This weeks challenge will focus on adding more fruits and vegetables to our diet. The recommended amount is 5-9 servings a day. Some of us have no problem eating fruits daily. but we may find it more difficult adding leafy greens to our daily diet and vice versa.
Here are a few ways we can add more of natures medicine into our daily diet:
Make a fruit and vegetable smoothie for breakfast.
This is my favorite breakfast smoothie recipe: 1 cup almond milk, 2 handfuls spinach, 1 handful kale, 1 frozen banana, 1 tbs nut butter, 1 frozen peach, 1/2c plain greek yogurt, blend and enjoy.
Make vegetable omelette and serve with a side of fruit.
Have a huge salad for lunch and or for dinner, just make sure you add healthy fats and lean protein.
This is one of my favorite salads: romaine lettuce, red bell pepper, cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, strawberries and slivered almonds.
It helps to think of vegetables as the main part of your evening meal and lean protein as a side.
As always I will be doing this with you.
