While it’s recommended to eat five servings of fruit and vegetables a day, a lot of us can’t stand vegetables. No one wants to eat food they don’t enjoy, but your body needs the vitamins and nutrients from veggies. Because you need to eat them anyway, why not sneak them into your meals? Say goodbye to steamed vegetables and hello to tastier alternatives with these suggestions on how to add more veggies to your diet.
Find Vegetable-Based Soups You Enjoy
Vegetable-based soups are a great way to get your serving of veggies in. Try some canned or boxed soups or chilis to load up on your vegetables.
Find a Salad You Like
Salads don’t have to be boring, especially when you load them with healthy fats like avocados, nuts, and seeds, fruits, lean meats or tuna, and healthy carbs like quinoa and bulgur.
Seasoning makes a huge difference when it comes to vegetables. Whether you’re eating roasted veggies, raw veggies, soups, or salads add garlic powder, black pepper, salad, and cayenne pepper to make the vegetables so much tastier.
Add Veggies to Your Favorite Foods
If you’re already eating pizza, grilled cheese, pasta, burgers, or tacos, why not top them with some veggies? You’ll enjoy your meals while getting some nutrition in.
