How To Get Enough Fruits & Veggies

We all know that we need to eat more fruits and vegetables each day, but that’s not always the easiest thing to do. Adding more fruits and vegetables into our daily eating habits will help us out in several ways. I know sometimes fruits and veggies don’t always sound like the most appealing thing to eat, but we need to try and find ways to incorporate them into our meals more often. Here are a few simple tips of things we can do to add more fruits and vegetables into our daily regimen.

Make Them Ready to Eat

One of the first things we can do in order to add more fruits and vegetables into our diet, is by making them ready to eat. What I mean by this is, once you bring them home from the grocery store wash, prep, and package them. This will help make them ready for you to grab and eat when you want some. Also, buying fruits and vegetables such as apples, grapes, bell peppers, and carrots will make this easier. These are all foods that can quickly be measured out and are easy to eat, even when we are busy and on the go. They also make for great snacks that help keep us on track throughout the day. Setting aside healthy items to dip your fruits or vegetables in such as hummus, peanut butter, or honey will help make them more appealing to you as well and easier to eat.

Make Smoothies

This is always going to be a quick and easy way for you to get some fruits and vegetables into your day. You can throw just about anything into the blender and make it into a smoothie. This is also a great way for you to get in some of those fruits and veggies that you don’t necessarily like, but you know they are good for you. You can help hide the taste of what you don’t like by adding in more of what you do like. This is also a great option for if you need something quick or are looking for a lighter option.

Make it a Challenge

Have some fun with trying to add more fruits and vegetables into your diet. I know most of us like a challenge, so why not try and challenge yourself when it comes to eating as well. Giving ourselves a challenge is a way that can help motivate us to actually reach for hitting our goals. We could challenge ourselves with something as simple as having a fruit or vegetable present at each meal, no matter how big or small the amount. Once this becomes an easy task for us, we could up the ante and start increasing the amount of fruits and vegetables that we consume at each meal.
