How’s everyone’s week starting out?! Great I hope!
I have a fun little challenge to share with you guys today, and I sure hope you’ll join in!
The holidays are coming up which is typically a time of extra sweets and indulgences. I’m all about desserts when consumed in moderation, but it’s still important to make those fruits and veggies a priority in your diet. They are packed with fiber and tons of good-for-you vitamins and minerals. I’m going to challenge all of you to eat at least FIVE servings of fruits and/or veggies each day throughout the month of October.
October 1st is our starting date and is exactly one week away (talk about crazy!), so you have a few days to stock up your produce drawers and prepare yourself for the challenge.
Here’s some tips to help you prepare:
- Stock your fridge with fresh produce.
- Go outside the box and buy some new fruits/veggies that you’ve never tried – you never know, you may find a new favorite!
- Wash, chop, and prep fruit and veggies to easily grab.
- Get creative – add fruits and veggies to dishes, breads, oatmeal, etc.
- Eat at least one serving of produce with each meal – that’s already 3 servings for the day!
To participate in the challenge, click HERE and “accept the challenge”.
After you have accepted the challenge, you’ll need to write on the challenge page each day and tell us what fruits and veggies you ate for the day or post a photo of the fruits and/or veggies you ate!
Those that have posted at least 8 times on the challenge page will be entered to win a prize pack from Kodiak Cakes that will include a pancake mix, cookie mix, and syrup. A winner will be randomly chosen when the challenge is over at the end of the month.
Feel free to share your fruits and veggies on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram and use the hashtag #OctoberFruitsAndVeggies.
I’ll continue to remind you of the challenge within the next week and also throughout the month of October. I hope you’ll join me!
