More Veggies

Eat more veggies.  If you focus on what to add to your diet, rather than what to take away, the good, fresh, healthy foods will naturally push out the not-so-good foods. Vegetables are a good place to start. Right after surgery, vegetable portions may need to be smaller because of higher protein needs, but are still important to include in your diet. Vegetables are full of vitamins, minerals and fiber, and low in calories. Eat them fresh from the farm whenever possible or steam them. Fresh veggies smeared with a wedge of Laughing Cow Cheese Light make a great snack. Add veggies to your morning eggs. Make sure to include a good serving of vegetables with lunch and dinner.
