I’ve never been a fan of fruit & veg - I’ve tried endlessly to change it & try new things but I just don’t enjoy eating them, and I reeeaally like to enjoy what I eat. Apart from my fussy tastebuds, I’m a big foodie.
I’ve gotten into a rut of quick processed meals (new mom, not much time, guilty as charged) & want to make some quick changes that I can actually stick to.
So I’m thinking if I continue taking a daily multivitamin, which I have done since the day I found out I was pregnant 18 months ago, along with a few other habits I want to implement, like daily fresh orange juice, snaking on nuts more often (albeit roasted or salted nuts most likely), eliminating processed foods... is it possible for this to be a healthy diet, with minimal fruit & veg?
I love potatos, I love pasta/bread - basically all carbs. I love meat; never a doubt I get enough protein. I just do not like (most) fruit & veg. Occasionaly I’ll have a healthy day, like I love tomato soup, and I can tolerate carrots. And one of my favourite dishes to cook is pasta with potato, bacon, broccoli & cheese - yummy. But I imagine if I have those every day just to get my 5 a day in, I’ll be bored pretty quickly.
I guess what I mean is, if the rest of my diet is relatively healthy, and I cut out the sugar & processed rubbish, is a multi vitamin supplement enough?
