Welcome to your Whole Produce Challenge! For this challenge, you’re going to swap one highly processed food for a whole fruit or veggie. You’ll do this once a day for 5 days.
What Is Whole Produce?
When we say “whole fruit or veggie,” we mean any produce in its most natural form. Think bananas, not banana chips. A tomato, not tomato sauce. You do not have to eat the whole thing! The serving size will depend on the food.
Whole foods have lots of nutrients. They don’t have added sugars or salt. They are packed with vitamins and minerals your body needs. Highly processed foods like potato chips and cookies tend to have fewer nutrients. They can also have more salt, sugar, and calories than you’d expect.
There are so many whole fruits and vegetables to choose from. Craving a piece of candy after lunch? Try a sweet fruit like an orange or plum instead. Love dipping chips into salsa? Try cucumber spears instead. The possibilities are endless — and delicious! Here are some fruits and veggies to try:
- Grape tomatoes
- Snow pea
- Sugar snap peas
