Get Your Greens

For people that do not like vegetables, getting the recommended daily amount can be daunting. We all need to include greens in our diet. Below are a few (sneaky) ways to incorporate more vegetables into your diet if you do not like them:

Make them into a smoothie: There are tons of recipes for delicious smoothies that include lots of greens and fruits to mask the taste of the vegetables. These smoothies are filling, healthy and fast to make and consume.

Hide it in dishes you love: One of my favorite ways to incorporate vegetables into my meals is by using them as the main ingredient in sauces for my favorite pasta dishes. Another way of doing this is by using cauliflower rice or mashed cauliflower instead of regular rice or mashed potatoes.

Experiment with different types of vegetables: The green vegetable color turns many people off. Especially if they have had bad experiences with that vegetable previously, try incorporating bell peppers and look for purple, yellow, orange, and red vegetables.

Give these tricks a try and see if you can increase your vegetable intake. You might even start to like vegetables more and eating them more frequently. Find more ways to live a happier and healthier lifestyle by checking out the rest of the posts on our blog.
