You should be eating at least 3 to 5 servings of fruits and vegetables each day. Fruits and vegetables are very low in saturated fat and total fat, and have no cholesterol. A diet high in fruit and vegetables may also help keep cholesterol levels low. So, fruits and vegetables are great substitutes for foods high in saturated fat and cholesterol.

When shopping, remember to:

Buy fruits and vegetables to eat as snacks, desserts, salads, side dishes, and main dishes
Add a variety of vegetables to meat stews or casseroles or make a vegetarian (meatless) main dish.
Wash and cut up raw vegetables (carrot, broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, etc.) and store in the refrigerator for quick and easy use in cooking or snacking.
Serve fresh fruit for dessert or freeze (banana, berries, melon, grapes) for a delicious frozen treat.
Display fresh fruit in a bowl in the kitchen to make fruit easier to grab as a snack.
To keep naturally lowfat vegetables low in fat and saturated fat, season with herbs, spices, lemon juice, vinegar, fat free or lowfat mayonnaise or salad dressing.
