Health & nutrition tip

Keep a Secret Stash

If potatoes and iceberg lettuce were the star vegetables of your former diet, figuring out how to increase and diversify your veggie intake can be challenging at first. Fresh vegetables don't keep long, and all that peeling and chopping is a pain when you're crunched for time. Keeping a frozen-vegetable stash is an easy way to add more of a nutritional punch to your meals. Steam a quick side dish or toss a variety of veggies into whatever's on the menu — soups, pasta sauce, omelets — get creative! Choose frozen veggies without the sauces.
