Eating It Real: Week 1

As I mentioned last week, I am undertaking a weekly challenge over the next 14 weeks to improve my eating habits. If you read the blog I am following, the main goal is to just do what you can to make better food choices - whether you follow the challenge for a week, a day or even just 1 meal. My goal is, for the most part, to layer these weeks onto each other. There are a few that I know won't be sustainable for me long-term, but I know I can do the majority of this overall for a healthier lifestyle! I also love that these are baby steps, as I have a LOT of bad habits to break!

This week's challenge is: Two fruits and/or vegetables per meal.

In some ways, I think this will be easy, and in other ways, it will be SO HARD. I like fruit enough {but don't seek it out} but veggies are awful. There are so few I like, but I hope by the end of this challenge, I've found a few extras I can stand. Luckily I can pick between fruits OR vegetables, so that should help!

I know my sister is doing the challenge with me {yay!}, so if anyone else wants to join in, leave a comment, and we can encourage each other to better eating!

Check back tomorrow for Emmy's fashion!!

So what you're saying is, in response to my facebook status on Friday... the handful of Skittles I ate did NOT count as a serving of fruit that day? ;)

Good for you! I try and eat a veggie or fruit at every meal. I like both.

I am the opposite. I really don't like fruit. I LOVE vegetables but there are literally only like 4 fruits I will eat.
