Yesterday, I talked about how fruits and veggies affect your health. I listened to a Dr. who suggested we eat 10-13 serving of vegetables and fruits every day!
How is that possible, I thought? But I decided to give it a try and see if I could do it, and it wasn’t as hard as I thought.
When I woke up I had 1 cup of V-8 splash 100% fruit/veggie juice. On the label it said it was one serving of fruit and one serving of veggies. 2 down.
For breakfast I had 1 serving of Puffin cereal from Trader Joe’s with skim milk and 1 cup of blueberries and 1 very large banana (which I am counting as 2 servings). 4 more servings down.
For my morning snack I had a very large apple, 2 more servings down
For lunch I had a noodle bowl from Trader Joe’s to which I added 1/2 cup of edamame, and 2 servings of green beans as well as 2 veggie pot stickers. 3 more servings down
For dinner, I had a ready made pork dinner from Trader Joe’s with sauteed onions and peppers. 1 more serving down
I also ate a cup of grapes while making dinner, 2 more servings down.
After dinner for my desert, I had another banana drizzled with Nutella. 1 more serving down.
So, all in all, I had 15 servings!!!

Can I do this everyday?? Probably not, I’m just kidding, I am going to try to make a better effort to think of fruits and veggies first before any chips, processed snacks etc…
We’ll see what I can do tomorrow!!
Do you buy organic produce, or just regular at the store??
