5-ways to get more greens in your life

5-ways to get more greens in your life

It’s not just kids who don’t like eating vegetables.

Most adults struggle to get their daily greens requirements.

But eating more vegetables shouldn’t be a struggle!

These 5 strategies can help make getting more vegetables convenient, simple, and delicious.

Prep ahead of time.

Meal preparation can be time-consuming.

That’s why they offer pre-washed greens, pre-cut broccoli, and prepared vegetables.

The next time you are at the grocery store, look for the vegetable trays. Everything is done for you, easy to pick at and super easy to get your greens for the day.

Make an omelet.

An omelet makes a simple way to slip more vegetables into breakfast or any meal. Use organic, pasture-raised eggs and be creative.

Toss in some of the green vegetables you’ve sliced and diced.

Slip ‘em into smoothies.

Spinach for breakfast might elicit groans.

You can easily add some raw spinach or other leafy greens into your smoothie and disguise the taste with yummy ingredients like cacao nibs and almond butter.

Your kids and significant others will never know until you tell them!

Double up in restaurants.

Maybe your entree comes with broccoli and a baked potato.

Simple: Ask your server to skip the potatoes and add another green vegetable, which provides more nutrients and fewer calories!

Buy them frozen.

Frozen vegetables today are far tastier than the ones you might have grown up with.

New research says they might also be healthier than fresh ones. That’s because they are often picked at peak ripeness when they’re the most nutritious.

From bag to stove top, then mixed into your favorite dish.

Getting your daily greens isn’t as easy as it sounds, so I hope you can take one of these tips and start to work them into your daily routine.

Take care and I'll see you on the next episode of Nary’s Kitchen.
