    easier way to get in fruits and vegetables?


    Im not really getting enough fruits and vegetables in my diet, but id like to. I was thinking about getting a food processor and throwing a bunch of greens into that, as well as making fruit smoothies. Any better ideas? Or certain ones that you like to eat with chicken or fish.

    As of right now i eat 3 bananas a day, 2sweet potatoes, and maybe a can of green beans. Ive never really been good at picking out vegatables to mix with my chicken or fish.

    I throw some berries in the oatmeal or shakes even ..

    Brocolli .. Lil olive oil in a pan sauteed for a few minutes .. Very yummy .. Instead of green beans ..

    You can get citrus fruit already cut up, packed in h2o .. Grapefruit etc .. At Wal-Mart ..

    I try to make a steak or chicken salad couple times a week .. They also sell different leafy mixtures now .. Personally Iceburg seems like a waste of chewing to me ..
    Fresh spinach, walnuts or almonds , oranges and warm chicken with a light drizzle of lo-fat italian dressing makes for a nice meal

    They even have a drink called Green Goodness by Bolthouse Farms .. Its not too untasty (kinda expensive) supposed to be 8 servings of fruits and veggies .. Just drink your veggies??

    this is going to sound weird but its actually good. take some FROZEN broccoli, and mix it with a scoop of protein powder some splenda and just enough almond milk to allow it to mix right and put it in a blender and it will make a healthy protein packed milk shake. The frozen broccoli acts as an ice cream base you honestly cant taste the broccoli (add some sugar free chocolate syrup if you need a little more chocolate flavor. i know it sounds nasty but try it once youll be suprised.
