Tip: Eat More Fruits And Veggies

(here's how!)



Hey there.  Nice blog!  anyway just a quick question for you....  do you have any tips on how to eat more fruits and veggies?  Thanks soooo much.

Wow, another good (but tough) question!  Well, I'll try and answer this question best I can.

Fruits and veggies.  Some people love 'em.  Some...don't.  Here's what I've found really works for consuming more fruits and veggies:

~ Try having one fruit or veggie with each meal. 

~ Try this quick and easy recipe from Rachael Ray for quick and easy pickles.  It has a minimum amount of salt (yay) and lots of garlic (great for the immune system), plus let's not forget good ole dill (a healthy herb that supports strong bones). 

~ Start using more apples.  Especially around falltime I like to make crisps and other desserts using apples, but to get you started, here is a whole website about using apples. 

~ Make applesauce using this yummy recipe. (Tried and true!)

~ Freeze chunks of bananas and blend them in a blender for yummy banana ice cream.  Honestly, this stuff is so good you won't know you're eating fruit.

~ Make smoothies.

~ Whip up some Eggplant Parmesan (try this recipe).  Do you know that eggplant is so good for your brain and cardiovascular health? 

~ Resort to the good ole carrot and celery sticks with ranch dip for a delicious afternoon snack. 

~ Shred or grate veggies into a tupperware dish to throw into salads, etc.  Store in your refrigerator and you have veggies at your fingertips all week.

~ Stock up on frozen veggies.  Eating frozen corn kernels is sooo delicious.

~ Gobble up some frozen grapes.  Simply wash and freeze grapes in Zippies, then enjoy.

~ Create gourmet salads and store in a zippie bag.  (Do not add dressing...yet.)  Whenever you are ready for a salad, pop out a bag, pour in dressing of your choice, and enjoy.

~ Frozen fruit.  I love it.  You will too.

~ Consume dried fruit (opt for as unsweetened as possible).
