Making Peace with Veggies

The past two days, I have made some huge strides in my relationship with vegetables.

Yesterday, I bought a chargrilled chicken and fruit salad from Chick-Fil-A. I had to eat it while driving to pick up my co-op bag, but managed to wrap and eat each chicken strip in lettuce AND ate all of the shredded carrots.

Today, while Mom was in surgery, we took Dad to Longhorn, where I ordered a side of steamed asparagus with my steak. And it wasn’t just for show – I ate two or three stalks!

To you veggie loving folks out there, you may scoff at my progress. I know that the quantity isn’t where it needs to be, but every bite I take gets me one step closer!

As Louis L’Amour said, “Victory is not won in miles but in inches. Win a little now, hold your ground, and later win a little more.”
