    I have decided to take on the Salad a Day Challenge



    with the added condition that I will eat a different salad each day for the 30 days of the challenge.
    I also aim to ensure that I eat a minimum of 30 different vegetables over the course of the month. I will record my vegetables-to-date list here at the bottom of my daily menu posts, as a way to keep track.

    Day 1 of 31 Vegetables to Date: 14

    arugula
    avocado
    bell peppers
    carrots
    chard
    fennel
    garlic
    kale
    leeks
    lentils
    lettuce
    onions
    spinach
    tomato

    (Possibly there were some additional leafy greens in the mixed greens, but we'll go with this list for now.)

    This was a pretty good day in terms of eating a variety of different veggies, and I'm off to a good start with my list for the month. But getting the first half of the 30 is always going to be easy. The challenge lies in fleshing out the back end of the list--but I think it should be doable.

    My Heroic Year of following Canada's Food Guide and DAREBEE's Modern Hero Mealplan has commenced.
