A savory breakfast makes it easier to add vegetables; you can serve eggs over sautéed leafy greens. When you’re cooking your eggs, you can add tomatoes or mushrooms or even get fancy and make a veggie-packed frittata or omelet. Kick-off your morning with a fresh and veggie-filled breakfast!
Soups, Sauces & Smoothies
Soups and sauces aren’t too surprising when it comes to veggie intake, but you can add a twist to them both. Soups, in particular, are an easy dish to add vegetables to. Seeing as though there are already tons of veggies in your soup, get creative, and add more! Seldom are the veggies that taste good together, so use whatever you have in the fridge! Sauces and smoothies are also a great way to up your veggie intake, and “trick” yourself into eating an extra vegetable or two. Adding greens to a smoothie is always a good idea, as well as zucchini, cucumber, and butternut squash purée. We promise you won’t even taste it!
Add Them to Your Pizza
If you’re anything like us, pizza is probably one of your favorite foods. Nothing tops it! Adding herbs and veggies can make your pizza even better, and may take the guilt out of eating the luxury. Try mushrooms, spinach, garlic, peppers, tomatoes, artichoke hearts…anything really.
This may sound a little odd, but adding beets to your brownies is an absolute pleasure! If you aren’t in the mood for experimenting with the classics, you can make carrot, zucchini, butternut squash, or pumpkin cakes. Incorporating veggies into your desserts is a sure way to make sure you’re getting all the nutrients you need.
