Eat more? Yes, please!
Nonstarchy vegetables are full of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and phytochemicals. And with so few calories and carbohydrate, everyone can enjoy more. The American Diabetes Association recommends filling half of your plate with healthful nonstarchy vegetables. It’s yet another reason to pack more produce into your meal plan!
Fruits are nutrient-dense choices, too. Because fruit contains more carbohydrate, have a small serving of fruit on the side with your meals if your plan allows. Or, it can also make a great snack or sweet treat.
Whether it’s vegetables or fruit, most people could use a few new ideas. We’re sharing 20 new ideas to eat more fruits and vegetables in-season and year-round—just in time for spring.
Some of our new tips and recipes this month feature ways to use seasonal spring fruits and vegetables. Keep an eye out for in-season picks at your local grocer or farmer’s market, such as artichokes, asparagus, broccoli, fennel, peas, radishes, snow peas, spinach and apricots.
