WEEK 5 – Lifestyle Check
DAY 32 – Watching Your Vegetable Intake

Tip: Most of us need a constant reminder to eat enough vegetables, especially the dark green leafy variety. It’s not necessarily that we don’t like them, but these foods can sometimes seem to take more effort than others. They should be making up about half our actual food intake, but are you achieving that right now?

How: Revisit The Building Blocks of Lunch and Dinner chapter on page 96 of The De-Stress Diet to refresh how to include vegetables as the foundations of each meal. Prioritise these daily and be sure to have a dark green leaf portion at least once; choose from savoy cabbage, broccoli, asparagus, spinach, watercress, rocket and any other salad leaves. Remember, these can be included in your savoury Breakfast Outside the Box on page 88 too.

Why: We evolved foraging plants and there are many components of stalks and leaves that we rely on for optimal health and metabolism, including minerals, soluble fibre and antioxidants.
