that are established now matter both to today and their future. I would like to incorporate at least one more serving of vegetables daily. Do you have any suggestions for howI can do this without really noticing it! Thanks, Charlotte.
Hi Charlotte – You can always eat more vegetables. In the rush of life, a few days can slip by where we might not have consumed enough vegetables.
Establish some regular habits such as drinking a vegetable juice or green smoothie, adding a salad to your lunch, or ordering a side of vegetables when dining out. Or when you’re at home prepare vegetables and a salad, grate vegetables into your main dishes or take raw vegetable sticks with a homemade pesto or hummus as a snack. With habits like this, you’re able to amp up your vegetable intake while still juggling the many aspects of life.
Providing healthy snack alternatives for your teen could be enough to turn them away from junk food.
