- One of the simplest changes you can make towards a healthier diet is to add more vegetables to your daily meals. Recommended guidelines encourage 1 to 3 servings per day depending on your age, gender and activity level. Aim to eat between 1/2 to 1 cup of raw or cooked vegetables per serving. Vegetables not only provide value vitamins but also dietary fiber which helps keep us feeling full longer and moves things through our systems a little easier. If you're on a specialized diet or taking medications that limit your intake of certain vegetables, ask your doctor for a handy list so you can keep tabs on how much you are allowed to consume per day. Find your favorites and vary the way you eat them by cooking them in different ways.
