Diet Tip: Have One Fruit and One Veggie Each Meal

Unfortunately, eating healthy can be a lot harder than it appears.

A tip that I have been using to simplify things is always to eat at least one fruit serving and one vegetable serving at every meal. This way, you'll be loading up on healthy stuff each meal, and you won't feel as hungry for the junk food. Also, with eating two at each meal, you'll exceed your five a day, no problem.

I like to kid myself that sugar is a vegetable.. as it is from the sugar cane which is a plant aka vegetable SO chocolate has sugar and cocoa bean (another veggie in my oppinion) so voila.. health food.

Ever since I read the post about super foods, I've been incorporating them into my day. I've been taking baby carrots and red grapes to snack on in the morning and a honeycrisp apple and blueberries to snack on in the afternoon.

Majority of your plate should be covered in veggies anyways. Fruits are a great natural way to get sugar, if you're having a sweet tooth.
