It’s Not Too Late To Join The 2016 VegOut Challenge

VegOut began in Houston three years ago to combat obesity in children. The idea is to offer fun ways to eat healthy with veggies.

Every year in March, the Recipe for Success Foundation challenges Americans to eat 30 different vegetables in thirty days.  It’s called the VegOut Challenge.

Houston City Council member David Robinson and his staff took the challenge last year.  He said he tried to eat vegetables that start with all the letters of the alphabet. 

“Starting with avocado or artichoke and getting all the way down to zucchini in the 26 days, and then we had a few more to turn the corner and get back,” Robinson said.  “And so it was fun and we got challenged, not so much on Zs; zucchini was easy, but there’s some letters in there that are tough to find a vegetable for.”

The initiative has since expanded nationwide. 

Participants can use the smartphone app or register online to follow the progress of their thirty day VegOut Challenge.
