Each year HipWriterMama does a 30 challenge to help all of us kick off the New Year in style. You decide on a goal and you check in with her weekly. In this Year of Me, I want to eat more fruits and vegetables. I normally have fruit with breakfast and some veggie with dinner and that's it...two servings. Experts recommend 5 - 9 servings.
My goal is to each at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables. I'm going to do this buy adding fruit to my lunch, and snacking on fruit instead of chocolate! I can see this will have many benefits! Since I have breakfast at 6:30 and lunch at 12:15, I can use a mid morning snack and then I'm usually home by 5:30 or 6:00 which leaves time for a late afternoon snack.
This first week I bought some single serving packs of craisins, some apples and bananas, and I always eat fruit with breakfast. I just need to decide how to incorporate more veggies.
I'm working on it. Any ideas?
