30 Day Challenge

 

Through the month of April, in honor of the spring season, we are going to celebrate VEGETABLES!  Your challenge for the next thirty days is to eat a variety of vegetables, including trying new veggies that you have not eaten before.  Each week turn in the attached sheet (or you can e-mail it to Lisa Garon) to share what new veggies you have tried, the variety of veggies you have eaten and your favorite way to prepare them.

Rules:

  • You must eat 4 different vegetables a day.
    • Example: A salad with lettuce, carrots, and cucumbers and a side of steamed broccoli.
    • You must eat a variety of 8 different vegetables for the week.
      • Example: A salad consisting of 3 vegetables, steamed broccoli and cauliflower, raw carrots and celery, and a baked yam.
      • You must eat 1 new vegetable a week (This could be a vegetable you may never have eaten or one you have not eaten in a very long time).
        • Example: Kale or Turnips
        • Tiers & Rewards…

          • Tier 1: there must be a variety of 12 vegetables for the month.
          • Tier 2: there must be a variety of 16 vegetables for the month.
          • Tier 3: there must be a variety of 20 vegetables for the month.
          • Vegetables may not be bought canned or frozen.  They must be purchased in the fresh state. Organic is best.
          • By May 1st, all your sheets must be turned in.
          • All participants will receive prizes…
            • Tier 1 participants will receive a copy of Food Rules by Michael Pollan
