Happy National Fruits & Veggies Month! This year’s theme, Every Time You Eat, Have A Plant®, offers an opportunity to think about how every time we pack lunch, shop, order, snack or brunch we can remember to Have A Plant® to elevate our taste buds and our mood!
We know from behavioral science that if we want someone to do something it has to be easy. When something makes you feel good, you want to do it again. When something tastes good, you want to eat it again. This is where we can tap into moments that are already happening, so it’s easy for everyone! We all have our staple, go-to meals – whether it’s tacos, pasta, burgers or breakfast for dinner. Let’s lean into those automatic meals and add one (or two) more things – fruits and veggies. Essentially, Every Time You Eat, Have A Plant®! Here are some easy ways you can do so:

By keeping plants top of mind and at the center of our plates, not only are we Celebrating The Roots Of Our Food, but we’re also boosting our health and happiness. And who doesn’t want more of that?!
