What if I’m on a special diet or have diet-restrictions?
If you’re on a special diet or have diet restrictions, don’t worry! The #ProduceChallenge plays well with all diets: Gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, organic, conventional, nut-free, no problem! The challenge isn’t about changing your current diet, it’s simply about adding more produce to it, whatever it is. If there’s a produce item on the calendar that you can’t eat, simply replace it with another one you can. As long as you’re eating fruits and veggies every day and trying new and different items, you’re doing it right!
