Health Tip: Get More Veggies Into Your Diet

Health Tip: Get More Veggies Into Your Diet


(HealthDay News) -- Everyone knows it's important to eat a lot of vegetables. But how can you eat more of these healthy foods without upsetting your routine?

The American Dietetic Association offers these suggestions:

  • Top your favorite pizza with zucchini, tomatoes, mushrooms, spinach, green peppers or broccoli.
  • Lunch on a whole-wheat wrap filled with roasted vegetables.
  • Instead of chips, dip crunchy veggies into some low-fat salad dressing.
  • Throw some veggie kabobs on the grill.
  • Top salads with extra veggies, such as carrots or grape tomatoes.
  • Keep a stash of pre-cut veggies on hand for snacks and meals.
