5 Easy Ways To Sneak More Veggies Into Your Diet

I think I speak for almost everyone when I say we could stand to have more veggies in our diets. I’m good at eating everything else – meat, carbs, cheese, carbs, wine, cheese, carbs – but sometimes I forget to put veggies on those carbs! Luckily, there are some easy ways to mix more veggies into your diet.

Juice

You can cram a ton of veggies into juice and mask them with sweet flavors.

For instance, one of my favorite juices consists of kale, apples, ginger, lemon, and carrots! It sounds a little out there but it tastes like a refreshing apple lemonade.

Smoothies

Blend them up for breakfast or for an afternoon snack.

This is a great way to hide leafy greens like kale and spinach if you don’t like the taste.

Meat Loaf

You can throw almost any vegetable into meat loaf and the taste will be hidden! I’m talking carrots, kale, brussel sprouts. Any healthy veggie that you aren’t normally a fan of.

Serve your breakfast on a plate of greens.

If you’re a bacon, eggs, and toast type of person try adding some greens to your plate!

Sautee up some spinach and add a few slices of tomato to your plate!

Not only is it going to add nutrients, but it will make your plate way more Instagram-worthy!

Bring bite-size veggies with you everywhere.

Keep baby carrots or cut up celery in your purse throughout the day!

Slice up some peppers, green, red, yellow or orange, to snack on when you get the munchies.

Studies show that just you’re more likely to eat healthy options if you have them readily available.

I’m a twenty-something lifestyle blogger who tries not to take life too seriously. I think laughing and running are the cure to everything especially when its done in a new city. I think a balanced diet is important, and that they’re much easier when they include chocolate. :)

  1. love all of these ideas!! I read from a nutritionist that you should place your meal on a bed of greens no matter what (pizza, steak, and potatoes) so that way you are at least getting some great nutrients even if the meal itself isn’t as healthy! I loved that idea!

  2. When my kids were little, I would chop up tons of veggies (zucchini, carrots, onions, bell peppers, spinach) and add them to tomato sauce for pasta dishes. It was my sneaky way to get them to eat their veggies! We also add greens to smoothies and spinach/tomatoes to eggs too.

  3. I love this…I feel like I’m always grabbing green juices, because it’s just easier than chewing spinach and broccoli. I’m glad I’m not the only one haha.
