Whole Foods has some suggestions that make your food preparation even healthier.

1. Instead of frying foods in oil, sauté, caramelize and deglaze using broth, coconut water, juice or wine.

2. When packing a snack, fill up with produce that has lots of fiber: broccoli, carrots and berries are good picks.

3. When preparing beans, greens and grains–cook more than you need.  Now you’ve got fixings for soups and fillings for wraps.

4. Entrees become fiber-filled when you add vegetables (even frozen) to pasta, meatloaf, stews and your burger patties.

5. Go healthy fats by choosing plant-based foods such as nuts, seed and avocados.
