Everyone agrees. It’s in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s My Plate food plan. It’s in Weight Watchers, the Biggest Loser Diet, the Atkins Diet, the Mediterranean Diet, vegetarian diets, and many other diets and food plans. Eat more vegetables.
Fortunately, I love most vegetables. However, due to a busy schedule, I don’t always get them prepared and eaten.
Here are some tips I’ve recently come up with for eating more vegetables:
Buy spinach that’s been washed and trimmed.
I used to buy spinach at my local co-op that needed to be washed and trimmed. Sometimes it didn’t get prepared, and I had to throw it away. The co-op also has organic bulk spinach that’s been washed. It’s much easier to use. I wash it again when I get home. I also buy 1 pound containers of organic spinach at Costco.
