Start Meatless Mondays — this is a great way to eat a variety of colors and textures in your diets.

Start a family garden — you’ll eat what you grow and get more exercise too! See these helpful tips on starting a family garden or a community garden.

Set new weekly and monthly goals — here’s a good read for setting effective goals. An example could be, buy and try a new fruit or vegetable this week. Or if you have kids, together learn about the body benefits of different color healthy foods with Super Crew kid, Jessie. Then try one of the new foods listed each week

Say yes to produce — Make sure every plate (at breakfast, lunch, and dinner!) includes at least one portion of fruit or vegetable.  Challenge yourself to make it a different fruit or vegetable three times a week! For snacking make sure that fruits and veggies rule, by choosing and including these first.

Cut down on sugar —  Replace sugary desserts with whole fruit or mixed, chopped fruits.  Heat up frozen cherries with cocoa powder or a few mini chocolate chips.  If you still want to indulge, top a small scoop of ice cream with fresh berries, chopped nuts and/or a variety of chopped, fresh fruit! Make healthy substitutions when baking!
