Last year, I purposed to eat more veggies. The fact was that I did not eat enough. I was fueling my body with way too many processed foods. So I decided to increase my veggie and fruit intake. Here are a few things that work for me and my family.
I eat an apple every morning for a snack. By pairing it with some protein like cheese or peanut butter it makes a really great healthy snack! I also try to eat veggies everyday for an afternoon snack. I really like sliced tomatoes with a little cheese or cut veggies dipped in humus. Yum!
If you cut it up they will eat it! So true with kids and hubbies.
I have also been using more veggies when I cook dinner. Chopping up onions or peppers or mushrooms and adding them my meals gives me extra nutrition and fills me up.
Another awesome way we get more fruit is using it in smoothees! I chop it up and freeze it. So good! The kids really love them for snacks and I drink it with a quality, non GMO protein to make it a meal.
These eating habits have helped me drop 4 lbs and 5 inches last month. You can see my pictures here.
Lastly, my family and I take quality, pure. whole food supplements. This has helped keep us all healthy. NO prescription meds here for us. Plus because of it’s purity we are getting an abundance of vitamins and minerals found in real food. Here is a visual of what I take.
Start eating more fruits and veggies today. Fill up your body with real food and you will feel so much better. You might even drop a few pounds too.
What are your favorite fruits or veggies? How do you eat it? Do you eat them everyday? Do you find creative ways to ‘sneak’ them in for your family like I do?
