So many people struggle with losing weight or maintaining a healthy weight. Why is that? The truth is, there are so many diet plans and diet advice that eating healthy can be confusing and difficult to navigate.
Here’s an idea: eat more fruit and vegetables! The majority of Americans do not eat enough fresh produce to stay healthy & well. Fruits and vegetables are low in calories and are packed with water, vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants. Since they are low in calories, you can pile on the helpings and still lose weight. The USDA recommends at least 5 servings of fruit and vegetables each day. I challenge you to eat more than that!
Also, eat a variety of different produce throughout the week. This will let you gain all the benefits of these healthy plant foods! Try to mix & match different fruits and vegetables to create a rainbow! Below are some examples;
- Red peppers
- Sweet Potatoes
- Orange peppers
- Yellow Peppers
- Purple Onions
And many more!
