Get Fresh!

Welcome to day 4 of the 5 for 10 Fruit and Veggie challenge.

As we talked about yesterday, pre-cut and frozen fruits or vegetables are great for you. But let’s be honest, a bag of frozen cauliflower florets doesn’t have the same appeal as a ripe, juicy peach from a farm stand or a tomato straight off the vine.

Visit a farmer’s market or sign up for a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share. Belonging to a CSA gives you access to high quality, fresh produce grown by a local farmer. Have a green thumb? Go to a nursery and buy a vegetable plant you can put in your yard or plant in a container in a sunny window or balcony. Believe it or not, fresh fruits and vegetables can taste so good that you’ll start to crave them!

Find this helpful? Use the social share links on this page to share it with a nurse you know and invite them to join the 5 for 10 Fruit and Veggie challenge.
