So I am not good about eating enough fruits and veggies, which I know is the best way to get the vitamins I need (other than taking a daily vitamin).  Anyone have some creative ways I can try to add more to my diet (I am a very picky eater).

Here are a few simple ideas on how you can add fruits and vegetables into your day as part of a healthy diet.

For breakfast:

Stir low-fat or fat-free granola into a bowl of low-fat or fat-free yogurt. Top with sliced apples or frozen berries.
Top toasted whole wheat bread with peanut butter and sliced bananas.

Add vegetables, such as diced tomatoes and onions, to your egg or egg white omelet.
Blend low-fat milk or yogurt with frozen fruit for a delicious on-the-go smoothie.

 

For snack:
Eat a piece of fruit like an apple, banana, or plum.
Place a bag of dried fruit in your purse.
Put grapes and banana slices on wooden skewers and freeze for “fruit on a stick.”
Slice a sweet potato, toss with a little olive oil, season as you wish, and bake to make sweet potato chips.


For lunch and dinner:
Ask for less cheese and more vegetable toppings on your pizza. Try onions, mushrooms, and bell peppers.
Spread low-fat cheese and low-fat or fat-free refried beans between two whole wheat tortillas. Brown on both sides in a pan until cheese melts. Top with salsa.
Eat at least two vegetables with dinner.

Add frozen vegetables like peas and broccoli to a casserole or pasta.
Use lettuce leaves in place of tortillas or bread for a wrap.
