Here are some ways to add them to snacks and meals
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.
