March is National Nutrition Month. Studies suggest that the majority of American adults fall short on meeting their recommended 1 ½ to 2 ½ cup servings of fruit and 2 to 4 cup servings of veggies for the day. I am on CBS Atlanta with simple and realistic ways to help you meet your needs.
Fruit and veggies provide filling fiber, important for digestion, and key vitamins, minerals that support everything from immunity to vision. Help meet your fruit needs by adding a handful of berries to your morning oatmeal, adding sliced pears to your lunchtime salad or focusing on fruit at snack time. That’s It. makes delicious, convenient, fruit snacks are made with one ingredient – 100% real fruit, that’s it. So you are getting simple, pure, recognizable ingredients in a portable, convenient format and you don’t have to worry about fruit going bad on your counter. You can find these delicious, plant-based super snacks at major retailers nationwide including Walmart, Costco and Target.
Next, meet your veggie needs by adding leftover vegetables in the fridge to stir-fries, pureeing cooked spinach or butternut squash into pasta sauce or adding to homemade smoothies. You can make an all-day-energy smoothie using the formula from my new book, Mostly Plant-Based by combining fruit, protein, fiber rich fats and veggies like spinach, riced cauliflower or cold-pressed juice. Suja offers cold pressed juices and functional shots that are crafted with daily wellness and nutrition in mind.
