8 Ways to Follow the Mediterranean Diet for Better Health (Page 4)

Tip 3: Eat veggies all day long.

Most people don’t get enough! Aim for 3 to 8 servings of vegetables a day. A serving size is 1/2 to 2 cups depending on the vegetable. Pick vegetables in a variety of colors to get a range of antioxidants and vitamins. Start your day out with a spinach and Cheddar omelet, have a bowl of vegetable soup for lunch and have roasted carrots and a green salad for dinner. Big green salads are a great way to include several vegetable servings at once, so treat yourself to one daily.

Tip 4: Help yourself to whole-grain bread, pasta, rice and other grains. »
