Veg Out: It's National 5 a Day Month!

Need a bit of a boost to start eating better?
September presents the perfect opportunity. Yep, it’s National Five a Day Month, which means you should try to eat five full servings of fruits and veggies every day.
Overwhelmed? We break it down into manageable bites.

Chop up bananas or blueberries and throw them in your cereal.
Top a yogurt parfait (or just, err, a cup of yogurt) with your fave berries, apples or some dried fruit and granola.
Toss tomatoes and peppers in your scrambled eggs and add some salsa to your plate. Delish.
Tote cut cauliflower and broccoli in a Baggie. Dip them in hummus.
Two words: whole fruit. Bring a piece each and every day.
Try some edamame for crispy green alternative to ho-hum carrots.

Go classic and bring ants on a log (that’s celery with peanut butter and raisins).

Swap lunch meat for avocado, sprouts, tomatoes and cukes. A piece of cheese and grainy bread seals the deal.
Skip the tater tots and opt for a crisp salad instead. Remember: bacon bits and ranch dressing aren’t exactly your bod’s BFFs. Try oil and vinegar instead.
Bringing your own salad? Make sure you include 3-4 different colors on it and, perhaps, even a piece of fruit. Pear, strawberries and dried cranberries are all amazing.
After Your Workout
Orange slices rule and give you a burst of hydration.
Apples and peanut butter are a great combo of protein and carbs. Instant refueling.

Yummy rolls and bread are tasty, but try smashed sweet potatoes or butternut squash for a side instead.
Forgot to eat your veggies earlier in the day? Stir-fry is a fab way to catch up.
Power up that pasta by adding a mix of greens (like spinach), some squash (like zucchini) and eggplant.
Savor veggies by eating them fresh outta the garden. Sliced tomatoes with mozzarella, snappy green beans or a just-lettuce salad are all fantastic, especially when the produce is local.
Strawberries dipped in dark chocolate are a decadent treat.
Bananas and chocolate pudding make you feel like you’re six again—in a good way!
Apples sprinkled with cinnamon sugar are perf for the season.
What are your fave ways to get five a day?
