Have you wanted to make a change? Maybe drop a few pounds or add more exercise to your schedule? September is Fruits & Veggies–More Matters Month and there’s never a better time to start than right now!
Many of us often think of January as the ideal time to begin a new routine, but September also marks new beginnings–a new season and a new school year. As summer fades into autumn it provides an opportunity to either start something new or re-energize your existing commitment to a healthy lifestyle. Fruits & Veggies–More Matters has plenty of resources to help you reach your goals, whether they are adding more fruits and vegetables to your day, reaching or maintaining a healthy weight or becoming more active. Here are a few topics you may find interesting:

It doesn’t have to be a major undertaking, just do something different (healthy!) to celebrate Fruits & Veggies–More Matters’ favorite month. It could be as simple as trying a new fruit or vegetable each week. My plan is to aim for three meatless meals each week–I’ll report back in a future blog and let you know how this is going!
