Sneak In Your Nutrients: Here's How
When it comes to your well-being, fruits and vegetables are your best friends. Nutritionally speaking, they are the superstars of health. The American Institute for Cancer Research and the USDA recommend you eat at least five servings of fruit and vegetables a day. Here are some great ways to start the five-a-day approach: Throw some fruit, yogurt and ice in a blender and start the day off with a breakfast smoothie. Spruce up lunch by adding some crunch to your sandwiches - spinach and other salad greens liven up an average sandwich. Grab a bag of baby carrots to snack on when you get the munchies. Sweet red peppers and grape tomatoes add variety and the antioxidant lycopene. Eat a salad before you dive into your dinner, and if you're making a casserole, then try sneaking in shredded carrots, finely diced onions and peppers, or whatever else you like.
