  • Add lettuce, sprouts and tomatoes to your sandwich.


  • Nibble on some grapes or raisins.
  • Take along some dried fruit like apricots, prunes, or figs.
  • Choose a glass of juice.
  • Keep cut raw vegetables in water in the refrigerator.


  • Add vegetables to your main dish.

Great tips for eating healthy.  I like that you included a snack and dessert.

Hi Regina,

I don't see nuts in there, and I like nuts.  Pistachios, pecans, walnuts, ...all good foods.  Thanks for the menu planner and best of GREAT success to you always!

It's super-easy when you're a vegan ;)

And what's interesting is that if you eat that much fruit and veggies, you find you aren't hungry for the bad stuff.

I agree with Karen. But, I also cram it all into the NutriBullet--once a day, and I'm pretty much covered.
