3 Simple Tips to get more veggies in your diet
- Learn to Cook (or at least follow a recipe).
This strategy is a bit different from the other two, but it’s really where getting more vegetables in your diet has to start. Sure, you can eat vegetables raw; in fact, it’s encouraged, but you certainly get more variety from cooking them. Use Google as your friend and search for recipes that include vegetables or just different ways of making something as simple as broccoli.
- Include Vegetables in Smoothies.
Spinach is a huge smoothie-friendly vegetable common among the Ozone staff. It works in pretty much any smoothie and will usually be overpowered by the other ingredients so that you won’t even taste it. Still, you may get some weird looks from people as they wonder what is in the green sludge you are drinking. Other great options include kale, spinach and carrots.
- Make omelettes a regular breakfast selection.
One of the questions I always get is how to get vegetables in at breakfast. I usually suggest either a smoothie with spinach or broccoli or – even better – an omelette. Again, from a variety standpoint, the options are really endless with an omelette. Here are some ideas:
c. Tomatoes (Yes, they’re technically fruits, but who cares? They are good for you.)
d. Salsa (best for those who are “easing” their way into vegetables)
g. Asparagus (if you’re feeling bolder)
h. The list goes on and on…
