We all know we should be eating more vegetables, but when it comes to dining out, aside from ordering a salad or veggie entrée, meals tend to be lacking in the vegetable department. So don't be shy. Ask your waiter or waitress if you can add veggies to your meal. Ask for specific veggies that you love, or ask them to surprise you with a mix. Add them to your pizza, pasta dishes, stir-fries, sandwiches, wraps, burgers, and eggs. Chinese, Thai, and Italian restaurants are usually happy to accommodate your request, but it can't hurt to ask when you're dining at other places, too. You may have to pay a little extra for added veggies, but it's so worth it considering your mouth will love the tasty variety, and your body will appreciate the extra fiber and nutrients.
