? Tag a Friend Who Needs This Post! ?
Listen. We all know it's important to eat fruits & veggies. They’re vital for optimal health and help fill your belly for fewer calories (which is crucial for staying consistent on your diet)
But let's be honest... very few of us actually eat the recommended 2-4 servings of both fruits AND veggies each day.
A lot of people think it's because they don't like eating fruits & vegetables. But I disagree. I honestly believe it comes down to failed preparation techniques.
In fact, when you have strategies in place that make fruits & veggies convenient and tasty, I guarantee you'll be surprised how easy it is to start including (and enjoying) more fruits & veggies in your diet!
The six strategies in this post are all ones I use for myself and with my clients on a regular basis:
1️⃣ Make Them Convenient - you'll be a LOT more likely to eat the fruits & veggies in your house if they're pre-washed, pre-chopped, and ready to go
2️⃣ Eat Them To Start Your Day - you'll start with a "win," which’ll build momentum to continue eating fruits & veggies the rest of the day
3️⃣ Eat Them First During a Meal - start your dinner with a salad or piece of fruit
4️⃣ Make Them Your Snacks - I'm not a huge fan of snacking, but when I do snack, It's ALWAYS a piece of fruit or vegetable (usually paired with lean protein)
5️⃣ Don't Fear Frozen - No. Frozen fruit & veggies are not bad for you. If someone says they’re bad, smack ‘em ?
6️⃣ Add Flavor & Spice - don't be afraid to add sauce or seasoning to your veggies. It'll make them taste better, and you'll be more likely to eat them
