When it comes to fruits and veggies, more is what matters. After all, they are an excellent source of vitamins and fiber, they help maintain weight and energy, and they aid in disease prevention. For Fruits and Veggies—More Matters month, here are a few ideas for introducing extra produce into your diet.

  • Slice half a banana to put on cereal in the morning.
  • Top pancakes or waffles with fruit instead of syrup.
  • Add spinach to scrambled eggs.
  • Put extra tomatoes, lettuce, and onions in tacos and burritos.
  • Add extra vegetables to canned soup.
  • Add frozen mixed vegetables to pasta sauces, casseroles, or rice dishes.
