How to Eat More Fruit and Veggies Every Day

September 23, 2015 4:41 pm

If we’re being honest, most people would say that they would much rather have a bowl of ice cream than a bowl of vegetables. If you still struggle with eating your recommended daily amount of fresh fruit and veggies, these simple tips will help make it a bit easier.

  1. Make a smoothie. To jump-start your fruit and veggie intake first thing in the morning, blend them into a smoothie to start your day. Add any fruit that you have around the house, and even toss in some spinach or cucumber for a boost of veggies that you likely won’t even notice.
  2. Keep frozen veggies on hand. If you’re unsure of how to prepare vegetables with your meal, keep a few bags of frozen vegetables in the freezer. That way, you can simply pop them into the microwave come mealtime.
  3. Think more veggies than protein. If you don’t like to weigh and measure everything that you eat, keep in mind that your vegetables should always be the largest portion on your plate.
  4. Have fruit for dessert. If you have an insatiable sweet tooth, switch out your usual chocolate for a plate of fresh fruit. It packs the same sweet punch, and by making this healthy switch, you won’t have to skip dessert entirely when you’re on a diet.

I Love Tacos in Pembroke Pines: More Bang for Your Burrito

September 16, 2015 8:13 pm

I Love Tacos keeps Pembroke Pines patrons happy with big burritos served in a festive atmosphere. This “hole in the wall” location next to a mattress store might not look like much from the outside, but once you get through its doors, you’ll find a lively environment with colorful walls, lights, and paper banners.

Yelp reviewers love the wet burritos, not just for their flavor, but also for their value. These huge burritos can serve two, or you can save half for another meal later. So don’t be put off with slightly higher prices because you’re getting a lot of bang (or burrito) for your buck!

Have a seat at one of the colorful tables and your server will be with you shortly to take orders for food, beer, wine, or margaritas. Be prepared for a bit of a wait during peak dinner times.
