Dislike fruits/veggies? make smoothies & stir fry's!
Turn your veggies into smoothies, and have a smoothie with nearly every meal (add different fruits each time). For extra yum, add splenda to your smoothies & soy milk they'll taste like milk shakes! Also, you can add a handful of spinich to most fruit smoothies without being able to taste it!
Also, make stir fry's with your veggies.
I have been buying frozen fruits such as strawberries, or strawberry, peach, banana mix to make frozen fruit smoothies. Fresh bananas also to add to just the plain bag of strawberries. I use water, ice, some artificial sweeteners and crystal light drink mix in a blender and have two of these a day, they are soooo good. A great way to fill up, have your fruit and make it feel like a treat.
