FRUIT AND VEGGIE POWER!
IT’S EASIER THAN YOU MAY THINK TO ADD EXTRA SERVINGS OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES TO YOUR DIET. CHECK OUT SOME TIPS YOU CAN USE FOR EVERY MEAL OF THE DAY:
*Add fresh raspberries or fresh, sliced strawberries to your cereal or oatmeal.
*Switch out your morning coffee for a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice once a week. It’s a great way to start your day and limit your weekly caffeine intake!
*Why not add extra veggies to your sandwich? Romaine hearts, tomatoes, and cucumber go great with a traditional mayo or vinaigrette
*If you’re more of a grazer during lunchtime, try hummus with fresh veggies for a lighter meal.
*Try adding a side salad or if you want to be a super sneaky, add some chopped and sautéed vegetables to your pasta sauce! Zucchini, carrots, onion, spinach and bell peppers are great in a marinara!
*Get creative with the pizza toppings! Pineapple, zucchini, cauliflower, broccoli… so many possibilities! And “designing” your own mini pizza is a great way to get the whole family involved. Make it colorful!
~MIX IT UP~
*Add some green to your smoothie! Try adding an avocado for a great nutritional boost and a creamy texture. Seriously—it’s delish!
WELCOME TO A COMMUNITY OF PEOPLE
WHO ARE READY TO COMMIT TO EATING HEALTHIER!
On Monday, January 29th, from 6 - 6:30 pm, Choices will host our first ever Real Food Revolution meeting! The vision for these meetings is to provide the time and opportunity for all of us to share ideas around a single topic, focused on improving our health through the food we use to fuel our bodies. The theme this week will be: Adding more fruits & vegetables to our diets. I will share two recipes (and samples of them) that have helped me in this area. If you have some ways you've made progress on this, or if you have particular challenges, please share, and we can all work together to eat healthier. Hope to see you then. Sign up below to reserve your seat!
