In the Kitchen with Fareway: Drink/Eat Your Veggies!

It's something we've heard since childhood - EAT YOUR VEGGIES! On Tuesday, June 18th during Good Morning Quad Cities, Dietitian Caitlyn Ferin from Fareway Food Stores showed us how to easily incorporate more fruits and vegetables into breakfast, lunch, and dinner:

  • Breakfast: Make a smoothie and incorporate any fruit or veggie you like! You can find many different smoothie recipes at
  • Lunch: Make a salad ahead of time. Simply layer your favorite salad ingredients in a mason jar, making sure to put the dressing on the bottom. When it’s lunch time, flip it over, give it a shake and enjoy.
  • Dinner: Veggies can easily be incorporated into veggie night. Add chopped spinach or kale into your cooked pasta or layer it into lasagna. If you have picky eaters, try pureeing the veggies into the marinara sauce so no one can see.
