HEALTHY EATING TIP | APRIL 2017

HEALTHY EATING | VEGETABLES

AS PART OF A HEALTHY DIET, HALF OF YOUR PLACE SHOULD BE MADE UP OF FRUITS AND VEGETABLES.* A HEALTHY EATING PLAN INCLUDES A VARIETY OF VEGETABLES FROM ALL OF THE FIVE VEGETABLE SUBGROUPS – DARK GREEN, RED AND ORANGE, LEGUMES (BEANS AND PEAS), STARCHY AND OTHER. OPTIONS INCLUDE ALL FRESH, FROZEN, CANNED AND DRIED VEGETABLES IN COOKED OR RAW FORMS, INCLUDING 100% VEGETABLE JUICES.**

FOR ADULTS, TRY TO EAT 2 1/2 CUPS OF VEGETABLES A DAY (BASED ON A 2,000-CALORIE PER DAY DIET).

TIPS TO HELP YOU EAT MORE VEGGIES:

> Buy fresh vegetables in season when they cost less and are most flavorful.

> Buy easy-to-prepare vegetables like pre-washed bags of salad greens.

> Add baby carrots or grape tomatoes to salads. Buy packages of baby carrots or celery sticks for quick snacks.

> Add kale, spinach, beans, or peas to mixed dishes, soups or rice dishes.

> Include a green salad with dinner every night.

> Add shredded carrots or zucchini to meatloaf, casseroles, quick breads and muffins.

> Include chopped vegetables in pasta sauce or lasagna.
