1. Support of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans: higher in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low-fat dairy, seafood, legumes and nuts, moderate in alcohol, lower in red and processed meats, and low in sugar-sweetened foods and drinks and refined grains. This includes the idea that there’s more than one way to achieve a healthy diet — these foods can be enjoyed in a vegetarian diet, Mediterranean diet or other style of eating.
Gee, higher in vegetables and fruits. Couldn't get more plainer than that. But, how will you achieve that?
For some of you, you already believe that you are doing enough. You color your plate every night with varying vegetables and you eat fruit on the side..."Hey, I got this." Maybe. Chances are that still isn't enough.
For the rest of you, it is time to get going. Rock those veggies-every day! Let's up that intake of fruit. You can do it. I believe you can. It is all a matter of choice.
I'm not going to come over and knock you about if you didin't eat that banana for lunch like you said you would. Just try to do better next time.
Let's all try to take the guilt and bad feelings out of the food choices we make. That does not accomplish anything positive.
Allow me to make a recommendation. Try Juice Plus+ Capsules. They're packed with the phytonutrients (the good stuff) of over 30 different fruits and vegetables. Taken daily, they can "Bridge The Gap" between what you're doing and where you'd like to be. Taken alone, they may make a marked improvement in some aspect of your life that otherwise wouldn't have been done.
Go forth and rock those fruits and veggies.
