Lighten Up Your Diet - Eat More Fruits and Vegetables



Summer is here. We now have longer days and warmer weather. What a perfect time to lighten up your diet. Time to pick up more foods that make your body feel great and put down the things that are not so good.

Summer is the time to do away with the heavy stews, soups and casseroles. Start taking advantage of the seasonal summer foods, fruits and vegetables. Not only do they deliver the best flavors, but they are loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Diets rich in fruits and vegetables may reduce the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases. Fresh fruits and vegetables can also provide the energy to fuel your days without saturated fats, sodium, or sugar. More importantly, they are more abundant in summer - therefore the cost is less.

5 Easy Tips to Help Lighten Up Your Diet

  • Make half of your plate fruits and vegetables.
  • Choose a variety of different color fruits and vegetables. This gives your body a wide range of valuable nutrients.
  • Add fresh fruits and vegetables to your favorite meats and salads. Not only does this make your meal unique, but it adds a variety of vitamins and minerals.
  • Eat fruits and vegetables for snacks. Have them pre-cut and pre-packed.
  • Buy frozen fruits and vegetables for later usage. They are just as nutritious as fresh, but provide convenience and longer storage time.
