Eat Your Veggies: Weekly Habit Practice

Reading Time: 2 minutes
The next Whole Life Challenge starts in:

Eat Your Vegetables at Each Meal This Week

Simple Instructions:

  • Eat a serving of vegetables with your three main meals each day: breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
  • You do not have to eat a serving of vegetables with your snacks (but veggies do make good snacks, FYI).
  • Vegetables can be raw or cooked, mixed in or flying solo.
  • It doesn’t have to be complicated. Getting your vegetables can be as simple as adding sauteed onions or mushrooms to your steak or throwing a big handful of spinach into your scrambled eggs

Why Is This Practice Important?

Did you know kale has as much calcium as milk? That cauliflower and red peppers are good sources of omega-3 fatty acids? And that you can get a dose of vitamin D from certain mushrooms?

In fact, the nutrients usually associated with milk, fish, and eggs are also available to you in the produce aisle of the supermarket. And because they are rich in fiber and generally low in sugar, veggies are also a tasty and satisfying way to get and stay full without busting up your nutrition plan.

So consider this week your vegetable adventure (vegeventure?), and stay optimistic — this could be the week you discover your new favorite vegetable.
