I slam many of my veggies into my smoothies. Kale and spinach are easy mix ins and frozen organic green beans add a natural sweetness to them, as well as some great fiber.

I have been eating about 4 veggies and 3 fruits per day, adding the 5th vegetable serving is surprisingly challenging. I think I need to sneak in a vegetable at breakfast, maybe sliced tomatoes. Ideas anyone?

emoticon want to love vegetables again, do without them for 4 days, I have been preparing for a colonoscopy and you have to eliminate fruits and vegetables. In 4 days they look and taste so good.

most firm vegetables (carrots, celery, broc, caulifl) transport very well and the salads in a jar concept is also a good way to keep vegetables from being smooshed.
Those little banana keepers are pretty good and can sometimes be found at a dollar store.
Taking frozen fruit can work as it cools itself for awhile and is cool and refreshing when you eat it as long as it is not too much later.

My local grocer prepares fruit and vegetable trays for me with a good assortment, cut and cleaned. I transfer the fruits and veggies to tupperware containers for transportation to work. This has been the best way for me to get my servings in each work day.

I don't know about you guys, but trying to work in the 5 servings of fruit and veggies is a bit difficult for me. Not because I don't like fruits and veggies (I do!), but because they really don't transport to work well. Apples (grapples...mmmm) and peaches have done well for me so far, but I am no where near the amount of servings this week requires of me.

I'm trying to take the time each night to prep my meals and snacks for work (we leave the house about 3:30 every morning and don't return until about 5pm, so most of my meals occur at work). So far, it seems to be helping, but this week will be challenging!

It's a challenge that I am looking forward to, though!
