Adding green, white, blue, purple, orange, yellow and red fruits and veggies to your meals takes imagination and a well-stocked refrigerator. So far today I’ve added a banana to my soy shake and thinly sliced cucumbers to my bagel and cream cheese. Bananas are a white fruit so I’ve consumed 1 white and 1 green serving, at least 5 to go.
When combat shopping at the local food warehouse I will lug home a very large bag of frozen strawberries. They have been flash frozen at the field and carry the red nutrients that can be added to breakfast shakes or blend them with a little pineapple juice for a great ice cream sauce. Of course vanilla ice cream is a faux white fruit.
Apply your creativity and let me know how you are going to add fruits and vegetables to every meal and snack. Remember that a variety of colors and at least 7 servings per day is the goal. Then we can truly have a healthchat.
