Most Americans fall short of reaching the average recommended daily amount of 2½ to 3 cups of vegetables—which means they’re missing out on key vitamins, minerals and fiber. Get more vegetables in your diet by adding them to sandwiches, pastas or stir-fries. Try starting your day with vegetables at breakfast (like in this Greek omelet packed with spinach) and be sure to add veggies to your dinner tonight, like in this salad-topped pizza.

Recipe to Try: Margherita Pizz’alad
