Something about the whole 5-a-day thing has always confused me a little. I understand the importance of eating fruits and vegetables, of course, but what I don't understand is, why is it so hard for so many people?
I had at least 5 produce servings just in my dinner tonight!
Avocado, mayo, and sprouts on toasted wholegrain bread, roasted asparagus, and Terra Chips.
And a post-dinner baking project resulted in one heck of a fabulous dessert:
Honey & Goat Cheese-Filled Fig Muffins are TO DIE FOR. (I did sub Neufchatel for the goat cheese, as I wanted a little leftover for my bagel tomorrow morning . . . !!) I practically inhaled this muffin warm from the oven, and I can't wait to try them chilled for breakfasts or snacks. A tad sweeter than the average muffin, these definitely walk the dessert line, but are still 100% whole grain (and pretty high in protein, for a muffin,) so they would still make a decent breakfast. What is it about figs that makes things seem a bit more decadent? I'll probably never understand. But I'll keep eating these muffins, in the hopes of figuring it out. ;)
