Now that we are officially in the holiday season, Jake wanted me to remind you of the importance of eating 5-7 servings of vegetables (and some fruit) every day. A serving equals 1/2 cup or the size of your fist.
Fruits and vegetables are loaded with nutrients that can help fuel you through the hectic and often stressful holiday season.
In addition, vegetables fill you up and can help you eat fewer high calorie foods like cookies, mashed potatoes, and egg nog. Make sure you fill your holiday plate with loads of different colorful veggies.
Vegetables are best raw, steamed, lightly sautéed in avocado oil, or roasted. Avoid veggie dishes swimming in butter (a little is ok) or heavy sauces like cheese or hollandaise.
