Recipe of the Day or a
Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day

Add more veggies to your meals.

The month of June is the National Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Month.  One of Kerry's Produce Tips is to Choose Menu Items that are Full of Vegetables: There are so many lunch and dinner choices that are loaded with vegetables. Try to acquire a taste for stir fries. They are simple to prepare and once you have the basic idea down, you can vary your meat choice and choices of veggies. Buy a huge variety of veggies and choose 3 different ideas for a different stir fry daily. Pair them with different herbs and meats. The trick is to avoid overcooking any of the veggies, because crunchy is what you want. Cook the veggies separately. Rather than using oil, it’s easy to stir fry by adding a bit of water. Keep adding more water to avoid burning! This is a quick meal that is much faster than fast food!

See Kerry's Stir Fry Recipes on her Healthy Diet Habits Website!
