Add healthy foods to your recipes

Learning to incorporate healthy foods into recipes can make it easier to get the variety of nutrition you need. Megan Larson, RD, LDN, a clinical dietitian for ARAMARK Healthcare at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore, recommends trying some of these ideas:
  • Mix rolled oats into meat loaf.
  • Bake vegetables such as potatoes, carrots, tomatoes and squash with fish or chicken breasts.
  • Add frozen or fresh vegetables to canned soup.
  • Steam vegetables along with pasta and serve with tomato sauce.
  • Use chopped fruit in breads or muffins.
  • Add chopped apricots, apples or pears to a green salad.
You’ll soon find eating the recommended 2 cups of fruits and 2-1/2 to 3 cups of vegetables daily is easy and fits into a lot of your favorite recipes.
