10 Easy Ways To Eat More Vegetables

Adding more vegetables into our meals everyday is really important. Vegetables are rich in antioxidants and also nutrients, which of course is very good for your health and fight off many diseases.

On the plus side also for you, they are very beneficial for weight loss/control due to the fact that it’s real food and is also low in calories.

It’s also well known that you must have several servings of vegetables per day, (Click Here) this though is very hard for many people.

Why? You either don’t know how to make it appealing or appetizing, or you simply just don’t have enough respect for vegetables and merely view it as an afterthought.

So this will cover 10 ways you can put vegetables into your meals more often, and won’t get sick of eating them again.

 

Toast– If you’re a Toast lover in the mornings you’re going to love this, instead of just having it with just butter, plain or dare I say it Chocolate spread!  I recommend you try these simple recipes out From cooking light (Click Here) 

 

Soups- Are an excellent choice when looking to multiply your servings of vegetables ASAP. They are good for spices and pureeing, if it comes down to it you can also make a vegetable broth (Click Here)     Also if you are looking to go meatless what better way than to have a soup, I can hear that pot moving now.

 

OmeletIs another excellent choice when looking to multiply your servings of vegetables. They are made by frying eggs (Click Here) with a small amount of butter or oil in a pan. The filling often includes Cheese or Meat but this is about Vegetables, so for that reason we should opt for vegetables such as Spinach, Kale, Onions Tomatoes.. whatever your preference  of vegetables any type of vegetable will work wonders with the versatile Omelet.

 

Bell Peppers- Stuffed to be precise, how you do this is by stuffing the halved bell peppers with Beans, Rice and a bit of seasoning and then bake It in the oven. Bell peppers are a really rich source of  Vitamin A and C and many minerals. The vegetables that we can use right away  are Cauliflower, Spinach, Onions even Avocado, works well with Bell Peppers.

 

Lettuce Wrap– Instead having bread based wraps and sandwiches all the time how about trying Lettuce.

Lettuce wraps can be included in all types of meals, and of course a substitute for sandwiches or a bun made from bread.

The vegetables that work well with Lettuce wraps include Sweet potatoes, Mushroom and sun dried tomato.

 

Veggie Burger- Not just at BBQ’s where they can be eaten  you know, these are great to eat regularly too. Substituting this for meat will make it easier to get more vegetables at one time because the Burger will be packed with vegetables already, let alone when you start adding the salad to it (Click Here) 

 

Tuna Salad- It really goes hand in hand and is easy to make. Just add any vegetable you want to eat with the Tuna and you’re good to go.. Onions, Carrots, Cucumber and Spinach are a great place to start if you’re stuck for ideas, mind.

 

Stew & Casserole Stew Is yet another meal that is very easy to include vegetables, for example fish based stew; you could add cashew nuts (If you’re not allergic) and tomatoes. As for Casseroles they normally include meat but if you want it meatless then you can make it with chopped vegetables, Potatoes served with pasta or rice.

If you’d like to reduce the calories and carbs in your Casseroles then replace the grains mentioned and add more vegetables such as Carrots, Mushrooms, and Broccoli.

 

Guacamole- When mixing Guacamole is when you should add the vegetables to the dish. If you didn’t know already Guacamole is an Avocado-based dip made from mashing up the ripe Avocado to  puree form and then adding lemon or lime juice with additional seasonings.  

Tomatoes, Bell Peppers, Onions and cucumber are all typical things you would add to Guacamole anyway.. just leave the Doritos out of it though.

 

Pasta- Is so delicious, so for me the Tomato on the Salad (Hey I don’t eat Icing or Cake) is when you’re able to include lots of vegetables on it. Zucchini, Parsnips a bit of Tomato and Carrots will have you eating like an Italian in no time.

Don’t forget your herbs if you’re making sauce, and avoid big jars of sauce that are high in sugar.. I’d recommend whipping up your own sauce if you can.

 

Conclusion

By adding Vegetables into your regular eating routine, you’ll have an increase of Nutrients and Antioxidants and Fibre intake. Eating these in the long term helps reduce chances of Cancer, Heart disease and of course weight control/management.  You cannot go wrong with eating more vegetables, as no one ever got fat off eating them.

That’s It!

I really enjoyed sharing this with you guys.  Please do let me know though…
