For the past 10 days, I'm lucky if 50% of them I will even get 2-3 serves of fruit and/or veggies. I haven't been juicing once a week either (too lazy at the end of the day and it's too noisy in the early morning), so that idea hasn't panned out.
Any other options to getting in the recommended daily servings? Does anyone even know what the recommendation is? Well, it's 5-6 cups dependent upon age and sex (yeah, that's clear).
So here's my game plan to increase my fruit/veggie intake...Eat them at breakfast. I have a small betno boxes that I carry my lunch in. So my new breakfast will consist of carrots with hummus, tomatoes, and fruit (whichever I have on hand for the week - this week, it's grapes and apples) with either a high fiber piece of toast with honey or English muffin with honey and of course, coffee. My lunch will also have a fruit or veggie side. Today it's an apple. Yesterday it was carrots. Tomorrow will be another apple and a tangerine. When the weather changes, dinners will include a salad. I am thinking of going for a salad a day for 30 days (but not until the weather changes).
I know I need to make a better effort to snack on fruit and nuts vs. animal crackers or almond cranberry bars.
How do you get in your recommended serving of fruits and veggies each day?
