We know the work day can provide a bit of a block for you trying to fill #halfyourplate so we want to challenge you to change that! From January 16th – January 27th we want to see you filling #halfyourplate at your breakfast, lunch or dinner in the work place. The challenge is simple: take a top down photo of your meal showing that half your plate is filled with produce and tweet or Instagram it with the hashtag #halfyourplate and #HYPworkchallenge. To keep things going challenge a friend or co worker to do the same in your past! You can participate more than once and selected posts will be featured in a future blog post.
To help you out, here are some of our favourite easy lunch recipes!
