The ABC Veggie Challenge

Who doesn't need to challenge themselves to eat more veggies?

Veggies are the triple win:

  1. Loaded with vitamins and minerals
  2. Tons of fiber
  3. Relatively low in calories

That's a triple win. Now I want you to eat more of these triple win foods.

Here's the ABC Veggie challenge. Your goal for the next 30 days is to place a check mark next to each letter of the alphabet (each letter stands for a veggie that you'll be eating). These are the rules. You can only check off one letter each day. You must have already eaten that vegetable before checking it off. For example, if I ate spinach today I could check off the S. I will have kale with breakfast tomorrow, so after I eat breakfast I can then check off the K. Its a 30 day challenge and only 26 letters so you have a bit of lee way. The vegetables listed are just ideas; you can pick another vegetable that starts with that letter. You don't have to go in order but you need to check off all 26 in 30 days. Who's up for the challenge?
