When adding fruits and vegetables, proportion and variety are the keys. Rose breaks down her tips into three easy steps.

  • Variety: eating different foods from meal-to-meal and day-to-day.
  • Moderation: eating when you’re hungry, stopping when you’re full and not eating because you’re bored, sad, or lonely.
