Squeezing the recommended 7 (or more) servings of produce into your busy day might sound hard, but it’s not. Here’s how to hit your mark:
Breakfast and fruit go together like “good” and “morning.” Add 1/2 cup of berries (or 1/4 cup of raisins, both 1 serving) and a sliced banana (another serving) to your cereal. Add some nuts for crunch, if you like (another serving). Brain and body will be ready to go, and you’ve already got 3 servings in — we call that winning the morning.
Take a salad break. Conveniently portable and infinitely customizable, salads are perfect for lunch to go. Toss together some greens (1 serving) with sweet tomatoes (another serving) and roasted squash (another serving) for 3 more servings of produce in a delicious midday meal. Good job!
Grab a fruit snack. Keep a bowl of whole fruit visible at home or on your desk, then grab an apple after yoga or an orange after your meeting for a nutritious pick-me-up. (And 1 more serving!)
Think roasted and tossed for dinner. Get amazing flavor and nutrition by adding a veggie side and a fresh salad to dinner. Roasting broccoli, for example, is an easy way to rediscover an old favorite. And you can’t beat our pre-washed organic greens for tossing together a quick, delicious salad. Fill half your plate with veggies and salad to add 2-3 more servings to your daily total.
That’s a day with 9-10 servings of produce right there. No problem, so delicious!
