Advantages Relatively inexpensive, healthy and tasty
They are part of our lives, as every person somehow and somewhere has to eat them. Nature has created them and their benefits and it is up to us to learn how prepare and eat them for a good and healthy life.You presumably all know about the 5 A DAY, we should eat; it is far better that this 5 is not all made up of fruits.
Fruit and vegetables don't have to be eaten on their own to count towards your 5 a day. You can also include any vegetables found in soups, stews, sandwiches and other dishes.Before I get to my recipes, here are a few tips to help you to enjoy your vegetables:
*Always buy fresh vegetables when they are in season. They cost less and artheir flavour is better.*Stock up on frozen vegetables for quick and easy cooking in the microwave.
*If you don't have a lot of time, buy vegetables that are easy to prepare. Pick up pre-washed bags of salad and add baby carrots or cherry tomatoes for a salad in minutes. Buy packages of baby carrots or celery sticks for quick snacks.*Use a microwave to quickly cook your vegetables.
*Vary your choice of vegetables to keep meals interesting.*Try crunchy vegetables, raw or lightly steamed
As normal these are all low fat recipes and suitable for weight loss diets.I love this next dish it is so handy - it can be served hot or cold, on it's own, with grilled chicken or meat, a lovely filling for a jacket spud etc .
