Look for foods that look good to you! I tend to gravitate towards lots of colors (eat the rainbow). Be open to trying new fruits and veggies if something is on sale. That’s how my clients have discovered new foods they enjoy.

I splurge on already cut-up veggies and fruits, so they are super easy to access and readily available in the refrigerator. The more convenient food is, the more likely I am to eat it.

I pair fruit with peanut butter. Try it with apples, bananas, dates, and strawberries (on toast). And veggies with hummus like cucumbers, peppers, celery, and carrots. I'm against broccoli generally, but it is an option if you're a broccoli fan.

I buy prepared salads because they have tasty add-ins, and all I have to do is grab a fork. I also add veggies like spinach or riced cauliflower in my smoothies. The flavors can get masked by the other ingredients, so it’s a great way to eat those items if you're not a fan of the taste.

Begin by prioritizing consistency by leveraging convenient options such as frozen or canned fruits and frozen, canned, or microwaveable vegetables. Once eating these foods becomes a regular part of your life, consider mixing things up and adding more fresh options.

I pick out my favorite colors and decide each day which color to have Ex. Monday is red food (grapes), and Tuesday is yellow food (banana). Enjoy a rainbow of food to get a variety of nutrients.
