New You for the New Year!!

May’s goal: Eat more fruits and vegetables!

Almost all of us could use a little more fruit or veggie in our lives. With so many processed foods available, it can be hard to make sure you reach the recommended number of servings in a day — which amount to about two cups of fruits and three cups of vegetables per day.

Speaking of buying more produce, replace the snacks you keep around (or at least right in the line of sight) with snackable produce: oranges, apples, bananas, carrots, and bell peppers are all awesome choices.

To really commit to consuming more veg, declare at least one dinner per week as meat-free (it doesn’t have to be Mondays). Have fun trying vegetarian versions of your favorite recipes, or explore new options. If you are looking for new meal ideas (in general, not just vegetarian), I recommend the YouTube channel Food Wishes — not only is Chef John hilarious, but he makes dishes simple and fun to make.

Love & Sparkle,
