Strive For 5: Salad on Open-Faced Sandwich

I found the news that only 14 percent of the adult population in the US eats at least five servings of fruits and veggies depressing. I know there are days where I fall short too, but I am striving for five servings daily.

One way I have started to incorporate a serving of greens into my day is to place them on top of an open-faced sandwich. Think of it as a salad, minus the dressing, and sandwich, minus a piece of bread, all in one. This is a simple way to use up all those salad greens you picked up at the farmers market. How to you add produce into your daily diet?

I always put lettuce and/or cucumber on my sandwich. I mix fresh fruit into my cereal. I usually fix a side of salad for dinner. And there's always an apple in my purse.

Aw, Fit, why did you have to taunt me with this photo just before lunch time?!? Yum! As far as sneaking produce in, I always put fresh fruit on my cereal/oatmeal in the morning; I mix bananas into protein shakes; I sneak spinach into strawberry banana smoothies; and I try to always order a side salad when eating out, so that I can fill up on veggies. Also, no matter what I eat, whether it's pizza, pasta, quesadillas, sandwiches, etc., I always order my entree with vegetables instead of meat. It tastes better and is healthier, too.
