Eating Fruits & Veggies are Essential
Here are some tips on how to develop fruit and veggie habits:
If you do not eat a lot of fruits and veggies, your body will need a little time to adjust to the lifestyle. Here is a quick 1, 2, 3 on how to make small adjustments, which will result in huge gains later.
- Fruit: Eat fruit in the morning. A few great options are blueberries, raspberries (each lower in sugar) or apples (higher in fiber). From there, you can even add various color combinations, making your AM fruit a fun adventure. We also recommend a play on your favorites, using fruit like frozen grapes in place of popsicles or ice cream.
- Veggies: Start by adding 1 type of veggie to each meal. If you are not sure where to start, go for whatever is in season. Examples are; scrambled eggs or egg whites with Kale or Spinach for breakfast, a Tuna Salad with Green Beans for lunch and Lean Steak with Brussel Sprouts for dinner. Brussel sprout cooking tip – Cut Brussel Sprouts in half, saute’ on hot pan making them slightly charred, then roast in oven at 350 until soft. A little oil and balsamic will sweeten them up!
- Final Step: Our final tip is to make sure that you are eating healthy snacks in between meals. This will keep your pallet on point to appreciate the fruits and veggies to come. Before you know it, you’ll be eating lighter, healthier and fresher.
Cheers to healthy!
