How to Sneak More Veggies Into Your Diet

We all know vegetables are paramount to a healthy diet. Not only are they full of essential vitamins and minerals, they help add volume and keep you feeling full. Here are some tips to sneak more vegetables into your nutrition plan.

1- Hide It.

Puree vegetables in a blender or food processor and add to sauces, soups, casseroles, or any other entree you can think of. Sneak in some shredded carrots, diced peppers, finely chopped greens, and cauliflower to casseroles and stews. You’ll add flavor and volume without calories. This is a great trick to get kids and picky eaters to eat more vegetables.

2- Swap it.

Ditch the crackers- sliced zucchini, peppers, celery, baby carrots, broccoli ends, and radishes make great vehicles for dips. Thick, leafy greens can be quick-roasted with some spices and olive oil to replace chips as a healthy snack. Get a Spiralizer and make “noodles” with zucchini, eggplant, squash, or cucumber. Top with your sauce and you won’t miss pasta.

3- Drink it!

Juicing is all the rage right now, and rightfully so! Starting your day or resetting your afternoon with blend of vegetables, herbs, and fruits is great for your digestive system and to ensure you’re getting your essential vitamins in just a few sips. Check out your local juicer or toss your favorite veggies (we love kale, cucumber, apple, ginger, lemon, and parsley juice!) in a juicer to make your own.
