ways-to-sneak-more-veggies-into-your-life

Trying to be healthy can sometimes feel like a full-time task, but it doesn’t have to be! When you start creating habits like buying the right foods, drinking more water, and adding vegetables and fruits to your diet, you’ll find that it becomes a lifestyle and starts to feel easier. If you and your family are looking for ways to sneak more veggies into your life, use some of our ideas here and you can always check out our website for more healthy recipes that will help you stay on track with your nutrition plan!

1. Soups

It really doesn’t matter what soup recipe you’re using, you can always dump some chopped veggies into your soups to get an extra serving or two of nutrients. Or how about even a handful of that superfood spinach? If you’re in a pinch at eating a store-bought soup or at the cafeteria, carry some chopped veggies with you in a snack bag so you can have them ready at any time!

2. Smoothies

The good thing about smoothies is that you don’t usually even taste the veggies when they’re mixed in with other healthy foods like fruits, Greek yogurt, chia seeds, honey, and other popular smoothie ingredients. Add a cup of chopped kale, or some celery sticks for added fiber to your next smoothie and go a little greener than you normally do each morning!

3. Snacks

The best part of having veggies as a snack is that you can pair them with other healthy treats like hummus or low fat dips. Easy ones to transport are crowd favorites like carrots and celery, but how about some cherry tomatoes, broccoli bites, or bell pepper strips? Get colorful and change it up so your lunch bag or snack pack doesn’t get boring.

4. Sandwiches

You don’t have to get rid of the meat to enjoy more veggies on your sandwich! How about adding some grilled eggplant slices or cucumbers? Keeping a dish of these in the fridge make it easier for you to add to your sandwich instead of that piece of cheese. Or add some shredded beets or shredded carrots to your tuna salad for a colorful and healthy kick to your sandwich!

5. Side Dishes

Unfortunately, side dishes tend to be the heavy carbs and we just load up on more of what we don’t need, and less of what our bodies need – veggies! Try making your side dishes veggie friendly like our Roasted Garlic & Parmesan Asparagus which is so packed with flavor and nutrients, it will be your new favorite.ways-to-sneak-more-veggies-into-your-life

6. Breakfast Dishes

Whipping up a family breakfast this weekend? How about tossing some chopped zucchini or tomatoes into those egg dishes instead of heavy meats and cheeses? It’s a good way to use leftover veggies that you didn’t use during the week and get another serving of vegetables to start the day. Yum!

7. Desserts

Say what?!? Yeah, we know that desserts are the last place that you think you’ll want to have veggies, but never fear…we have some great ideas for you. How about trying a batch of our Carrot Oatmeal Cookies? They’re full of fiber, and loads of nutrients from the carrots, like beta carotene, so you won’t even care that you’re eating veggies for dessert. Or what about decadent Chocolate Zucchini Brownies? We knew you’d say yes 😉

So now that you have some healthy tips on how to get more veggies in your life, start enjoying optimal health and looking and feeling better today!
