This is a spin off thread to this one-http://community.myfitnesspal.com/en/discussion/10520032/10-portions-of-fruit-and-veg-a-day/p1
and is based off of this articlehttps://www.theguardian.com/society/2017/feb/23/five-day-10-portions-fruit-veg-cut-early-death
A few of us decided to challenge ourselves to try and hit the daily recommended amount of vegetables and fruit:10 servings ie
800grams. If this is something you'd like to challenge yourself to do, then please join in!The Challenge
-aim to eat 800g of vegetables and fruit each day, in any combination, Monday, February 27th-Friday, March 3rd
-what counts? I'll be going by these guidelines http://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/5ADAY/Pages/Whatcounts.aspx
-don't worry if you can't hit 800g! This is a fun, low pressure challenge to encourage us to eat more veggies and fruit
If you're going to join in, please post in this thread with updates as the week progresses. Do you have a menu planned? Are you trying new vegetables and/or fruit? Have you found a new recipe that you're going to try? Was shopping for all your produce different than from how you normally shop? Feel free to answer any of these questions (or none at all lol).
And then if you want you can keep a daily, running total with how many grams of vegetables and fruit you're eating!
