Veggies. For some people, veggies are the stuff that goes on top of a burger and that’s about it. They don’t like veggies, and the veggie hate started all the way back when they were children. For other people, veggies are just about the only thing that they’ll eat — they won’t eat anything else. It’s better to make sure that you focus on foods that are good rather than foods that aren’t. Still, if you’ve been a lifelong enemy of veggies for all of this time, you might need to figure out new ways to enjoy your vegetables.
There’s a few different ways you can go. The easiest way is to think about a pureed soup. This is where you soften vegetables, process them in a blender, and then add chicken or beef stock. It creates a nice thick soup that is easy to digest and very flavorful. You can add any type of spices or seasonings that you want. You can even add meat if you want — you don’t have to settle for vegetables-only.
Another way that you can add more vegetables to your life is through casseroles. If you puree some veggies and then add them into a casserole, you will hardly notice them. It’s something that can help your whole family get more vegetables. It might seem a little wrong to sneak vegetables in your children’s food, but you do want to make sure that your child has the best blend of nutrition possible in their day to day lives.
Trying to make sure that you get more vegetables might lead you to think that there’s a certain minimum that you really need. It’s hard to set a minimum because everyone’s body is different. We do know that vegetables provide a lot of soluble as well as insoluble fiber, making them a vital part of your diet.
Soups, smoothies, and casserole dishes are going to be staples in your diet, especially if you’re trying to increase the amount of vegetables that you’re trying to get in. The more veggies you eat, the healthier you’ll be over time. When it comes time to take bigger steps towards health, you can’t get into a rut. You can’t back down from your health goals.
Some people might make fun of you for eating more veggies, but you will still need to make sure that you take your health seriously. There are many illnesses that are caused by poor nutrition, so it’s important to make sure that you at least get a high level of nutrition in your everyday life.
Overall, it’s up to you to add more veggies to your everyday life. But if all you thought was waiting for you was a lot of salad, you’re definitely mistaken!
