  1. Eat at least 5 different fruits and vegetables a day

  2. Try a healthy food you've never tasted before

  3. Avoid all food that comes in a package

  4. Challenge yourself to drink only water as your beverage of choice all day

  5. Learn a new healthy recipe from someone you know

  6. Ask someone in another generation or culture about what food s/he eats to stay healthy

  7. Pick one of your favorite foods and find out where all the ingredients come from
