There are lots of good reasons to eat more vegetables: a diet rich in veggies can help you control blood pressure, maintain healthy cholesterol levels, protect your bones, plus a whole lot more. Plus, vegetables (particularly vibrant-colored produce) are packed with essential vitamins and minerals, as well as fiber, which will help to keep you feeling satisfied on few calories. A good guideline is to fill half your plate with fruits and vegetables at each meal. But studies show that many of us have trouble getting our daily recommended "dose" of vegetables, which for most Americans is 2 1/2 cups per day. During our 14-day Eat More Vegetables Challenge we'll give your daily ideas and delicious recipes to help you get more produce onto your plate.
