Make Half Your Plate Fruits and Vegetables
Fruits and vegetables are great sources of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and colorful plant pigments, called phytochemicals. Eating more fruits and vegetables as part of an overall healthy diet is associated with decreased risk of heart disease, certain cancers, type 2 diabetes, and obesity.
Bored with your choices? Try one new fruit or vegetable a week. Sneak fruits and vegetables into new places, like broccoli in your mac and cheese or orange slices in a salad. Get a small container of vegetables from the salad bar and mix away!
