10 Ways To Add More Veggies To Your Diet

Vegetables have been promoted in a healthy lifestyle for a very long time, and there’s good reason for it. Vegetables are high in dietary fiber, micronutrients and antioxidants which promote various bodily functions, and energy from carbohydrates. Some vegetables also contain good amounts of protein. They can help you feel full after your meal and promote weight loss and weight management. Many people do not eat enough vegetables throughout the day for a multitude of reasons. Maybe they don’t like them, they don’t know how to prepare them in an appetizing way, or they choose less healthy food because it may be more convenient. If you fit into one of these, remember you are not alone and I am here to help! In this post, I want to share with you easy ways to increase your daily vegetable intake.

1. Add Vegetables to Your Eggs

Whether you’re eating your eggs over easy, scrambled, or hard boiled, add some veggies on the side or while you are cooking. For example, add some fresh or frozen spinach to your scrambled eggs in the same pan. You could also make a quick potato hash with onions and kale to put your fried eggs on top of.

2. Roast or Grill Your Vegetables

Many people don’t eat enough veggies because they are boiling or steaming them, and these methods don’t make the tastiest veggies. Try boiling or grilling your vegetables – both of these methods will create a crispy exterior and gorgeous brown color!

3. Add Veggies to Your Evening Meals

Try to make a guideline for yourself when cooking your main evening meal to include at least one vegetable on your plate. For example, chicken and broccoli with brown rice is a great idea and it includes at least one vegetable. If you can add more than one, that’s even better!
