We all know that it’s a good plan to include lots of fresh fruits and veggies in our day. I know many of us will remember the ‘echo’ of “Eat your Veggies” from our childhoods. I do. There were a couple of veggies that I didn’t fancy but for the mostpart, I have been a fan of seasonal fresh fruits and veggies, both raw + cooked, always. Are you a fan of the ‘fresh’ ?
Let’s face it ~ We ALL could benefit from eating more fruits and veggies every day!!
How many servings, daily, do you eat personally?
What is a ‘serving size’ these days? Here’s a link to give you an idea.
Eat your veggies! Is this an often uttered plea in your house, with your family?
Health Canada recommends 7 servings daily for adult women. That’s each and every day!
Children? 4-6 servings per day!
Well.. that’s a lot of salads! Not sure we can fit all of that into our day.. we think..
Eat Your Veggies has become a theme in my home!
It’s a few years now that I’ve been experimenting with different ways to prepare seasonal fresh produce. There’s the traditional ways that we enjoyed a fruit or veggie from our own family’s habits and recipes, but there’s more to be explored, for sure.
As a busy herbalist, I try to ‘practice what I preach’. I teach about eating the rainbow, and embracing new and exciting ways to prepare and enjoy nature’s bounty, I am always active in my quest for another idea ~ a twist on the ‘norm’. Everyone seems to have the same lament ~ “It takes so much time” or “I am tired of the same thing”
NEW recipe ideas make a huge difference in the quest to increase our veggie and fruit ‘intake”, don’t you agree?
Very excited to share the news about a possible solution for you! My longtime friend Jessica Espinoza, has created the perfect little eCourse to inspire us!
She has created the Eat the Rainbow eCourse as a way to help herself eat more fruits and veggies. This is an area she,(like many of us) really struggled and she wanted to find easy ways to get more produce into her everyday diet. This course was born out of that experience. I can’t wait to get started!
Jessica says: “This eCourse is perfect for all eaters — no matter what dietary style you follow. While there may be a lot of debate as to the “perfect” diet, there is one thing that we know, eating more fruits and veggies is never a bad thing. It doesn’t matter if you’re paleo, traditional foods, vegan, vegetarian, keto, or whatever other form of a diet you may be following, vegetables (and some fruits when tolerated) should make up a large chunk of our diet and our health can improve dramatically just from this one thing.
I created this course to appeal to all dietary styles and all levels of “foodiness”. Whether you are brand new to eating real food or a seasoned expert in the real food world, this eCourse is packed full of easy tips, tricks, recipes, and nutrition facts that everyone can benefit from.”
…. and I mean….. without having to eat a big salad with every meal? This helpful eCourse is
launching with a super introductory price! I’m sincerely SO excited. I hope you are too.
