I add diced zucchini in enchiladas, salads and really most any recipe that calls for veggies. I dice them up and a heat them with pam in a skillet then add the remaining ingredients for that dish, they add fiber and bulk to my low calorie meals, without changing the taste. Just a neat trick to get more veggies in each day.

Make a big pot of soup once or more times weekly. This is the time to add all those left over veggies - even new ones you never really enjoyed! It really fills you up before lunch or dinner. Even a small bowl during snack time. Gets those veggies in. Loads of books on low-cal soups from Amazon, etc.306
