Mix it up!

Need help breaking away from your “go to” fruits and vegetables and mixing it up a little? Here are a few tips that might be helpful:
- Fruit smoothies are a great way to pack in a lot of fruits in one delicious drink.  Make one for breakfast and the fiber from the fruit will keep you full for hours. Did you know you can also put vegetables in your smoothies? Try adding in a handful of spinach and kale and watch your smoothie turn a beautiful green color. You will hardly taste the
vegetables but still get all of the benefits from them!

- Sneak vegetables into your favorite meals. Add peppers and carrots into your spaghetti sauce or mix pureed cauliflower into your mashed potatoes. These are sneaky ways to incorporate more nutrients into your diet while still eating the
foods you love!

- Try adding a different fruit or vegetable with every meal. Doing this will ensure that you are eating a balanced meal and will keep you from getting bored with the same foods.
