Happy International Women’s Day and National RDN Day; Day 7 & 8 Fruit & Veggie Challenge

What an amazing day! As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, I am lucky to both work with and to know so many wonderful women. I hope you all have taken a moment to soak today in and recognize that this day is about you! 

Here is my fruit and veggie log for yesterday and today. I’ll spare you all of the details and give you the meat and potatoes 🙂


1/4 cup avocado with tomatoes with eggs (1/4 fruit serving)

2 cups romaine (1 veggie serving) with 1/2 cup diced onions, carrots, hearts of palm (1/2 veggie serving)

1/2 guava (1/2 fruit serving)

1/2 cup sauteed broccoli, zucchini, carrots and onions (1/2 veggie serving)

1 cup grapes (1 fruit serving) 

1/2 cup papaya (1/2 fruit serving)

Veggie Servings: 2

Fruit Servings: 2.25

Woohoo! Week 1 was successful! I get bonus points for eating at least 2 servings of fruit and veggies per day!

Wednesday: Today marks the 1st day of week 2… I have to up my fruit and veggie intake to 3 servings EACH person day! I was struggling with 2 so we will see how this goes!

Daily Activity: display your washed fruits and veggies on your desk. I had a facts n’ snacks seminar and ended up with leftover apples, bananas and oranges. I kept them in the bowl and displayed them on my desk.

1/2 cup papaya (1/2 fruit serving)

1/2 cup onions and mushrooms, Sauteed  (1 veg serving)

1/4 cup diced tomatoes and avocado (1/4 fruit serving)

1 cup green grapes (1 fruit serving) 

2 cups romaine  (1 veg serving) with 1 portobello mushroom (1 veg serving), 1/2 cup tomatoes (1/2 fruit serving)

1 cup sautéed spinach and mushrooms  (2 veggie servings) 

1/2 cup papaya “ice cream” (1/2 fruit serving) with 1/2 cup blueberries (1/2 fruit serving) 

Vegetable Servings: 5

Fruit Servings: 3.25

It takes a lot more planning to reach at least 3 servings, but apparently I can do this 🙂
