eating enough fruits and vegetables
A healthy, well-balanced diet includes lean protein, carbohydrates, fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats. Unfortunately, a lot of people aren’t eating enough fruits and vegetables on a regular basis. Today, we’re going to talk about why you should make them a priority in your diet!
Benefits of Fruits and vegetables
Fruits and vegetables are a key part of any healthy diet because they’re good sources of essential vitamins and minerals. They’re also low in calories and fat, and any sugar that they offer is natural, not added. That makes them an ideal addition to any meal.
The meal plan for the Transformation Kit puts a lot of focus on eating enough protein, but fruits and vegetables also play an important role in your transformation. On Meal Days, you’ll add them into your daily schedule to provide key nutrients. Be sure to make them a priority the way you would your protein or your carbohydrates!
tips to eat more fruits and veggies
One easy way to get more fruits and vegetables in your diet is by drinking Lean Greens! Lean Greens is a green drink that contains thirty fruits and vegetables. Each scoop offers a full serving of vegetables, so it’s a great way to boost your intake!
You can also add fruits and vegetables to your Yoli Essential Shake. Spinach is a great way to sneak in an extra serving of veggies because it’s pretty mild and won’t overtake the flavor of your YES. Fruit is also a delicious addition. You can find a few of our favorite combinations here!
Another way to pay more attention to your fruit and veggie intake overall is to look at the colors on your plate. If your entire plate is brown, you’re probably not eating enough fruits and vegetables! Add some color to your plate with some fruits and veggies for a healthy and well-rounded meal.
And finally, if it’s hard for you to find fresh fruit and vegetables in season, that doesn’t mean you’re out of luck! Frozen fruits and vegetables are a great option because they carry the same nutritional value as non-frozen fruits and veggies, they can last a long time in your freezer, and they’re often a more economical option than their fresh counterparts. They’re a great way to make fruits and vegetables a priority in your diet!
