Starting Small: Incorporating More Fruits and Vegetables Incorporating more fruits and vegetables into your diet is essential to a plant-based lifestyle and can significantly impact heart health. Aiming to fill half of your plate with these nutrient-packed foods at each meal is a simple yet effective strategy. Experiment with a variety of fresh, frozen, and canned fruits and vegetables. This allows you to find your favorites and add diversity to your meals. Smoothies, salads, stir-fries, and other dishes provide great opportunities to incorporate these plant-based foods and boost nutritional intake. Exploring new fruits and vegetables you haven't tried before expands your palate and provides a wider range of nutrients. Additionally, joining a community-supported agriculture (CSA) program ensures a regular supply of fresh, seasonal produce. By starting small and gradually incorporating more fruits and vegetables, you can make sustainable changes to your diet and improve your heart health.
