I've been eating lunch at work for months now, it's usually good. There is some sort of special every day and there is always an option of a hamburger, hot dog, mashed potatoes with gravy (or not) or simple sandwiches. For example the special today was pork loin & macaroni/cheese and every Monday it's fried chicken, Tues is pizza, Wed varies, etc. It's not bad & not spendy (I have eaten more fried chicken in the last few months than I've had in the last 30 years <g>).
For just about the whole time along with what ever was for lunch I had a "salad bowl" too. Shredded lettuce, tomatoes, onions & whatever I wanted to put on it. Every day.
For the last week or so I'd been going by the salad bar without stopping, today I noticed that I wasn't stopping for salad.
I thought about it, I'd been eating a salad at lunch every day for months and I suddenly stopped...and I didn't notice I'd stopped, what changed?
Then it came to me, I'd been having a small 1 serving can of V8 Juice every morning for "awhile".
I tried it one morning sometime back, it was cold & tasted good. I read the label, a full daily serving of the recommended vegetables.
I figured I didn't eat well anyway, the juice was good and it wasn't going to hurt me, so I started having a can every morning. As a plus there was 19% of the recommended salt for a day! <vbg>.
Today, this morning about eleven I noticed I had been skipping the salad and thought about it, it didn't take long to connect the dots.
I guess my body needed vegies.... What the body needs is what the body needs.
I'd read about the Fabled Lost City Of Eldorado, who'd have guessed it was in Kansas?
