Healthy Eating Tip: Go Green Every Other Bite


If you are a well trained carnivore or a pasta freak, you might have a little trouble remembering to eat your veggies. Veggies full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytonutrients and fiber – that is a rather compelling list don't you think? They are also filling and low in calories, especially if you don't smother them with butter.

When sitting down to lunch or dinner, make sure that your plate contains a vegetable and that you also have a serving of salad. Make sure that salad is not over dressed either.Then make every other bite a green one. Keep alternating between your protein and starch with something green. This will definitely increase your veggie intake and help you to fill up on low cal foods.

Remember, it is important to eat a wide and colorful variety of veggies. So if you made cauliflower instead of broccoli, or you prepared bright orange squash instead of green beans you can still eat "green" every other bite. Just make every other bite salad or veggie and you are good to go.
