Healthy Eating Tips - Fruits & Veggies

Posted Aug 24 2008 1:33pm
Choose a wide variety of fruits and veggies. Try a new fruit or veggie every week. Keep those that you enjoy available for meal time and for snacks
Eat a variety of veggies. Don' t forget dark green, leafy, and orange veggies, AND dry beans and peas
Eat low density foods. Emphasize fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat milk- these all have lots of nutrients, and fewer calories
Eat more fruits and vegetables. People who do have a reduced risk of chronic diseases, including stroke, heart attack, diabetes, and certain cancers
Eat more fruits, vegetables, and legumes. These great sources of fiber help lower cholesterol and reduce risk of heart attack (and they keep you regular!)
Focus on fruits. Eat a wide variety of fresh, frozen, dried, or canned fruits, and take at least 2 cups each day
Plan your fruits. For 2000 calories, plan 4-5 servings. Sample servings: 1/2 cup juice, 1/4 cup dried, 1/2 cup fresh, frozen, or canned, or 1 whole fruit
Plan your veggies. For 2000 calories, plan 4-5 servings. Sample servings: 1 cup raw leafy veggies, 1/2 cup raw or cooked veggies, 1/2 cup vegetable juice
Stick to your fruits & veggies goal. Have a goal for number of servings each day - at dinner, add one or two more servings if you haven't met your goal
Vary your veggies. Eat more dark green veggies(broccoli, kale), orange veggies(carrots, sweet potato, squash), beans (pinto, kdiney, black, garbanzo), and peas
