein to make sure I am meeting my nutritional needs.

Having fun with this challenge. First thing in the morning feed my mind and soul and the rest of me later.

Have a great day.

Love it. Eating the veggies will be easy. I nearly always get my 5-7 servings of veggies and have cut way back on the fruit. Love fruit, but was eating too much of it and not enough veggies.

For August we want to have some simple challenges that will help us build habits and improve our lives.

This month, the challenge will be

Eat one vegetable per day

Read one scripture per day

Post on the thread. We will also have a place to share those scriptures as we find the ones that move us and help build our testimonies.

It will also be added to the team goals for this month.

Have fun. Looking forward to seeing what you have learned and what I can learn from you.
