Fruits & vegetables
Cover half your plate with fruits and vegetables. That advice goes for just about everyone. And all fruits and veggies are good fruits and veggies. But our ratings make it easy to load up on the most nutritious superstars.
What's in season
Food Find: Rutabagas and turnips
Turnips and rutabagas don’t get much attention. And that’s a shame. The unsung pair may not measure up to kale or other nutrient-packed leafy greens. But when it’s cold outside and you’re hankering for mashed, baked, or roasted potatoes, give these guys a whirl.
Food Find: Delicata squash
It's officially fall. Have you had any pumpkin yet?
Miso-Glazed Tofu & Squash
6 in-season fruit & vegetable winners
Food Find: Pears
Nearly every diet or healthy eating pattern—from Mediterranean to low-carb to DASH—wants a piece of them. But most of us are falling short...and missing out. Who can resist garlicky sautéed ’shrooms, candy-sweet roasted tomatoes, or a creamy kale Caesar salad?
Why fresh fruits & veggies are the best snacks
Go for fresh or frozen, not dried. They’re loaded with water and low in calories per bite.
Eat more fruit
When it comes to fruit, it’s not just about the vitamins and minerals (plenty) or the calories (few). Just think about a sweet summer peach, a wedge of juicy watermelon, or a succulent mango. You’ve got yourself a bite that’s pretty much perfect.
