The 175 Vegetable Servings Challenge

So I had another brilliant idea for a project--actually eat the 5 recommended servings of fruits and vegetables per day in April. Although I love them, vegetables are the hardest things for me to work into my diet. And as we are moving into the cheap and fresh season, I though I'd make an effort to broaden my horizons, try new recipes and shift my diet a bit in a more healthful direction.

April has 30 days, and five a day equals 150 servings. However, I know myself and concentrating on getting enough on a weekly/monthly basis is easier for me to manage rather than hitting 5 a day. The extra 25 servings are a special challenge--if I eat that many, I'm buying a reward, to be determined later.

Stay tuned, as I will be posting weekly on the what I ate and how I tried it.

I like this idea, a lot. I might try it too.
