My WW leader, Jenn, challenged my group to eat at least 3 different (colored) fruits and veggies everyday this week, in an attempt to eat more healthy foods. You might be surprised by the number of people who don’t eat 5 servings a day anyway which makes this a great challenge.
I love fruits and veggies because I can eat a lot of them without using a lot of points. 😉 I eat green peppers and onions with egg whites for breakfast. And that’s a great way to start the day. Three egg whites = 1 point, and with the veggies it becomes a delicious treat. I also put veggies on the grill once or twice a week. We eat grilled kabobs, and I always cook more veggies that we’ll eat so I can toss them in with eggs or a piece of chicken during the week.
I eat 5 to 9 servings of fruits and veggies each day so I will, obviously, rock this challenge. 🙂 I ate a rainbow of veggies throughout the day yesterday, and I’m doing it again today.
Do you find it difficult to eat all of your fruits and veggies? Or do you have tricks that make eating vegetables easy? Do you think that 5 a day really does keep the doctor away?
