Five Easy Way to Eat More Plants!

Overwhelmed by the conflicting info on what is a “healthy” diet? Whether you’re in weight-loss mode or fulfilling your resolution to eat healthier in 2020, the recommendation always includes eating more plants.


Great. But how do I do this?


  1. I make extra dinner, veggies and meat, both.  So I eat leftover dinner for breakfast. Not for everyone, for sure. But my body really likes it.
  2. I eat a meal-size salad for lunch. Pretty much every day. In addition to the veggies (usually arugula and radicchio), I add rotisserie chicken and sprinkle pomegranate or berries on top. Except when it’s cold and then I...
  3. Make (or buy) a veggie-filled soup.  Butternut squash soup. Chicken tortilla soup with lots of bell peppers and fire-roasted (canned) tomatoes. Beef stew rich with carrots, onions and I use sweet potatoes.
  4. When I travel, I always pack baggies of nuts and dried fruit. I know this isn’t what we traditionally think of as “plants”... but they are! The dried fruit gives me energy and the roasted/salted pecans (yum) give me good fat and protein.
  5. I serve my daughter Farm&Oven mini muffins for breakfast, and she gets over a ½ cup of veggies in each serving! She’s well on her way before school gets started

Don’t diet this year. LIVE! And live healthier by incorporating vegetables slowly into your diet, until they become a mainstay. As a way to get you started I’m offering free trial packs of our delicious soft-baked mini-muffins. All you pay for is shipping.
