If one of your New Year's resolutions was to adopt healthier eating habits, then head to your favorite grocery store near Radwyn Apartments to stock up on fruits and veggies. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), incorporating fresh produce into your diet is an easy, effective way to manage your weight. Read these tips, then head over to the CDC website for the complete article.

Don't Mess With a Good Thing
Enjoy your veggies as nature intended: raw. Frying or breading vegetables adds unnecessary calories and fat and minimizes their nutritional benefits. Similarly, avoid fattening dressings or dips. If you prefer enjoying your vegetables warm, then steaming is your healthiest cooking option.

Replace Snacks With Fruits and Veggies
Swap that trip to the vending machine for a baggie of veggies or fruit that you brought from home at Radwyn Apartments. Produce is low in calories but high in fiber, so you'll feel full longer. Complement your snack with a low-fat, high-protein dip, like hummus. 

Add Fruits and Vegetables to Recipes
If you have a favorite recipe that you make one a regular basis, consider swapping out some of the ingredients for vegetables. For example, substitute grated zucchini for pasta in your favorite Italian dish, or replace a handful of your morning cereal with sliced bananas.
