National Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month!

June is National Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month, a great time to consider if you're including enough fruits and vegetables in your eating plan. Here are easy ways to add more fruits and vegetables: ? Wake up to fruit: make a habit of adding fruit ”fresh, frozen or dried ”to your morning oatmeal, ready-to-eat cereal, yogurt or toaster waffle. ? Stock up: Fill your fridge with raw vegetables and fruits ”"nature's fast food" ”cleaned, fresh and ready to eat. ? "Sandwich" in fruit and vegetables: Add pizzazz to sandwiches with sliced pineapple, apple, peppers, cucumbers and tomato as fillings. ? Top your pizza with lots of veggies. Try broccoli, spinach, green peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms and zucchini. Fruits and vegetables are a great way to get the most nutrition out of your calories. They are packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber and other nutrients. Just beware of portion sizes. Even low-calorie foods can add up when portions are larger than you need.
