10 Sneaky, Simple Ways to Eat More Veggies

10 ways to eat more vegetables

We all know we should eat more vegetables, but it’s often tough to eat enough of them. 

Here are 10 ways to eat more vegetables:

1. Smoothie – eat a smoothie for breakfast or snack. Add a cup of spinach and some berries. You won’t taste the spinach, I promise.

2. Chop in advance – spend 30-45 minutes and chop all your vegetables for the week. Good ideas are carrots, celery, sweet peppers, etc.

3. Cook in advance – I steam all my broccoli and cauliflower for the week all at once. I store in glass containers and it lasts about 5 days.

4. Salad – obvious, but often forgotten. Make a point to have one large salad every day that includes at least 3 vegetables.

5. Mashed Cauliflower – replace mashed potatoes with mashed cauliflower. You won’t even notice the difference. Try this recipe.

6. Omelette – add onion, mushrooms, peppers and tomatoes to your eggs.

7. Stir Fry – an easy meal to make; just fry up some chicken breast, add vegetables and some seasoning.

8. Double the veggies – when making a recipe that calls for vegetables, double the suggested amount.

9. Be sneaky – grate, shred or puree veggies and see how many meals you can sneak them in to. Works well in burgers, meatloaf, soup, and sauces.

10. Eat seasonal vegetables – head to your local farmers market and pick up what’s in season. It will be super fresh and give you some variety. A quick online search will give you a recipe if you need.

BONUS: One of all-time favorite recipes: Use What You Have Quinoa Bean Salad. The base is quinoa and beans and then just add in a whole bunch of veggies. Yum!
