Take the FVT Nutrition Challenge each month, and build your clean eating foundation the easy way …
This month’s challenge:
Eat at least one serving of vegetables and/or fruits with every meal
One serving of vegetables or fruits – according to nutrition.about.com – is equal to about one-half cup. Greens like spinach and lettuce have a serving size equal to one full cup. One serving of sliced fruit is equal to one-half cup; however a single piece of fruit, such as an apple or an orange counts as one serving.
Preferred veggies are dark and colorful. Broccoli, spinach, collard greens, are all great choices to start – but most importantly, just get a serving of veggies every time you eat.
Best fruits choices are berries, cherries, apples, pears, peaches and plums – but again, most importantly, just get a couple of servings of fruit in each day.
That’s it! Good luck 😉
