After five days of tracking my intake of fruits and vegetables, I have discovered getting enough servings in these two food groups can be hard!
I did a few things to increase the availability of fruit and vegetables in our home. First, I went grocery shopping for vegetables since we never seem to have enough choices. I bought carrots, kale, snow peas and broccoli. Then, I filled a fruit bowl in the living room so I would see apples and bananas when I felt the urge to eat.
Most days, I ate enough fruit and vegetables but it was a challenge.
Foods from these groups make great snack foods!
It is a novelty for me to have to eat something. Usually I am trying to avoid eating.
Last night, we tried kale chips for the first time. My husband was not a fan, but I thought they were crispy and flavorful!
Best always, Alexandra
