It’s recommended that we eat 6-10 fruits and vegetables a day. Here in the states it is reported the actual average of fruits and veggies eaten each day is just 2. Yep, just 2.
It’s not that tough to get more fruits and veggies in each day and here are some super simple tips to get you started:
1) Buy them pre-chopped. Look; I can be lazy, too. There’s nothing wrong with not wanting to go through the hassle of having to chop up fruits and veggies.
2) Carry them with you. Load up a plastic baggie with your pre-chopped veggies and take them to work.
3) Add real fruit to your yogurt. Enjoy some yogurt for breakfast and add some fresh blueberries, raspberries or blackberries.
Bonus tip: Provide your body with the nutritional foundation you need each day is a Whole Foods based multi-vitamin. I’m a proud Prograde Nutrition partner and they have a terrific product called VGF 25+ that is made from 25 veggies, greens and fruits.
