I challenge myself to eat a serving of 3 or more different colored veggies at each meal. This accomplishes a few things: 1) I get my daily 5+ servings of veggies and 2) it helps keep me full on fewer calories! Some examples: red, green, yellow and orange bell peppers (great for stir-frys, scrambles, and fajitas): broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and eggplant: or onions, zucchini, yellow squash and tomatoes!

If you are going to be eating out or going to a party, try eating
a serving of vegetables before you go if you can. Many restaurants serve large portions of the entrees but don't always include vegetables other than potatoes or a side salad. Parties and cookouts may not have a lot of healthy food available. By eating a veggie serving before going, you won't be so hungry when you arrive and can avoid bread baskets & less healthy options, and get a daily serving of veggies. You can take part of your entree home for lunch the next day if you want.
