A prize for Eating Fruit and Veg

Sunday, June 03, 2012

I was suprised today to have find I had won a Sparks Goodie prize awarded by the team
Every Day Is A Fresh Start - Make It A Positive One.
Surely thats some thing we all strive to achieve?
There was a competition for a month "Eat a varied a selection of fruit and vegtables each day. Then make a word up from the initial letter of each item".
It sounded easy . We soon discovered theres not many fruit or vegetables starting with a vowel. I ate a lot of apples over the month to gain a vowel
We earned point for the length of each word used. Most were 3 letter words but they gave us 5 points each.
I enjoyed this challenge. It made me try more of a variety of veg or fruit, I would think "ah theres a letter I can use to complete a word."Fortunatly I do enjoy fruit and vegetables and eat a lot of it daily. What a mixture it often was so I could make a word for the challenge.
The competition is over but I shall continue to look for a varied selection for every meal.
Maybe other teams may like to do this challenge?

    What a fun thing to do - using the first letter of vegetables and fruit to make up words! You are such a positive influence.

    Congratulations. I don't eat enough but I'm getting better. I don't think I can make a word with Spinach, Strawberries, Blueberries, and carrots. emoticon

    Congratulations on winning the Challenge! You do eat a lot of healthy fruits and veggies and I always don't eat enough. I'm a Leader of a Team but I don't know if this Challenge would work with our Team. It's tough to keep thinking of new Challenges but someone had a new and clever idea on your Team. Enjoy Sunday and fit some R & R in also.

    That sounds like a fun but challenging competition! Sounds like a healthy way to vegetate. haha. I have been trying to eat more fruits and vegetables, but I am sure you have me beat. Cant imagine having to find one for each letter of the alphabet!

    I see your other blog title" Iam cute." and I have to agree. Just from your blog I can tell that you are a fun, cute person. Stay sweet and keep inspiring others with your positive outlook toward life! emoticon
