5 Easy Ways to Eat More Greens

We all know that we should eat more vegetables. And honestly, it’s not that difficult, at least not when you love all things green. But if you don’t like vegetables, adding more greens to your diet is probably easier said than done. Some will need a hand to hold and some tips to get started. Others will stick to their bloody beef no matter what.

This list is for some and others.

1 Smoothie. Add healthy greens with little or no taste, like spinach for example. Or avocado, which will make any smoothie creamy and dreamy. Add some apple or mango if you think the taste is too green.

2 Make green dressings or sauces – hummus, guacamole, pesto. Easy, delicious and whipped up in a flash.

3 Make vegetarian bolognese with lentils instead of meat. Too big a step for you? Start by adding some extra vegetables to your regular bolognese. Grated carrots chopped into tiny pieces, zucchini (zero taste), and different kinds of onions will do. These are tiny healthy changes you (and your kids) won’t even notice.

4 Our kids love our mashed potatoes 2.0. Boil potatoes with cauliflower or parsnip, and let cool. Mash with black pepper, salt and olive oil.

5 Soups. We eat soup several times a week. Our all time favorite is lentil soup, and there are hundreds of variations. Still too green? Add 0.5-1 cup coconut milk and you will have a creamy soup that’s very, very hard not to like.
