In my role as a wellness coach I am constantly encouraging clients to eat more fruits and veggies. How can I not? Filled with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and health promoting phytonutrients, they are nutrient dense, super foods. Yet while a number of my clients claim to like a variety of fruits and vegetables, most are not even close to eating the recommended 4-5 servings/day each (total of 10 servings) of fruits and vegetables.
So in addition to simply to doing the obvious, eating an apple or adding a mixed salad to your daily menu, I recommend slipping in these nutritional powerhouses whenever you can. Below are just a few examples:
The majority of my clients report that adding fruits, vegetables, and herbs and spices to foods they are already eating is easy and results in a dish they enjoy more thanks to the added color, flavor, and texture. A win-win because not only do the meals taste better, because any added fruit, veggie, herb or spice increase the nutrient density of a meal.
