7 Days, 40 Plant Foods

Last week I was meeting with our team of nutritionists and we were talking about a challenge we had heard of.

The challenge was to eat 40 DIFFERENT plant WHOLE foods in 7 days.

It’s important to note that we are not talking about flours of any kind..it has to be a whole or mostly whole version of the plant. And then repeat that over and over again. Essentially, to make it a habit.

Challenge on!

How would someone go about doing this?

I went shopping that weekend and I started in the produce section. I chose about 25 different vegetables and fruits. And then I bought some nuts, seeds, legumes, quinoa, and wild rice. That brought me to 30! Uh-oh!

I went back to the produce section and got more veggies.

Plant foods kale and quinoa salad with chickpeas

I hope this gives you some food for thought about how to get in more and more plant foods into your diet.

I am not saying don’t also eat meat, fish, eggs, etc. The more variety you get, the better.

And the plant foods have many, many benefits.

I would love to hear what your list looks like. Please share!
