In less than a week the Healthy Hair Challenge for April will start rules are here. One of the challenges is to consume raw fruits and veggies at least three times a week. I’ve received a few questions from you on the matter. A lot of you don’t know how to add raw fruit and veggies into your diet because you’re busy or you don’t have a blender. Here are a couple of ways to get you started.
- Start with salads. You can buy them bagged or make them yourself. They can be your full meal or you can add them on the side. I bought some spring mix and I add a handful to my lunch while I’m at work.
- If you don’t have a blender or a juicer and you want juices or smoothies. You can try buying raw juices and smoothies they have in the supermarket. Right now I have Bolthouse brand Juiced Greens, Green Goodness, and Berry Boost. I mix the Juiced Greens with Berry Boost or Green Goodness and that’s my smoothie for the day. I prefer to make my own but I haven’t been able to shop.
- You can add fruit to your yogurt or ice cream. You can have carrots as a snack. There are so many small changes you can make.
- When you go food shopping buy your fruits and veggies in bulk so you can make salads, smoothies, juices, and snacks.
