Reframe meal planning
Eat your veggies! It’s a phrase we’ve all heard, yet most of us struggle with how accomplish. Getting your 10 servings a day doesn’t have to be a chore, especially with options including fresh, frozen, canned, dried or even 100% juice. Getting more fruits and vegetables into each meal can be easy, interesting and tasty!
Sometimes re-framing your idea of a meal can be all it takes to get you going. In past newsletters we’ve talked about making vegetables the center of the plate. This month we want to go a step further, think of veggies as vessels to contain, and even portion control the rest of your meal! Have you thought about stuffing a banana? Filling a potato or padding a squash with mushrooms, spinach and ground chicken? If not, then you should! It makes for a great presentation, but also ensures produce is the star of everyone’s plate.
