Theoretically, summer should be the healthiest time of the year to shove food in your mouth. Local farmer’s market and fresh/cheap produce in the stores leave no excuses for not getting your roughage, antioxidants and vitamins.
Personally, my fruit/veggie intake would almost make Dr. Oz proud. However, most days I turn around and realize my kids have not had a fruit or vegetable in forever (unless, of course, you count the strawberry filling in Pop Tarts as a fruit and catsup as a vegetable).
So…bring on the Subway.
This year Subway is teaming up with Disney’s Maleficent to encourage kids to “pile on the veggies.” My kids don’t even pile on the veggies at Subway most of the time (they are into piling on the iceberg lettuce and that is it), but on this day, they (Emma and her friend, Jesse) made an exception:
We got every veggie in the house minus jalapeños, mostly because those can create nasty gas (that burns!). We also skipped the onions (halitosis annoys me).
I happen to love Subway because it is cheap and it’s like having salad on a roll with some meat thrown in. Subway Jared is a fan of his veggies, and he has managed to keep his weight off (see his video HERE).
After our veggie extravaganza, we went to see Maleficent. Since my kids are older, it’s been awhile since I’ve done the Disney thing. It was actually quite entertaining and you will be shocked at who delivers true love’s kiss.
