June is "Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month"

Posted by Cecile at Wednesday, June 17, 2009
To all veggie lovers, good news for you. Here are some ways to add more fruits and vegetables to your everyday meals.

Start the day off right with a glass of 100% fruit or vegetable juice. You also might try storing chopped fruit in a blender pitcher every night and then quickly buzzing it into a smoothie in the morning. Then, top your cereal with sliced bananas or strawberries, or whole blueberries.

Add a salad to your lunch and enjoy carrot sticks as an afternoon snack. A sliced apple with two tablespoons of peanut butter is also a delicious way to get fresh fruit and protein at the same time.

Store fruit and vegetables at eye-level in the fridge, or in a bowl on the table. You'll be more likely to eat something if you can easily access it.

Buy only seasonal fruits and veggies! It will help decrease the cost that fresh produce can incur, and they'll be sweet and ripe. Some of the best summer fruits are cherries, peaches, nectarines, blueberries, plums, and watermelon. Great summer veggies include corn, green beans, tomatoes, and zucchini.
