One of the most important things that you must make sure you’re doing whether you’re watching your weight or not is get enough vegetables and fresh fruits into your daily diet. These foods are loaded with nutrients, high in fiber, and will also pack in plenty of antioxidants to keep your body healthy over the long haul and completely disease free.
In addition to that, they’re also very low in calories, which literally makes them a dieter’s dream come true.
Yet, many people still aren’t eating enough.
Let’s look at a few simple tips that you can use to enhance your intake and see faster progress with your diet.
Add Them To Your Morning Bowl Of Cereal
First, consider tossing in some fresh berries, a sliced apple, or a sliced banana over your morning bowl of oatmeal or cold cereal. This is a fast way to boost the fiber content even higher and get some fruit in to start your day.
Berries are especially high in antioxidants, so focus on them as often as possible.
Whip Up Smoothies
Another fast and easy way to get more fresh produce in is to make a smoothie a part of your day. Don’t feel limited to just eating fruits here either. Smoothies can easily be prepared with vegetables as well such as cucumbers, spinach, or celery.
Get creative – find unique combinations that you enjoy.
Make A Stir-Fry
Consider preparing a stir-fry for dinner. Stir-fries are an excellent way to boost your vegetable intake since you’ll easily take in two or more servings per meal.
Try and use a variety of different vegetables in the stir fry for good nutritional variety and to add more taste and flavor. This will reduce the chances that you have to add a high calorie sauce.
Eat Them Raw With Dip
Finally, always be sure to have some sliced raw veggies on hand to serve up as a quick snack when you need something to munch on.
Eat them with a home-made dip prepared from salsa and Greek yogurt and you’ll have a complete snack in minutes.
So there you have some fast and easy ways to boost your produce intake and see faster success. Put these to use and you will be on track to great results.
