Eating more fruits and vegetables is often hard to discipline yourself to do. I have discovered over the years that there are many ways to add and encourage fruits and vegetables in your daily regiment.

     One way is to use a grater or spiralizer or a veggetti equivalent to create veggie pastes,  toppings for salads, and stir fry. Try Zucchini, Bell Peppers, Apples, Potatoes, Cucumber, Cabbage, Onions, Squashes,  and Carrots. Here are some recipes to get you started today check theses out here and here.

      One way I make sure I am getting fruits and vegetables everyday is by taking Juice Plus+. Juice Plus+ is Next Best Thing To Fruits and Vegetables. Juice Plus+ is whole food based nutrition, including juice powder concentrates from 30 different fruits, vegetables and grains. Juice Plus+ helps bridge the gap between what you should eat and what you do eat every day. Juice plus is just fruits and vegetables from farm to a capsule to provide natural nutrients your body needs to be at its best.

Another way I like to add more fruits and vegetables is by adding them to my smoothies. I add greens of all kinds (kale, swiss chard, spinach, lettuce, etc) and any fruits I have available (bananas, cherries, blueberries, strawberries, mango, avocado, etc). I add a plant based protein mix to my smoothies called Juice Plus+ Complete which comes in Dutch Chocolate and French Vanilla.

     Start your own garden or alternative gardens as seen at Disney World’s Epcot to grow your own fruits and vegetables. Gardening is a great way to lower blood pressure and is way to combat stress.

     Look for farmer’s markets in your local area or in the organic produce section of your grocery store if possible to purchase quality fruits and vegetables if you are unable to plant your own. There are many benefits of buying organic including that they are fresher, contain fewer pesticides and promote a healthier environment to live in. If you are interested in how you can save money by purchasing produce that contains less pesticides if you are unable to get all organic look at this table.
