Simple suggestions to increase your consumption of fruits and vegetables
Want to eat more fruit and vegetables? Of course you do! Upping your produce intake is one of the surest paths to better health, but many people simply find it too difficult to do on a regular basis. If you are among them, here are two tips:
-Invest in a transparent bowl
-Keep produce within arms reach
In an article published in Environment and Behavior, researchers tested college students by placing apple slices and carrot sticks in either clear or opaque bowls, which were positioned either at a table near the students or a table two meters away. The participants were told they were welcome to eat the produce, then left alone for ten minutes.
Result: the apples and carrots in the nearby transparent bowls were more likely to be eaten.
