Expert Tips

Vegetables offer a host of nutrients including vitamins A, C and folate to name a few. Be sure to get at least 3 to 5 servings of veggies daily.

If fresh basil isn’t available, add 1 1/4 teaspoons dried basil leaves.

Look for low-fat or fat-free salad dressing. If you can’t find the Parmesan flavor with less fat, try creamy Italian.
