Healthy Table


Eating more vegetables is a snap

It’s easy to eat more vegetables. Eating vegetables is important because they provide vitamins and minerals and most are low in calories. To fit more vegetables in your meals, follow these simple tips. It is easier than you may think.

  • Discover fast ways to cook. Cook fresh or frozen vegetables in the microwave for a quick-and-easy dish to add to any meal. Steam green beans, carrots or broccoli in a bowl with a small amount of water in the microwave for a quick side dish.
  • Be ahead of the game. Cut up a batch of bell peppers, carrots or broccoli. Pre-package them to use when time is limited. You can enjoy them on a salad, with hummus or in a veggie wrap.
  • Choose vegetables rich in color. Brighten your plate with vegetables that are red, orange or dark green. They are full of vitamins and minerals. Try acorn squash, cherry tomatoes, sweet potatoes or collard greens. They not only taste great but also are good for you, too.
  • Try something new. You never know what you may like. Choose a new vegetable – add it to your recipe or look online for preparation options.

Healthy Table offers free nutrition information, education, counseling, screening and more. Healthy Table is available for individual sessions, group presentations, health fairs and other health-related activities. We are located in Birck Hall, Room 230. For appointments, call (630) 829-6518 or “like” and message us on Facebook at Healthy Table at Benedictine University. You can also follow us on Twitter at @Healthy_table1.
