Are you looking for new ways to incorporate healthy green vegetables into your cooking and meal plans?
You know you should eat more green vegetables, but you may be tired of adding them to a salad each day. However, there are other options to use these healthy veggies while you cook or bake.
Consider these ways to include more healthy green vegetables in your meals.
Here are six different ways you can start to use more healthy green vegetables in your diet that will help break the monotony and make your diet more nutritious.
There are two different techniques to use vegetables in a pasta dish:
Soups, sauces, and dressings can be used to hide healthy vegetables. This is a useful method for picky eaters or children who refuse to eat whole or raw veggies. You’ll need a blender or mixer to puree the veggies to hide them in sauces.
You can hide vegetables inside meatballs, too! Whether you stick to a completely vegetarian recipe or use meat, you can add green, healthy vegetables to meatballs.
If you’re trying to reduce carbohydrates or are simply tired of eating bread, you can switch to green vegetables as your base.
Most casseroles tend to be bland concoctions of leftover rice, noodles, tuna, or other bits that haven’t been eaten. If your family dreads the leftovers you put in a casserole, add more green vegetables to kick the flavor up a notch.
If you hate the taste of green vegetables, smoothies also give you the option of hiding them amid other flavors. Mix veggies with fruits in your smoothies for a variety of tastes.
