A healthy plate is easy when you make half your plate fruits and vegetables. It’s also a great way to add
color, flavor and texture plus vitamins, minerals and fiber. All this is packed in fruits and vegetables that
are low in calories and fat. Make 2 cups of fruit and 2 ½ cups of vegetables your daily goal. Try the
following tips to enjoy more fruits and vegetables every day.

1. Variety abounds when using vegetables as pizza topping. Try broccoli, spinach, green peppers,
tomatoes, mushrooms and zucchini.
2. Mix up a breakfast smoothie made with low-fat milk, frozen strawberries and a banana.
3. Make a veggie wrap with roasted vegetables and low-fat cheese rolled in a whole-wheat tortilla.
4. Try crunchy vegetables instead of chips with your favorite low-fat salad dressing for dipping.
5. Grill colorful vegetable kabobs packed with tomatoes, green and red peppers, mushrooms and
6. Add color to salads with baby carrots, grape tomatoes, spinach leaves or mandarin oranges.
7. Keep cut vegetables handy for mid-afternoon snacks, side dishes, lunch box additions or a quick
nibble while waiting for dinner. Ready-to-eat favorites: red, green or yellow peppers, broccoli or
cauliflower florets, carrots, celery sticks, cucumbers, snap peas or whole radishes.
8. Place colorful fruit where everyone can easily grab something for a snack-on-the run. Keep a bowl of
fresh, just ripe whole fruit in the center of your kitchen or dining table.
9. Get saucy with fruit. Puree apples, berries, peaches or pears in a blender for a thick, sweet sauce on
grilled or broiled seafood or poultry, or on pancakes, French toast or waffles.
10. Stuff an omelet with vegetables. Turn any omelet into a hearty meal with broccoli, squash, carrots,
peppers, tomatoes or onions with low-fat sharp cheddar cheese.

Memorial Day Weekend is a great time to fire up the grill! Pick up some Bratwurst from Full Quiver Farm for this recipe. While grilled Brats are very good in their own right, make them "next level" by simmering them in a flavorful bath of beer, mustard and sauerkraut before finishing them on the grill until they are hot and slightly charred. Your guests will love them. Grilled Bratwurst with Beer, Mustard and Sauerkraut recipe
