For the month of June we are counting down 30 Days to Summer with registered dietitian Stefanie Senior. Each day she will reveal a new tip to help you reach your summer health goals. Join the conversation through Live Right Now's Facebook Event, "30 Days to Summer" and share your own tips and successes or post questions and feedback. We will enter your name into a draw for a free Skype nutrition consultation with Stefanie.

June 16th ... 15 days to summer...

Include at least 1 cup of vegetables at both lunch and dinner. Vegetables are packed full of fibre and water, which will fill you up and ward off hunger between meals. Non-starchy vegetables in particular are very low in calories and are considered "freebies" on my weight loss plan. Examples include: lettuce, spinach, leafy greens, peppers, cucumber, onions, zucchini, asparagus, green beans, broccoli and cauliflower.
