TRY THE SALAD BAR.

Take advantage of your grocery salad bar, which provides pre-cut varieties of fruit, vegetables, and beans. Eat them as a snacks or toss into a salad with less prep time.

Keep them in sight. Store fruits and vegetables on the top shelf of the fridge,or on the kitchen counter or table in a colorful arrangement. If you see them, you will eat them more often.

DON'T TOSS IT.

If produce is about to go bad, freeze it for later use in smoothies, batters, soup, and stir-fry instead of throwing it out.

EAT SEASONALLY.

Fruits and vegetables are cheaper and more nutritious when you buy them in-season. They taste better too!!

BUY UNRIPE PRODUCE TOO


Bring home both yellow and green bananas, for example. Eat the ripe stuff now as the rest ripens later in the week. You'll have fresh food without making multiple grocery runs.

SAVOR A SMOOTHIE.


Smoothies, made with any combination of fresh or frozen fruit, low-fat milk or yogurt, ice, and 100% juice are tasty ways to fit more fruit into your day

CHOOSE CANNED.

Canned fruits (without syrup) and veggies (with low sodium) are just as nutritious as fresh. Plus they're easy on your wallet and your schedule, making cooking a breeze.

ADD FLAIR WITH FRUIT.

Raisins, apples and tangerine slices add sweetness and texture to salads. Apples complement pork, pineapple is great with fish, and orange slices are perfect with chicken.

DIP IT.....

Instead of dipping your chips and veggies into creamy dressings, make a healthy dip out veggies...hummus, chunky salsa, guacamole, and roasted red pepper dips will help you meet your daily quota.
