Vegetables and fruits can lower blood pressure, prevent some types of cancer, lower risk of digestive problems, reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. They can even improve your blood sugar, which can help keep your appetite under control.
Here are some simple recommendations for adding more vegetables to your day.
Add one new vegetable to your weekly grocery list.
Try purchasing a frozen option of your favorite fruit or vegetable once each week.
Add a vegetable serving to your dinner 5 to 7 days per week. You can try new vegetables or repeat your favorites, but variety is a plus.
