Healthy Table

Seven-day Challenge: Power Up Your Vegetables

Health.com introduced a three 3-week challenge to boost vegetable intake with easy recipes and strategies. Healthy Table challenges faculty, staff and students to tackle fruits and vegetable in seven days.

Day 1: Stock up. Go for on-the-go fruits that come in their very own pre-packaging. Bananas, apples and oranges are all affordable options that save time and money on plastic packaging.

Day 2: Sandwich makeover. Sandwiches have long been a lunchtime staple. Adding two or three different vegetable to a sandwich counts as a total vegetable serving. Try dark greens like spinach or kale, thinly sliced bell peppers or cucumber peeled into strips with a vegetable peeler.

Day 3: Power to the smoothie. Toss in frozen blueberries with dark greens and yogurt into a blender for a flavorful way to start the day.

Day 4: Put vegetable on a pizza. Next time, try a meat-free pizza with vegetables instead of greasy pepperoni slices.

Day 5: Try a new vegetable. We love Pete’s Fresh Market and the Lisle Farmers Market for affordable, unique produce options. Challenge yourself to buy something new, then find a recipe online.

Day 6: Host a dinner party. Invite your friends over, asking each to bring a side dish with their favorite fruit or vegetable to share.

Day 7: Rethink hummus. Blenders are not just for smoothies. Try mixing canned chickpeas with nuts, red pepper slices or sliced squash for a spin on a protein-packed snack.

Want to try the 21-day challenge? Visit www.health.com to see the three-week challenge!

Healthy Table offers free nutrition information, education, counseling, screening and more. Healthy Table is available for individual sessions, group presentations, health fairs and other health-related activities. We are located in Birck Hall, Room 230.
