Tip 3. Be a Sneaky Chef

Sometimes, it’s okay to be sneaky in the kitchen. Try these tips to sneak in one or two extra servings into your day. An added bonus? You’ll be adding a new twist to an old favorite recipe.

•   Grate your way to goodness. Shred or grate fruits and vegetables down, or puree them up and see how creative you can get with your favorite recipes. Grated zucchini and carrots do wonders for turkey burgers, meatloaf (like our Classic Meatloaf shown here), and meatballs, adding both moisture and nutrients to the dish.

•   Puree cooked cauliflower, winter squash, or red peppers and stir them into sauces, mashed potatoes, pot pies, or even mac and cheese.
