Boost Yoour Fruit & Veggie Servings

This Sparked Me!

To boost my fruit and vegetable servings I 'double up' during meals. If a half cup of peas is a serving, I'll take a whole cup. I also make my meats & pastas the smaller 'sides' to the dish. You have a much healthier and balanced meal that way.

    I love the idea. I'm checking as "I Like This"!

Remember peas are more of a starch than a vegetable. Find veggies that are less starchy and high in all kinds of vitamin, minerals, etc.

    Brilliant! I wish I'd said that!
