The easy way to eat your vegetables #tryfor5

It’s hard to eat five serves of vegetables every day. While I enjoy vegetables (not necessarily salad), life is busy and some days I couldn’t care less about how many vegetables I’ve eaten.

We’ve all been there.

Take the challenge to eat more vegetables

There’s no meal plan to follow and you won’t record everything you eat into My Fitness Pal. It’s a challenge to eat more vegetables. No matter how you do it, #tryfor5 your way.


National Nutrition Week (16-22 October 2016) is a chance to try for five serves of vegetables every day. A cup of salad OR 1/2 cup of cooked veggies, that’s one serve. But if you don’t reach 5 serves, eating more vegetables do wonders for your health.

We did the challenge last year as a team (you can read about it here) and we’re doing it again.
