We’re teaming up with fellow food bloggers and healthy eating advocates to host a Healthy Every Week Challenge, a month-long initiative to develop healthy eating habits. The plan is to develop a manageable healthy habit each week that will carry through the new year. Join us here and share what you’re eating on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #gethealthy.

Well, our January Healthy Challenge is nearly over, but hopefully the habits formed during the past few weeks will stick around. The goals for each week of January were:

Week 1: Eat Breakfast
Week 2: Eat More Whole Grains
Week 3: Cook at Home
Week 4: Eat More Fruits and Vegetables
Week 5: Stay On Track

But the goal for lifetime healthy eating is to eat breakfast, choose whole grains, cook more at home and eat more fruits and vegetables every day of every week. Did the simple weekly breakdown help you create new healthy habits? We hope so. And from the feedback we’ve received from our participants, it seems that many have seen great success and will continue to think carefully about what they eat, and make the healthful choice most of the time.

Last week’s goal, Eat More Fruits and Vegetables, was challenging for some; as we discovered when we asked fans on Facebook and Twitter that there are quite a few hated vegetables. But before you swear off broccoli, Brussels sprouts and eggplant, try cooking them in a new way. You might be surprised how much better they taste when prepared right. To help you with the last goal of the month (but a big goal for the rest of the year), check out the fruit and vegetable recipes our participants shared, after the jump. And for the Roasted Vegetable Pie recipe pictured at the top, visit The Undercover Cook’s blog for the recipe.
