Color Your Plate

Add an extra veggie or fruit to each meal.

Getting healthier isn’t about denying yourself everything you love and only eating prescribed foods. You can start by substituting a few ingredients, but trying them in a new, deliciousway, like putting avocado in your sandwich instead of cheese.

CHALLENGE TIPS

From USDA’s MyPlate.gov

  • Plan some meals around a vegetable main dish, such as a vegetable stir-fry or soup. Then add other foods to complement it.
  • Try a main dish salad for lunch. Go light on the salad dressing.
  • Include a green salad with your dinner every night.
  • Shred carrots or zucchini into meatloaf, casseroles, quick breads, and muffins.
  • Include chopped vegetables in pasta sauce or lasagna.
  • Order a veggie pizza with toppings like mushrooms, green peppers, and onions, and ask for extra veggies.
  • Use pureed, cooked vegetables such as potatoes to thicken stews, soups and gravies. These add flavor, nutrients, and texture.
  • Grill vegetable kabobs as part of a barbecue meal. Try tomatoes, mushrooms, green peppers, and onions.
