Have you eaten a rainbow lately?
I’m talking about a rainbow of fruits & vegetables.
I’ve written about increasing my fruits & vegetables several times, and I’m going to keep writing about it because eating my fruit is still a challenge for me. I know I should eat 5 servings of fruits & vegetables (find out What's a Serving of Vegetables and What's a Serving of Fruit).
I know that I should eat more fruits & vegetables. I know that fruits & vegetables contain minerals, vitamins, fiber and lots of other good stuff for me. But just because I know something doesn’t mean I do that something. So I’m always trying new ways to accomplish old goals.
Fruits & veggies come in a wide variety of colors — just like a rainbow!
red apples, beets, tomatoes, strawberries, pomegranates, cherries
apricots, carrots, sweet potatoes, tangerines, papayas, squash
starfruit, sweet corn, yellow summer squash, pineapple, pears
green grapes, honeydew, asparagus, kiwi, arugula, avocados
blackberries, eggplant, figs, plums, purple sweet potatoes, raisins
jicama, bananas, onions, cauliflower, parsnips, potatoes
I think focusing on eating a rainbow may help me since it brings a bit more fun into the game. Counting is okay, but trying to eat the different colors in fruits & veggies
is more visual and interactive for me. So this week I’m focusing on eating a rainbow.
Will you eat a rainbow this week?
