As a dietitian, I’m always working to get my clients (and my friends and family!) to eat more vegetables. Many don’t realize the recommended daily serving size for fruits and vegetables is 10 servings per day. I know, double digits! It sounds like a lot, and it is, especially if you’re not a natural veggie-lover. But here’s what a serving really looks like:
The old saying is true, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Whether you choose to have your first meal at 6AM or 11AM, the first meal you ingest, and how you ingest it, sets the tone for the rest of the day. If you’re rushing out the door with a granola bar and a cup of coffee (and getting crumbs everywhere as you eat it on the way to work) how do you foresee that morning panning out? You’ll likely feel frazzled, unfocused, and ultimately less productive. But imagine taking just 10 extra minutes to prepare a delicious bowl of oatmeal or a sweet and creamy fruit smoothie? You’ll rev up your metabolism, your energy levels, and your focus so you’re off to a healthy and happy start to your day.
