12 Weeks of Wellness: Boost

I love vegetables! I think they are crisp and refreshing and vegetables provide nutrients vital for health and maintenance of your body. So add a few more to your diet throughout this, the 5th week on our journey toward wellness.



Tips:

There are many ways you can introduce more veggies into your diet. I will list a few here but for a printable list you can hang on your refrigerator click here.
  • Buy vegetables in season, when they are cheapest and at the peak of their flavor.
  • Stock up on frozen veggies that are simply a microwave zap away from eating.
  • Plan meals around vegetables, like a stir-fry, add other food to supplement.
  • Try a veggie salad for a meal.
  • Add shredded zucchini and carrots to meatloaf, casserole, quick bread and muffins.
  • Make your vegetables more appealing by serving them with dip.

This week boost: make sure to eat at least three vegetables each day
