Get Sneaky With It


Here’s a fact: even if you love veggies, it can be hard to get the required amount (2 to 3 cups a day).


And that’s a shame because veggies are packed with vitamins, minerals, and plant compounds that your body needs to function at its very best.


If this is something you struggle with, I’ve got some easy ideas to help you ramp up your veggie intake:


1. Chop them into tiny bits

… and stir them into scrambled eggs, soups, potatoes, casseroles, etc. When they are minced, you barely notice them!


2. Add them to every meal … one meal at a time

Start by finding ways to add them to the easiest meal (probably dinner), and then when you master that, move on to another meal.


3. Be intentional about it

Decide it’s not a balanced meal if it doesn’t contain veggies, and then get on it!


4. Make them tasty

Experiment with adding sauces and spices to your veggies. This makes a huge difference!


5. Be sneaky

Try adding carrot or pumpkin puree, spinach, and/or mushrooms to your burgers or meatloaf.
