How Eat More Vegetables: Tip #7

Move vegetables to the center of the plate. Both figuratively and literally. First, the figurative. When planning the week's menus, start with the vegetable, then plan the meal around it, as in, "Tonight we're having roasted asparagus. Let's see, that would taste great with roasted salmon." (Recipe for Roasted Salmon & Asparagus.) Now the literal. Place a large portion of vegetables on the plate. Now squeeze on a little protein.
