Let’s face it—most of us don’t get enough vegetables in our diet. Even though we know we should eat five servings of fruits and vegetables a day, we can’t stand the thought of eating more vegetables. But vegetables don’t have to be boring and you can sneak them into your meals while still enjoying the foods you love. Here are five ways to add more veggies into your diet.
You’re probably already eating a lot of soups and chilis this winter, so choose ones that are vegetable-based to get your serving of veggies in.
Salads are anything but basic when you add avocado, fruits, chicken, tuna, bulgur, quinoa, nuts, or seeds. You don’t have to be stuck with a lettuce-based salad.
When it comes to vegetables, seasonings really elevate them. When eating raw or roasted veggies, salads, or soups top them with salt, pepper, or garlic powder and some herbs.
Add veggies to your favorite foods like pizza, pasta, burgers, and tacos to get some extra nutrition into your meals.
Smoothies & Juices
If you don’t want to eat your vegetables, try juicing them or adding them to smoothies.
