I can't believe it is already Friday. With the seasonal allergies kicking in and the pressure to lose those winter bulges, the need to eat more fruits and vegetables is definitely on demand. But who actually consumes the recommended amount from this food group? Okay, my vegetarian and vegan friends are raising their hands!
For us mere mortals with good intentions who are easily tempted, I found out that the best way to get more veggies and fruits in our diet is to make smoothies. Even my pickiest child would agree that a delicious concoction will surely get a thumbs up whatever is in it. Aside from the health benefits, a big glass of smoothie is a perfect treat on a warm day.
What are you waiting for? Get them now!
Have a great weekend!
