Turn Vegetables Into These Three Things So You Eat More Of Them
We’ve talked about 3 useful ways to use more healthy green vegetables in your cooking. Today we’re going to tell you more easy ways to put great veggies into your diet!
Consider turning vegetables into these foods so you eat more of them without noticing:
#1 Vegetables as wraps and sandwich bases
If you’re trying to reduce carbohydrates or are simply tired of eating bread, you can switch to green vegetables as your base.
Use lettuce as a wrap for a different take on a burrito or taco.
Another option is to use a thick leaf of lettuce or kale instead of bread for a sandwich. You can stack your tomatoes, cheese, meat, and other items on top.
Most casseroles tend to be bland concoctions of leftover rice, noodles, tuna, or other bits that haven’t been eaten. If your family dreads the leftovers you put in a casserole, add more green vegetables to kick the flavor up a notch.
Adding vegetables will not only make your casseroles look more pleasing with a variety of colors, but also have more flavor. You can use an assortment of veggies to make the casseroles bolder. Don’t be afraid to experiment to see what works best for you and your family!
If you hate the taste of green vegetables, smoothies also give you the option of hiding them amid other flavors. Mix veggies with fruits in your smoothies for a variety of tastes.
Kale, lettuce, spinach, and other green veggies go well with bananas, strawberries, blueberries, and apples. The mixed results will be hard to distinguish, but the taste will be worth it. You can also add a little yogurt or nuts for protein.
Green vegetables have multiple health advantages ranging from fiber to vitamins. If you’re struggling to eat salads, consider using vegetables in new ways. Your health and taste buds will both benefit!
