Trouble with Veggies?

Remember the time I challenged you to eat a vegetable every meal?

If you have trouble eating veggies, this post is for you.

Finding sneaky ways to increase how many vegetables you get in your face is a game I’ve become pretty good at playing over the years. Here are some of my favorite ways to regularly crush lots of vegs.

🥤- smoothies. Throw a couple of handfuls of spinach into a blender with almond milk, half a banana, berries, nut butter, protein powder, etc. Blend it up. Suck it down. 10/10 would definitely recommend - esp on busy mornings. PS - want to be hardcore? Try frozen, riced cauliflower in there too. You can’t taste it, I promise. 

🥦 - roast them. Nobody likes soggy Brussels sprouts. (If there are people like that out there, my b…) But seriously, you should enjoy the things you eat! Broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts included. It’s a fact that vegetables taste 100X better when you roast them. Pro tip from @hrickher herself - don’t crowd them on the baking sheet. Give them space to actually roast. If they’re too close to each other, they’ll steam instead and you’ll miss that delicious crunch.

 🥒 - farmer’s market. Hit your farmer’s market and get in-season, locally grown vegetables. They’re usually cheaper and they’re going to taste amazing because they’re fresh and in season. Win-win.

🥘 - hide them. Sneak them in chilis, soups, stews, and scrambles. Dishes like these are packed with so many other flavors and textures that you won’t even notice the extra veggies.
