We all want to eat more green vegetables, but sometimes may not know different ways to incorporate them into our day to day eating routine. Elizabeth Street Blog posted 4 easy steps to eating more green vegetables every day.
Tip #1 Go green for breakfast. Start the day by drinking a big glass of green juice or a nourishing green smoothie. Want something more hearty? Add shredded spinach to an omelet or chopped kale alongside half an avocado and a poached egg.
Tip #2 Snack smart. Don't leave home without throwing a few ziploc bags of cut-up veggies in your purse to snack on later in the day. Don't have time in the morning, prepare before you head to bed the night before.
Tip #3 Set aside ten minutes to wash, chop, and bag all your produce. When you come home exhausted all you have to do is throw your prepped veggies and greens into a bowl for salad, in a saute pan to stir-fry or a shallow dish for roasted vegetables.
Tip #4 Freeze any fresh vegetables that you haven't had a chance to use in small individual freezer bags, that way you always have the perfect portions of veggies to add to smoothies, soups, and stews.
