More Is Better [When It Comes To Veg]

29 January 2024

More is better.  Well…not always, but definitely YES when it comes to vegetables. 95% of us are just not eating enough fiber. Veggies have plenty of that, along with a plethora of vitamins and minerals PLUS phytonutrients (found only in plants).  All of this packs a huge nutritional bunch in a relatively small amount of calories.

Getting more veggies in your diet:

  • Veggies for breakfast - try adding kale to your smoothie or tomatoes and onions to your omelette. I've even been known to enjoy a savory oatmeal with spinach and [plant based] butter!
  • Soups are a great way to get a variety of veggies in all at once. Minestrone is a wonderfully filling meal. One of my favorite soup ingredients is canned fire roasted tomatoes.
  • Snack on veggies. Crunchy baby carrots (or cut your own from full-grown adult carrots, 'cause, let's face it…those “baby carrots” are not babies and they're not that tasty) make a great stress buster. Pair them with hummus for protein and stamina.
  • Blend beans into your soups and sauces for a protein and fiber boost where your family least expects it.  Or use them whole in salads and snacks (hello, roasted chickpeas!).
  • Add vegetables to everything you make.  Even if it's just cup of noodles…add some frozen mixed veg.
  • Add veggies to dessert!  I make a decadent flourless chickpea brownie and you've got to admit, these kale cupcakes look interesting…
  • Make an appointment with Elisa for a plant-based cooking class!  Veggies make everything better!
