We all need to eat 2 1/2 to 6 1/2 cups of fruits and vegetables in our diet daily, depending on your daily caloric intake.  This can get tricky sometimes because we are busy people, but it can be done and it does not need to be hard.  In fact, adding more vegetables and fruits in your diet can be as simple as just making a few changes.

If you are looking for a quick and easy to add more vegetables to your diet, this recipe is a great way!  This vegetable mix is so versatile!  I use it on my bagel for breakfast with cream cheese,  as a "salsa" with tortilla chips or multi-grain crackers, mixed in with scrambled eggs, as a wrap with hummus for a quick healthy lunch, just to name a few.  While I am not a fan of canned vegetables, I think that adding any additional vegetables into your diet is better than nothing at all.  Plus, when summer comes around and fresh vegetables are again available for lower cost in Michigan you can always switch to fresh :)
