4 ways to add more veg to your meals (without even noticing)


You’ve heard it all before: Vegetables are essential to your health. You’ve got to eat them to grow big and strong. They’re packed with essential nutrients. They’re not that bad, really. But blah, there’s just something about veggies that make us want to stay far, far away. ‘Til now. Here are four ways we’re using to crank up the veggie content in our favorite meals. And we hardly even notice we’re eating healthier.

 

Pick another pizza topping

You can have your pepperoni, but why not add another tasty option, too? Our picks are green peppers and onions. They add flavor and crunch in addition to vitamins and minerals your body needs to keep on keepin’ on.

 

Add a side salad

Many restaurant meals come with a house salad automatically. Eat yours instead of passing it up or shuffling the leaves around your plate, and you’ll find yourself filling up on nutrients instead of empty calories.       

 

Pile on the lettuce and tomato

Chomping on a sandwich or wrap for lunch? Instead of making it without produce, add in a few pieces of lettuce, a little onion and a slice of tomato. You won’t really notice the health factor—aside from the yummy crunch it’ll give your bite.

 

Give your grains a boost

A pasta dinner or a side of rice doesn’t have to be served straight up. Add sautéed spinach to your Italian night, or butter beans and corn to your rice pilaf. It will add tons more flavor to your favorite dish, and give you something to be happy about afterward.
