SYDNEY, OCT 13 — Some days we all struggle to get enough fruit into our diet, but personal trainer Kayla Itsines has shared some of her top tips on Instagram for how to hit your five-a-day and more.
Her first tip is to start the day the right way, by including at least one piece of fruit in your breakfast. If you're on the go, Kayla also suggests taking fruit out with you to snack on throughout the day.
In summer, she suggests snacking on frozen grapes, with many followers agreeing that freezing the fruit makes a tasty and refreshing treat. One follower also suggested trying frozen pineapple, saying that it “tastes like ice cream without the guilt.”
Another healthy option according to Kayla is replacing dessert with fruit, Greek yogurt, and honey.
I absolutely love fresh fruit, but I know that for some of you in the #BBGCommunity it can be a challenge to get more fruit into your diet. Here are some ways you can sneak in a few extra serves of fruit: 🍎 🍐 🍇🍉 ✅ Make at least one piece of fruit part of your breakfast, and pack fruit to take with you for on-the-go snacks throughout the day. ✅ Freeze grapes and eat them as a sweet treat on hot days (it's coming up to summer in Australia where I live). ✅ Add fruit into savoury salads with dinner. One of my favourite salads is literally just pear, rocket leaves (arugula), parmesan, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt. It tastes amazing! ✅ Make a fruit smoothie ... you'll be surprised how much fruit you can pack into a serve! ✅ If you're having dinner with friends or family, make a fruit platter for dessert and serve with some Greek yoghurt and honey. What's your favourite way to eat fruit? Let me know in the comments below! @kayscleaneats
She adds that making a fruit smoothie is another way to really up your fruit intake, and something that some of us might not have tried yet is adding fruit to a savory salad.
If you're not convinced, try Kayla's suggestion of pear, arugula, parmesan, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt, which she says “tastes amazing! ” — AFP-Relaxnews
