IT’S EASIER THAN YOU MAY THINK TO ADD EXTRA SERVINGS OF FRUITS AND VEGGIES TO YOUR DIET. CHECK OUT SOME TIPS YOU CAN USE FOR EVERY MEAL OF THE DAY:
*Add fresh raspberries or fresh, sliced strawberries to your cereal or oatmeal.
*Switch out your morning coffee for a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice once a week. It’s a great way to start your day and limit your weekly caffeine intake!
*Why not add extra veggies to your sandwich? Romaine hearts, tomatoes, and cucumber go great with a traditional mayo or vinaigrette
*If you’re more of a grazer during lunchtime, try hummus with fresh veggies for a lighter meal.
*Try adding a side salad or if you want to be a super sneaky, add some chopped and sautéed vegetables to your pasta sauce! Zucchini, carrots, onion, spinach and bell peppers are great in a marinara!
*Get creative with the pizza toppings! Pineapple, zucchini, cauliflower, broccoli… so many possibilities! And “designing” your own mini pizza is a great way to get the whole family involved. Make it colorful!

*Add some green to your smoothie! Try adding an avocado for a great nutritional boost and a creamy texture. Seriously—it’s delish!
