Consuming More Fruits and Veggies: Reducing Friction, Creating Habits
With National Eat More Fruits and Vegetables Month coming up in June, you might wonder how you can kickstart your health journey this summer by consuming more nutritious foods. One effective way to make a lifestyle change is by creating good habits.
According to studies of habit formation, obstacles like time, distance and effort create “friction” that makes it difficult to achieve our goals. By reducing this friction, we can more easily make good choices that will benefit us in the long run – including consuming more fruits and vegetables.
One way to reduce friction when trying to eat more fruits and vegetables is by making it simple and easy to do on a regular basis. Drinking 100% juice is exactly that. In addition, 100% juice is convenient and affordable, as well as abundant in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants your body needs to properly function. It is also available all year long.
Keep reading below for tips and tricks on making 100% juice your new healthy habit.
Drink Juice On-The-Go
Whether you’re dropping your kids off at school or rushing to your Monday morning meeting, 100% juice is a quick and convenient way to kickstart your day. Grab a bottle of orange, pineapple or grapefruit juice to begin your morning with essential vitamin C.
Increase Hydration with Juice
Are you looking to increase your hydration but find it difficult to drink plain water throughout the day? Mix 100% juice into your daily routine. With most juices containing around 80% water, 100% juice can help you meet your hydration goals while adding flavor to your diet.
Add Flavor and Nutrients to Food
Eating healthy can be difficult, but 100% juice can help. Create flavorful and nutrient-dense dishes that you’ll look forward to eating by adding a citrusy juice to a vinaigrette or marinade – like this Orange Balsamic Chicken with Spinach.
