Is 2016 the year you are going to get healthy by eating more veggies? Eat Smart makes vegetables more exciting with the help of their Gourmet Vegetable Salad Kits, which aren’t just for salads. You can serve the kits as a premade salad—straight up, or lightly stir-fried with your favorite spices. They will add color to your plate and excite your palate.
Here are few tips for adding more veggies to your daily diet in 2016!
Split up your plate.
Keep the healthy eating ‘formula’ in mind every time you eat lunch and supper. Fill your plate half (1/2) full of vegetables, then add 1/4 with lean protein and top it all off with 1/4 grains or starch.
HINT: You can replace grains (starch) with added vegetables. You’ll be amazed at the difference!
Put vegetables on your plate before anything else.
We usually load up on the first food we put on our plate. Put a few handfuls of an Eat Smart Gourmet Vegetable Salad Kit either mixed or simply stir fried with a little oil and spices. We eat with our eyes; as long as your plate is full, you will feel satisfied.
Bag your lunch!
If you build it, your lunch will be healthier. For any lunch whether it is bagged or bought, the vegetable choice is either difficult to pack or is simply non-existent. Eat Smart Gourmet Vegetable Salad Kits are premade and ready to ‘grab & go’. They are convenient for a bagged lunch or to bring along as an add-on when you buy a soup or a sandwich.
HINT: Make your lunch the night before, after dinner. Since you are not hungry, healthier choices will be bagged, and you may even use those leftovers.
Do you have leftover holiday fare in the freezer?
Simply pair the leftover turkey, meat pies or mini quiches with an Eat Smart Gourmet Vegetable Salad Kit, or fry up some veggies for a quick, already made supper meal ‘outside’ of the holiday season.
