Dislike Veggies? I Got You!!

Tips for sneaking in more veggies, for those who don’t like veggies!

SMOOTHIES

Blend up leafy greens such as spinach or kale, add your berries & yogurt and make a green smoothie. Add in a scoop or your favorite protein powder to also help keep satiety levels at bay.

Leafy greens are bland in flavour so there is almost no taste when it is mixed with the other smoothie ingredients.

 

 

 

SAUCES AND SOUPS

Make your own sauces & soups. Bolognese sauce can be made simple by blending veggies such as carrots, celery, tomatoes to use as the base for your sauce.

You won’t be able to taste them.

Double up on the batch and keep it in the fridge for a pasta sauce for another meal (double win!!).

 

 

 

RAW VEGGIES WITH DIP

Chopped raw veggies as a snack or with a hummus or salsa dip can be a great way to up your veggie intake while not eating soggy broccoli.

Red peppers, celery, cucumber & carrot work great & the kids are a lot more likely to follow suit and eat little sticks that they can pick at!

SNEAK THEM IN

… Making an omelette?  Add onion, peppers, and mushrooms.

… Having rice? Add frozen peas and wilted spinach.

… Making a curry? Toss in baby corn, peas & spinach.

… It bulks up the meal and you hardly notice it.

CAN’ BE BOTHERED WITH THE PREP? 

Frozen veggies and pre-bagged veggies is a great way to avoid waste and saves a ton of prep time!

Frozen veggies retain the goodness so you’re not missing out on nutrients as well (another win, win!)

I highly recommend steaming or frying frozen veggies, as it stops it going soggy and is done in no time.

 

 

BAM!! Hope these tips are super helpful! AND your taste for veggies may change after a while (for the good!). It takes time sometimes to acquire a good taste for some foods. I have definitely gained a liking to so many veggies I NEVER though I’d ever like!!! And that’s no joke! AND it was a lot of veggies I used to turn my head from! Now, I can only think of 2 I truly dislike!!
