Eat 2 Different Fruits and/or Vegetables With Each Meal
Finally! A Juggling Challenge that is more fun. I love this week’s challenge because it is all about what you CAN eat and not about what you CAN’T eat. There is a whole rainbow of fruits and vegetables to choose from. However, if you are like most people eating the typical American diet, you are probably not eating 2 different fruits or
vegetables in a day…………..let alone per meal. The best part of this challenge………..you will start to feel better (even if you already feel good) when you start adding in a wider variety of nutrients.
Another positive is that fruits and vegetables are very filling. The fiber in them helps to make your belly feel fuller. If your belly feels fuller, you will be less likely to turn around and put junk in it.
My story of my picky 5-year-old is to encourage you to give this a try even if you are not a big fan of fruits and vegetables either. I still manage to get 2 fruits and or vegetables into that boy at each meal. I leave a fruit bowl out at all times and I love to see him “sneaking” off with a banana. I stick bananas in his pancakes and apples on the side. I load my pizza and pasta sauce with lots of veggies. I serve applesauce to him all the time and thanks to that picky boy…………..I discovered that I love apple, banana, and peach fruit salad.
