or veggie snacks - my favorite (just posted on another thread) is sugar pees lightly sauteed in olive oil & basil. Just cook them till they turn bright green. YUMMMM!!!!

I personally like cooked broccoli better than raw. Saute it in oil and garlic (both of which are good for your heart too.)
When ordering pizza, always put some veggie on it (mushrooms, spinach, broccoli, peppers, anything.)
Same for pasta - get primavera.
Always add lettuce and tomato to your sandwiches - every little bit helps.

Also, I love making fritattas, but with loads of veggies sauteed in Pam or a little bit of olive oil, and add egg beaters and broil until done. YUMMY!

A good dip to go with raw veggies like peapods, broccoli, celery, and bell peppers is:
1 pkg light or fat free cream cheese (softened)
1/4 cup light ranch dressing
1/2 cup salsa
Just mix together and enjoy!
A good grilled veg is asparagus. Lightly drizzle them with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill until lightly browned on all sides. YUM! My fi wouldn't touch asparagus before I grilled them like this, now he requests them and eats them like they're french fries.

For lunches I usually eat a healthy frozen meal or low sodium soup. I will add about a cup of frozen veggies (some variety mix) to them to make them healthier....and keep me more full.
I also pre bag baby carrots on Sundays so they are easy to grab when I need a snack during the work week.
For dinner we sometimes grill veggie kabobs with whatever we have left in the fridge. It's usually a combo of pepper, onions, brocoli, tomotos....whatever you have. It's low fat, since you don't have to use any oil....and I just sprinkle grill seasoning or Mrs. Dash salt free stuff. Yummy

I can't figure out how to add mine. It's making me crazy.
