Just recently, I shared my tips and tricks for how I got my toddler to eat his veggies. But what about me? I know how good vegetables are for your body, and it’s one area where I know I can improve…especially after over-indulging at Thanksgiving where I ate all.the.carbs. So today I’m sharing a few ways that I sneak in my veggies. (Spoiler alert: I’ve found it’s not that hard, even if you have a busy, on-the-go life! Just takes a little planning.)
Recently, I became the proud owner of a blender/food processor (thanks Mom & Dad!) So for breakfast, I’ve been making a smoothie. It’s great to drink on my hour long commute into work and takes a few minutes of prep. Lately, I’ve been loving this green smoothie which consists of 1 banana, ice, vanilla protein powder, powdered peanut butter, almond milk and a handful of spinach.
For lunch, on the days when I am at work, I try to pack my lunch and bring it along. Some days, it just gets busy getting out the door so grabbing these MorningStar Farms® Veggie Bowls are super easy for me. I grab a few to have on hand at my local Jewel when I do my weekly grocery shopping so I have some quick and easy options at my fingertips.
And for dinner, I always try to include veggies in the meal as either part of the entree or as a side dish or salad. I’ve been roasting a lot of vegetables in big batches and they are really tasty. My favorites to roast are broccoli and cauliflower with a little olive oil, garlic, salt and fresh lemon juice.
Those are just a few ways to sneak in those good-for-you-vegetables into your day. What are your tips and tricks for getting veggies in your day? I’m all ears!
And whether you are a health-conscious, a working parent or have an on-the-go lifestyle, these Veggie Bowls are a great tasting, good for you option. Check them out in your local Jewel!
