Here’s a fact: even if you love veggies, it can be hard sometimes to get in 6 to 8 cups a day; if you struggle as well to eat a variety of veggies throughout the day, keep reading as I am sharing sneaky ways to add vegetables to your meals.
And that’s a shame because veggies are packed with vitamins, minerals, and plant compounds that your body needs to function at its very best.
My Favorite “Sneaky” Ways to Add More Veggies to Your Meals
If this is something you struggle with, I’ve got some easy ideas to help you ramp up your veggie intake:
1. Chop them into tiny bits
Stir them into scrambled eggs, soups, casseroles, etc. When they are minced, you barely notice them!
2. Add them to every meal … one meal at a time
Start by finding ways to add them to the easiest meal (probably dinner), and then when you master that, move on to another meal.
3. Be intentional about it
Decide it’s not a balanced meal if it doesn’t contain veggies, and then get on it!
4. Make them tasty
Experiment with adding sauces and spices to your veggies. This makes a huge difference!
5. Be sneaky
Try adding carrot or pumpkin puree, spinach, and/or mushrooms to your burgers or meatloaf.
Make it a great day!
