It's time to incorporate extra veggies and fruits into the diet for a good kick start for the New Year!

Don't worry about robbing yourself of protein; the fact is: most vegetables and fruits contain protein.
Eating the extra veggies and fruit will also increase your fiber intake naturally and if you incorporate legumes into your diet as well, you'll get way more protein per serving than if you ate a steak plus you'll get ample fiber also.

People always want to know how to get more fiber in their diets; it's easy; eat produce, not products.

Here's to wishing you all a veggie and fruity New Year full of Happiness and Health!

    Thanks for the awesome pictures and cool reminder to eat our fruits and veggies! Today for breakfast I made my green smoothie with spinach, banana, green apple, carrot juice, flaxseed meal, and water. Yummy and healthy. I am grateful to be a vegan, flourishing on my plant-based diet. Happy New Year!
