Today starts a new series on “Easy ways to eat more veggies (and fruits)”. So for the next few Meatless Monday’s we’ll give you tips on how to get move veggies into your busy lifestyle.
Prep ahead. This one is key: Make sure your fridge is stocked with ready-to-eat veggies. Whether this means cutting carrot sticks by the bag-full or buying baby carrots, do what it takes. Celery, carrots, bell peppers, cucumbers, and sugar snap peas are some of our favorite fresh vegetables. Another tip is to put the veggies out so you can see them, use clear containers in the fridge or place them on the counter so they’re in eye-sight. Have your favorites ready so when you’re hungry, you grab them. I also find its easier if I wash grapes and cut melons so that I have a healthy snack when I’m on the go or waiting for dinner.
