Eating in a hurry
“Not having enough time is a common reason for not eating well,” says nutritionist and TV chef Fiona McDonald Joyce. “To boost your intake of fruit and vegetables, eat them when it’s most convenient. Buy a selection to keep on your desk, kitchen work surface or in your car.”
Fruit smoothies and juices are a great way to start the day, while vegetable soup, fresh from the chiller or canned, makes a fast and filling lunch. Or why not make a large batch up at the weekend and re-heat during the week? Try our watercress and celeriac soup - lovely and light for the warm summer months. For your evening meal, pre-prepared stir-fry mixes or frozen veg make a quick and easy side dish to grilled meat or fish. “It’s easy – just plan ahead before you shop,” says Fiona.
