Many of us grew up eating meals from a drive-through or at home out of a box, bag, can or container. Therefore fresh vegetables often do not reside at the top of our list of things we crave to eat. Examining the Standard American Diet the vegetable we most consume are potatoes and they are mostly fried. This is not a good thing.
Folks are always looking for ways to increase their intake of vegetables. An easy way to intake more veggies is to fill your blender half full with greens and then make a smoothie. Many favor young beet, chard & kale greens or spinach. Add frozen bananas, berries, almond milk or coconut water and you’re all set.
One can also finely dice up zucchini, yellow squash, eggplant, carrots or use the food processor and add them to any meat or non-meat sauces, loafs, meatballs or patties. Invest $30 in a spiralizer and use zucchini or squash in place of pasta and don’t forget spaghetti squash for another way to sneak more veggies onto the dinner table. Consuming a rainbow of vegetables ensures a wide variety of antioxidants.
If you consider yourself a logical person then ingest the fact that raw organic vegetables feed our bodies and mind better than anything you can get from a drive-through, box, bag, can or container.
