Green veggie, red veggie, one veggie, two veggie...

So this last week was a little crazy for me to say the least! Not only am I preparing for having a baby any day now, my mother-in-law came into town and is staying with us to help with the birth and anything else we need. Then, on top of that, I actually had a two day business conference down in Louisville with twenty other health and fitness entrepreneurs! I was expecting, at any time, to get the call that my wife had gone into labor and I would go screaming back up to Noblesville Blues brothers style with 20+ cop cars on my tail! Fortunately, for all of us, that didn't happen.

Today our habit is all about veggies and fruit. So we all know that we are supposed to eat them and for most of us we are probably not getting enough of them if we are honest with ourselves (I know this is an area that I could improve on). So this is the week to work on that!

Veggies are packed with vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients (plant nutrients) (I mean, they are plant nutrients, so they have to be good for you, right?). They are also loaded with fiber which is excellent for keeping the digestive system working the way it should. 

So this week shoot to have 5 servings of veggies and/or fruit per day.

Start with what you like. Instead of getting all caught up in trying to eat some veggie that you don't like or worrying about which ones are better than others just start with what you do like or at least can tolerate. So if that is your frozen veggie pack of corn, peas, and carrots, well, start with that. It's better than not having any, right? Or if that is iceberg lettuce in your salad as opposed to spinach, start there.

Every choice we make is either moving us towards being more healthy or away from it. So even if it is a small step towards being more healthy, it is a step in the right direction and should be celebrated!
