As we add fruits and veggies to our diet to meet the five (or more) a day goal, let’s look at lunch.
- Salad bar? Stack on the dark green leaves and other vegetables instead of so many of the extras like eggs, bacon and cheese.(keep the dressing ON THE SIDE)
- Add frozen veggies to any pasta. (Even the canned stuff.) You get more good stuff and more flavor too.
- Skip the fries and add a vegetable. Most all restaurants will do that. (Even the fast food places offer a value size salad.)
- SMACK! Have a V8!
- Have fresh fruit for desert.
