Quick Weeknight Meals That Pack in the Produce

Easy dinner ideas to help you eat more vegetables.

For years we’ve been told to eat our fruits and vegetables. But as much as we’ve heard that, it just doesn’t seem to be sinking in. Americans still aren’t eating the recommended amounts of fruits and veggies, according to the Centers for Disease Control. For most Americans that's 5 1/2 cups daily.

We live by the "eat more fruits and vegetables" mantra here at EatingWell. So one of the questions we constantly ask is how to add more produce to a dish. In this selection of easy weeknight recipes, we deliver the goods and make over 5 popular meals.
