1. eat more vegetables

I'm just going to give up on taking the absolute best pictures I can for these 2009 resolutions. I've got a sneaking suspicion it has been more about putting it off than any sort of perfectionist tendencies. So let's just get real and go with these day-old greens in a colander and get on with it.

In conclusion, I HAVE eaten more veggies this year than probably any year since leaving home. The key for me was finding two things I didn't know I liked-- greens and making my own salad dressings. The greens thing was a pleasant surprise that I stumbled into, while the salad dressing was because I'm poor and have a growing fear of preservatives (I really want to decompose at some point).

Regardless of how I came into them, these two have definitely upped my veggie intake. For example, last night I had a green salad with mustard vinaigrette and barley risotto with beans and greens. It was absolutely delicious, by the way.
