What’s dark and leafy and green? ANSWER: Dark leafy green vegetables. That is what our challenge is about this week—Veggies!!!

For every 1 Cup of vegetables you consume this week give yourself 1 point. Be sure it is a full cup. For more information use the guide below.

  • 1 cup of most raw or cooked vegetables
  • 2 medium carrots or a dozen baby carrots
  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 2 cups raw leafy green vegetables (like lettuce). Yep, when counting raw leafy green veggies, two cups only counts as one!

However because dark leafy green veggies are so good for you, we’ve decide to expand our point system. Try adding…

  • spinach
  • kale
  • mustard greens
  • bok choy
  • collard greens

As part your diet this week. Every time you consume one cup from the above list give yourself 2 points.

To Summarize
1 point for every 1 cup of vegetables that you consume. However, if you consume 1 cup of dark leafy green vegetables from the list above, you can get 2 points for every 1 cup.
