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.
Yup, just 2.
Now, I don’t know where you stand on this, but overall, it really is a sad state of nutritional affairs.
But do not despair! It’s not that tough to get more fruits and veggies in each day.
Here are some super simple tips to get you started:
1) Buy ’em 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. If you want to buy them pre-chopped go ahead. It’s much better for you than not eating them.
2) Carry ’em with you
Load up a plastic baggie with your pre-chopped veggies and bring them to work. Seriously, see how easy this can be!
3) Add real fruit to your yogurt
Have some yogurt for breakfast and add some fresh blueberries, raspberries or blackberries. It’s that simple!
Bonus tip: A great way to 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.
