Weight Management

All diets rich in vegetables are not created equal. Sure, you can make the commitment to a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, but a plant-based diet can be as simple as having a meatless meal once or twice a week according to Atlantic Health System nutritionists. If that still seems daunting, try preparing dishes with a smaller piece of beef or pork and larger portions of leafy greens. Experiment with different methods of cooking, such as grilling or roasting, to enhance texture and unlock flavors in fruits and vegetables you once thought unappealing.
