Don't like eggs but I do like peanuts and almonds. I like cereals like cheerio's and corn flakes. My main problem is vegetables I don't do salad or stir fry. I have been trying to throw some veggies into my fruit smoothies in the morning and I'll do celery with peanut butter and raisins or some raw baby carrots with yogurt dip. It's just hard to get enough servings of vegetables. I think my main down fall is sweets. Thanks for the advice.

Let's look at this by food groups: Milk: you are getting yogurt and milk. Any cheese?? This area looks good, use low fat varieties.
Meat/protein: you are getting chicken and turkey. You are also getting protein from your milk foods. Are you eating any eggs, beans, lentils, legumes, nuts, seeds, peanuts.
Grains: you are selecting whole grain breads, pasta...any cereal, oatmeal, rice, barley, bulgur, etc??
You like fruits.
So the big issue is veggies. Do you do salad, stir-fry, veggies in soups or stew. Since these may be lower; eat a few more colorful fruits daily to make up the difference--the nutrients are similar.
For a healthy adult, healthy weight...A general recommendation would be to have no more than 1 sweet treat daily (about 150 calories from sweets).
Hope this helps Dietitian Becky

Me and my husband are ttc our 4th child and I would like to start eating healthier. My problem is I am so picky! I hate vegetables, I don't like anything spicy, and the only meat I eat is chicken or turkey. I love fruits, yogurt, milk, whole grain breads and pasta. I also have a huge sweet tooth and love baking. So my question is how can I eat healthier when I don't like the majority of healthy foods? Any advice?
