I don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables. I want to add one fruit and one vegetable to my daily diet . I think I can add one fruit in the morning as a snack and one more vegetable to either my lunch or my dinner. Another option is to add a vegetable as a mid afternoon snack cut that doesn’t sound very appealing! Open to suggestions!

I commit to making healthier food choices consistently - Balance my macros more.

I will drink 3 L of water a day and at least 2 L during my clinical rotations. By the end of any given day I am typically dehydrated so hopefully this will serve as a reminder to drink throughout the day rather than waiting until I am incredibly thirsty.
