Health Advice: More Veggies

Q: As a kid I wasn't a fan of veggies and now as an adult I'm still not able to eat the amount I should.  Is there an easier way to get my veggie count in for the day besides drinking a V8?

A: Stop being picky and try preparing your veggies a different way!  Grill, bake, or dice them up into smaller chunks.  Mix them with healthy spices or herbs such as thyme or rosemary.  Add liquids like vinegar and citrus juice to enhance the flavors.  Put artichokes on your pizza, spinach in your mac 'n cheese, choose sweet potatoes fries or add zucchini strips into your lasagna.  Get creative, but when in doubt add in a traditional side salad with light dressing.
