why I ate 57 different veggies in 21 days

Want more energy? Want to feel more vibrant? Want to make your skin glow? One guaranteed way to give your body a big boost is to pack in more nutrients by increasing the diversity of plants and fruits that you eat.

This month I decided to up-level the diversity of my plant-based diet. I challenged myself to get as much diversity in a plant-based diet as I could. I emphasized eating organic (almost always), eating locally grown (mostly) and eating in season (lion’s share). The result: an unbelievable boost in energy and bragging rights to my health-conscious friends. 🙂 Here’s the 57 different veggies and fruits I had in the past 21 days:

  • apples
  • artichoke
  • arugula
  • Asian greens
  • asparagus
  • avocado
  • basil
  • bean sprouts
  • beets
  • blackberries
  • bok choy
  • broccoli
  • broccoli rabe
  • butter lettuce
  • cabbage
  • carrots
  • cauliflower
  • celery
  • chard, baby
  • cilantro
  • corn
  • cucumber, persian
  • cucumber, regular
  • dandelion greens
  • dill
  • eggplant
  • english peas
  • garlic
  • grapes
  • green onions
  • jalapeno
  • jicama
  • kale
  • kalettes
  • leeks
  • lemon
  • lime
  • mango
  • Meyer lemon
  • mint
  • onion
  • parsley
  • pineapple
  • Portobello mushrooms
  • ramps
  • red kale
  • seaweed
  • serrano chili
  • shallots
  • shiitake mushrooms
  • spinach, baby
  • strawberries
  • sugar snap peas
  • sweet potatoes
  • tangelo
  • tomatillos
  • tomatoes
  • turnip, baby
  • watercress
  • Yukon potatoes

Take the challenge. Start making a list of all the different fruits and vegetables that you eat. Then try to grow the list by ten or twenty plants over the next 21 days. Try a new vegetable  or fruit you’ve never had before. Try eating veggies at each meal of the day. Then report back. Let me know your successes!
