1. Fresh Vegetables and Dip
“I always recommend fresh veggies whenever possible, so options like carrots, sliced cucumber, zucchini slices, raw broccoli, and tomatoes,” Presicci tells POPSUGAR. Pair them with a food rich in healthy fats like guacamole or an avocado-oil- or olive-oil-based salad dressing to keep you full.
Produce that’s prewashed, bite-size, and ready to eat makes the easiest veggie snack, so consider keeping choices like snap peas, snow peas, or mini cucumbers in your fridge.
Adrien Paczosa, RD, LD, founder of iLiveWell Nutrition, recommends parsing your fresh veggies into bags or containers during meal prep along with a couple scoops of hummus or yogurt dip. “It’s the easiest way to get in some fiber and veggies daily,” Paczosa says.
2. Sweet Potato Fries
Homemade sweet potato fries are an easy way to add veggies to your diet, says Diana Gariglio-Clelland, a registered dietitian at Balance One Supplements, and sweet potatoes are full of vitamins A and C, to boot. Making them yourself helps you control the amount of oil used compared to the deep-fried versions served at restaurants. You can either make baked sweet potato fries, or try them in your air fryer.
