Vegetables are an important part of our diet. They provide a variety of vitamins and minerals and most are low in calories, which means you can eat lots of them guilt free! Many vegetables can be purchased in multiple forms: fresh, frozen and canned. They can also be prepared in more than one way such as grilling them, roasting them, steaming them, or eating them fresh. Canned and frozen vegetables are great to keep stocked so you never run out, and they last for a long time. If you are wanting to add more vegetables to your day, consider incorporating them into your snacks as well as in your meals. Try making this easy chicken pot pie recipe at home. You can choose a variety of vegetables and even swap out for different vegetables each time you make this dish!
