How to incorporate veggies into your dishes.
We all know that vegetables are good for you and that they are healthy to eat. But some of us have a hard time getting these nourishing bites into our system. It might be that you don’t like them or maybe you just don’t know how to prepare them in a way that you CAN enjoy them.
I love salads. I’m one of those people who could have a salad each day, not get tired of it, and be super content with raw veggies over a green leafy bed. But this isn’t the case for everyone. You don’t have to only eat salads to be healthy, there are other ways to eat your nourishing colors.
I started to play around with different ways that I could add vegetables into our meals and snacks at home once my son started to get a little picky with his solid foods. At first he seemed to enjoy eating veggies, and now it’s a hit or miss. So I got creative with some recipes and mixed some of the nourishment into dishes that I know he would enjoy.
The recommendations for vegetable intake (for an adult) is: 4-5 servings of vegetables a day. A serving of vegetables can look like: 1 cup of raw leafy vegetables or ½ cup cut up raw or cooked vegetables.
