• Stock your freezer with frozen vegetables to steam or stir-fry for a quick side dish or add to a soup to make it heartier.

• Make a habit of adding fruit to your morning oatmeal, yogurt or smoothie.

• Serve a large colorful salad made with dark leafy greens, a variety of fruits and vegetables, and a lean protein as your dinner entrée one or two times a week.
