Psst! Hey you! Want to feel healthier? Here's a little mission I sent my clients on recently to accomplish just that. The impetus for creating Operation Vegetable was to encourage my group fitness clients to eat healthier. In my classes, I often ask clients what they had for dinner the night before. I do this, one, to give them a rest between exercise sets and two, to get recipe ideas for myself and for the group at large.
