Cooking healthfully means getting plenty of fruits and vegetables in your diet and most people don’t get enough! Aim for 4 to 13 servings a day. A serving size is 1/2 to 1 cup depending on the fruit or vegetable. We know that not everyone is a fan of this principle, so that’s why we like recipes like Hamburger Buddy. Very finely chopping onion, mushrooms and carrots in the food processor is not only fast—it makes the vegetables hard to detect for picky eaters. They also form the base for the sauce of this ground beef skillet supper. Enjoy!
