How to Curb Your Appetite Using Fresh Produce

June 24, 2015 6:28 pm

Fresh produce is delicious, and it’s also filled with nutrients that are essential to your overall health. If you’re a newbie to the world of cooking with produce, these snack and meal ideas will show you how to fill up on fresh fruits and vegetables instead of your usual salty snacks.

  1. Opt for fruits and vegetables to stay fuller, longer. Although eating carrots instead of potato chips might seem like a lighter snack, produce actually keeps you feeling fuller for longer than other foods. That’s because processed foods are deficient in fiber, while fruits and vegetables are filled with fiber.
  2. Fill your breakfast with fresh veggies. Instead of eating a carb-heavy breakfast, fill a simple omelet with your favorite fresh vegetables for a boost of vitamins and nutrients.
  3. Make a simple salad for lunch. If you usually grab a greasy fast food meal because you don’t have time for lunch, try topping fresh tomato and cucumber slices with tuna or chicken salad for an equally quick (and healthy) lunch.
  4. Have a snack. Replace your usual snack with apple slices, carrot sticks, or celery plus your favorite dips and spreads.
  5. Stir-fry your dinner. If you’re unsure of how to prepare veggies for dinner, simply stir-fry your favorites in a low-fat sauce with some lean protein.
