[make: Brocolli Salad ... and a Plug for Mona Vie]

I hate vegetables right now. Seriously, just TYPING the word gives me the shudders. I'm sure the average preggo woman detests veggies ... right now I'm all about a bowl of cereal, or a baked potato LATHERED in butter. *drool*. So sure, I'm taking my multi vitamin - but as an added "help", I've been taking Mona Vie.

It's a drink, made from the acai berry (yada yada yada) and each 4oz contains 13 servings of fruits and veggies. And I just down it in a small espresso cup, twice a day. Can I be a shameless plug and say that I've been feeling SO much better? Shameless, I know. And although I'm now considered a "distributor", I will not be selling it. If you ARE interested in it, I can hook you up with someone who is.

There are a few "vegetable" things I can stand. Like ... hmm ... zoo sticks with dip *grin*. Awe, come ON ... they're a veggie, right?? And IF I had all the ingredients, I just might have made this tonight ... for some reason, it sounds appetizing to me.
You probably already have this one ...

Broccoli Salad - serves 8

5 cups fresh chopped broccoli
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/2 cup sugar *which is PROBABLY why I think this sounds yummy *grin**
3 tbsp vinegar
1 cup mayonnaise
10 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 cup sunflower seeds


- combine first 3 ingredients in a large bowl.
- combine next 3 ingredients in a small bowl.
- toss together in large bowl. Refrigerate.
- just before serving, add bacon and seeds.

I have had it -- sooooo good. And as a fellow preggo, this as my veggie intake sounds great. So does asparagus with a LOT of honey mustard. Or caesar salad with lots of dressing ... You get the idea.

That salad is super yummy - it's also good with grapes cut in half in place of the raisins... a little "fresher" tasting, and good for crunch factor - yum! :)
