- The practice of having a smoothie a day, is a sure-fire way to get some extra veggies in. And the best part? You most likely won’t even taste them! Win-win. Blending a big handful of greens to your smoothie can be a great place to start. Here’s our favorite smoothie combo:
½ C Blueberries
1 Tbl. Almond Butter
1 C Spinach (fresh or frozen will work)
¾ C nut milk of choice
Feeling like an expert? Next add some cauliflower rice to your smoothie for extra creamy texture! Frozen works great and again, we promise you can’t taste it!
½ C Cauliflower (frozen works best)
½ C Berry blend
¾ C Nut milk of choice
1 Date, pitted
- Use fresh herbs!! Not only do they add extra flavor to any dish, herbs are packed with plenty of nutritional benefits.
- It’s hard to beat a nice cozy bowl of soup, especially in these cooler months. Why not make soup with benefits?! Pureeing veggies into soups, such as butternut squash soup you will be getting extra veggies and did you know it’s great for digestion as well?! True story.
- Next time you make pasta, add some spiralized zoodles to your noodles! 50/50 zoodle to noodles ratio is still satisfying and a great way to sneak in extra veggies.
