Ready to lower the calorie count of your favorite dishes? Adding pureed vegetables to soups, stews, and casseroles isn’t just a trick for getting kids to eat better. It works for adults, too. You can also add more whole vegetables to everyday meals, like sandwiches and salads. Or just make it a point to use more of the space on your plate for vegetable sides instead of calorie-dense meat. Because vegetables are naturally low-calorie and filling, you’ll eat fewer calories overall but still feel full.
