Not eating enough vegetables? Here are eight ways to add more vegetables into your day.
Eating more vegetables is something many of us need to work on. Most of us aren’t getting even close to the 2-3 cups of vegetables we should be eating each day. Part of the reason may be that we think of vegetables in very narrow terms—either as salads or a side dish—without considering other ways they can be worked into the diet. It’s no secret that vegetables are some of the healthiest foods you can eat. Aside from the fact that they’re packed with vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, veggies are also great sources of fiber, which means they can help fill you up and keep you regular, too. On top of that, you can get all these nutritional benefits without spending huge numbers of calories.
Sure, you could eat more salads and side dishes, but there are other ways to work more vegetables into your day. Here are some of my favorite ways to get more vegetables into my day. Maybe they’ll work for you, too.
