Heart-Healthy Eating Tips


How To Eat More Fruit And Vegetables

The American Heart Association recommends filling at least half your plate with fruits and veggies. This will help you get the recommended 4 ½ cups of each per day. The good news is that all produce counts. This means canned, fresh, and frozen varieties can help you reach your goal. When buying canned, dried, or frozen vegetables and fruit, compare food labels. Choose the products with the lowest amount of sodium and added sugars.

Breakfast

  • Eat melon, grapefruit, berries, or any other fruit., Or mix them with Greek yogurt.
  • Add bananas, raisins, or berries to your cereal.
  • Drink a small (6-ounce) glass of juice. Be sure it’s 100% fruit or vegetable juice without excess sodium or sugar. Avoid “fruit drink,” "cocktail," or “punch.”
  • Add chopped-up vegetables to your eggs or potatoes. Try onions, celery, green or red bell peppers, or spinach.
  • Have a smoothie that has fruit and veggies (like spinach).

Lunch

  • Have a fruit or vegetable salad with lunch.
  • Put vegetables on your sandwich. Cucumber, tomato, peppers, lettuce, or avocado are good choices.
  • Eat a bowl of vegetable soup. (Choose the product with the lowest amount of sodium or make soup from scratch.)
  • Have a piece of fruit or raw veggie sticks instead of chips.

Snacks

  • Keep raw veggie sticks handy. Eat green or red bell peppers, green beans, celery, or carrots.
  • Carry dried fruit in your purse or pocket, such as raisins, dates, or dried apricots.
  • Have any fresh fruit: grapes, apple, banana, orange, kiwi, etc.
  • On hot days, eat a bowl of frozen fruits or vegetables, such as grapes, pears, or bananas.

Dinner

  • Have a fruit or vegetable salad with dinner.
  • Add a side of steamed or microwaved vegetables. Frozen veggies are great!
  • When cooking your meal in the oven, put in a whole potato, sweet potato, or yam simultaneously.
  • Add chopped vegetables when cooking soup, stew, beans, rice, spaghetti sauce, and other sauces. Onions, garlic, and celery are good options.
  • When making rice, add some frozen peas for the last three minutes of cooking.
