How to Eat More Fruits & Vegetables

By EatingWell Editors

Improve cholesterol and overall health by adding more fruits and vegetables.

Add Chocolate

Transform fruit into an extra-special treat with chocolate. Strawberries are naturally sweet and juicy—but you can elevate their appeal with chocolate. Melt a couple of tablespoons of semisweet chocolate chips in the microwave (on Medium power) and then… dip! The strawberries and the chocolate both provide heart-healthy antioxidants; plus, you’ll get fiber and vitamin C from the fruit. (If you prefer traditional chocolate-covered strawberries over strawberries dipped in melted chocolate, place the dipped berries on a piece of wax paper on a baking sheet and refrigerate until the chocolate is firm.)
