5 Easy Way’s To Eat More Vegetables…

 

  1. Prepare a weeks worth of vegetables over the weekend! – Preparing vegetables on a daily basis is often unrealistic for most people and even if we do have the time we often find excuses as to why we don’t eat them every night. Therefore preparing in one bulk amount means you have no excuses. Add them to stir fry’s, curry’s, pastas etc…
  2. Eat frozen vegetables! – Frozen vegetables are often fully prepared, meaning there is less preparation time for you. Frozen vegetables retain their nutritional value when frozen immediately after harvest, so you don’t need to worry about them losing their nutritional value!
  3. Drink Vegetables! – There are a number of high powered blenders that can turn any vegetables into a nutritious smoothie – for recipe ideas click this link… http://allrecipes.com/recipes/17578/drinks/smoothies/veggie/
  4. Substitute Raw Vegetables for pitta bread etc! Freshly cut carrots, peppers, celery is a great alternative to the pitta breads, crackers etc which are usually eaten with dips etc. You can even buy ready prepared bags of chopped vegetables so again there are no excuses.
  5. Start every meal with vegetables – Most people plan their meal around meats or pastas etc. Instead start by planning a meal around a vegetable. This way you guarantee you are going to eat your 5 a day!
