Health Tip: Eat More Fruits and Veggies

Health Tip: Eat More Fruits and Veggies

09/24/12

(HealthDay News) -- You should fill half of your plate with fruits and veggies at each meal, experts say. But that can be a challenge.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these creative suggestions for boosting consumption of fruits and vegetables:

  • Keep a big bowl of fresh, brightly colored fruit in your kitchen.
  • When you have a recipe for pasta, pizza, soup, salad, casserole or sandwiches, double the amount of fruits or veggies that are called for.
  • Puree, shred or grate veggies into dishes such as rice, meatloaf, mashed potatoes and pasta sauce.
  • Spice up your old recipes with a new vegetable.
  • Use a big lettuce leaf instead of a tortilla or bread for a wrap. Stuff it with fresh veggies.
