Vegetables are extremely rich in nutrients and antioxidants and we all should eat about 3-4 cups a day (preferably a variety of vegetables) to enhance health, fight diseases and even help with weight loss.
But just thinking about other options other than salads, many of us end up forgetting or even giving up and thus increasing the consumption of vegetables in their daily diet is difficult.
Here I got 10 tips to help you don’t get bothered thinking about how to eat more vegetables besides adding in your salad:
1. Add to your smoothies, juices and protein bowls
You can blend spinach, kale to your smoothie, juice and protein bowls and also, use frozen cauliflower instead of frozen bananas, for example. Here are some recipes.
2. Add to your omelets
Omelets are great source of protein and fat, and adding a vegetables like onion, spinach, asparagus and tomatoes for example, make them even better.
3. As wrap
Instead of bread, flour wraps or tortillas, you can use fresh lettuce and kale. Also, you can use mushrooms, like Portobella, to use as “bun”, filling with meat, cheese…mmmmm!
We cannot forget that we can make an enormous variety of soups using basically any kind of vegetables! Some recipes here!
5. Cauliflower can become everything
6. Noodle them
Zucchini, sweet potatoes and carrots are my favorite ones to create delicious and beautiful noodles! Just have to have a specific tool to make the work easier. You can also use zucchini and eggplant as a lasagna noodles! Easy-peasy.
7. Healthy chips
8. Stuffed peppers
So easy and delicious (recipe here), they are also low carb!
Another great recipe (here) that you can add up to 3 vegetables for example (i.e.: zucchini, eggplant, tomato, onion, peppers…) and it is also low carb.
10. Veggie burger
Either you are vegetarian or not, veggies burgers are so delicious and healthy! Check out this recipe here.
