You are so welcome. I signed up to get emails from FruitsandVeggies a few years ago. When I got an email yesterday and went on the site, I thought about this team and had to send a link. I am so glad you checked it out. There are so may recipes and menus that are helpful.
Enjoy those fruits and veggies.

I love fresh veggies.... celery, cauliflower, cucumbers, carrots (only a few) radishes, any bell pepper, zucchini or whatever is in season. These are all good with hummus. If you add finely diced veggies..., onions, peppers, cilantro and lemon you can get more veggies into your diet as well. Yummy

I love to make a salad done in large chunks of tomatoes, onions, cukes, carrots,mandarain oranges and whatever else is around and sometimes put in a brine of vinegar, spices and sometimes olive oil they taste great that way and i am likely to eat them as a meal/snack that picking up chips
also I take veggie/fruit supplements to help me with those days i do not get enough in
Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much

I grew up with a huge vegetable garden, so love fresh vegetables. Also grew with with lots of fried stuff. Not a dig to fried stuff or my mother's cooking -- could not have had a better mother or childhood.
Anyway, in adulthood, here's some veggies that are easy, tasty, great for snacking and basically no calories but lots of vitamins and fiber:
grape tomatoes snap peas Daikon radishes (look like huge white carrots) (sometimes called Japanese radishes) cucumber slices
