If you're like most adults in the U.S., you're probably not getting enough fruits and vegetables in your diet. According to the CDC, only 10% of adults in the United States meet the recommended amount of vegetables, and 12.3% meet the recommended amount of fruit. But what if you're a picky eater and can't seem to ramp up your healthy eating protocol? Fortunately, there are plenty of tasty alternatives out there. It's about a combination of the right supplements and flavorful, nutritious food to get your health back on track. Here's how to get started.

1) Throw Together a Smoothie

Vitamins can go a long way toward getting healthier and making up for any deficiencies. But you shouldn't exclusively rely on vitamins as an alternative to a healthy diet, even though they can be a powerful way to boost your health, weight management, and gym goals.

Start bolstering your nutrients with delicious morning smoothies. Focus on the flavors you love most, whether berries or Greek yogurt. You can also slowly add in a little kale or spinach and see how well it disguises the flavor to pack in even more nutrients.

2) Blend Protein Powder Into Milk

Are you having trouble finding meat you like that isn't fried and battered? Switching to as many lean proteins as possible is always a recommendation. But meat isn't the only way to consume more protein. To increase protein and nutrition, eat more Greek yogurt and add a drizzle of honey and chia seeds.

You can also add a scoop of Whey Protein Powder to your milk to turn it into a delicious drink. Choose one of our tasty flavors, including chocolate, fruity cereal, vanilla ice cream, cookie dough, or strawberry cheesecake.

3) Turn Your Collagen Powder Into Pink Lemonade 

Collagen is an essential protein necessary to help build bones, skins, muscles, tendons, ligaments, corneas, and teeth. Over time, our bodies can age and produce less collagen. To get on top of the deficiency, you can add more Collagen Powder to your daily diet. Enjoy it mixed up and unflavored in water, or turn it into an icy cold drink with our pink lemonade flavor.

4) Switch to Whole Grains

Whole grains are a necessary part of a good diet and are high in fiber, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. But despite the benefits whole grains offer, you don't need to consume bland bran options. 

Brown rice isn't too heavy on flavor and can easily be mixed in with white rice to bolster your whole grain nutrients. You could also experiment with Farro, which boasts a rich, nutty flavor and is rich in fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Include some lemon juice or look for recipes with mustard, salt, and olive oil to add more flavor to your dish.

5) Enjoy a Gummy Candy-Flavored Pre-Workout

If you're interested in adding more fuel to your workouts, you can do it without traditional vitamins. Instead, you mix a scoop of our Pre-Workout gummy flavored powder with 8 ounces of water and drink it 30 minutes before training. If you prefer citrus, it also comes in juicy orange. Both flavors are packed with supplements that increase energy and blood flow while regulating heart rate and breathing.

6) Sip on a Tropical Storm BCAA

BCAAs are our body's branched-chain amino acids and are essential to a healthy diet. The body naturally produces them, aiding in the growth of lean muscle and accelerating recovery time after exercise. Mix up our BCAA powder with water and choose from blackberry lemonade, sour apple, or tropical storm flavors. You can also enjoy it with intermittent fasting protocols.

7) Focus on Lean Meats

If you enjoy meat-based meals, you can get leaner by rethinking what you're eating. Lean beef, filet mignon, pork loin, chicken breast, and salmon are all a few healthy alternatives. 

What if you're a burger and fries lover? Consider mixing veggies into your ground hamburger meat. A whole-grain bun and sweet potato fries add more nutrients to dinner than the traditional burger and fries you're accustomed to.

8) Mix an Organic Green Supplement with Water

If you're not naturally a veggie lover, it's not as easy to get the green, leafy options you need. Unlike fresh fruit, vegetables can taste bitter to someone who is a picky eater. Trying to sneak more greens into a fruit smoothie can help, but there are alternatives, such as our Mixed Berry Organic Greens. They're a tasty way to get in more nutrients that help detoxify the body, reduce blood pressure, and lower blood sugar. Just mix a scoop with 8 ounces of water.
