5 Ways to Secretly Incorporate Vegetables Into Your Diet

As adults, we try to eat healthy, but it can be difficult if we always want food that's fast and easy to make. Here are some ways you can add vegetables to your diet without overcomplicating your meals.

1. Add them to your breakfast smoothies

Add a handful of spinach, celery, romaine lettuce, kale, or cilantro to your morning smoothie. This is a good way for you to acquire important sources of nutrients and vitamins. If you add fruit to your smoothies, you are less likely to taste the vegetables, due to the sweetness of the fruit.

2. Try veggie noodles

You can make (or buy) vegetable noodles made from squash, zucchini, or even sweet potato. Using a spiral slicer, you can cut the vegetables of choice into noodle form before cooking. With the right spices and sauces, you will not be able to tell that you're eating noodles made from vegetables.

3. Bake veggies into bread

Adding shreds of vegetables such as carrots or zucchini into your baked goods is a good way to incorporate vegetables into your diet all while fulfilling your sweet tooth cravings.

4. Add them to your burger mix

Adding vegetables, such as beans or mushrooms, to your ground beef is a good way to sneak veggies into a burger. Not only will it add flavor, but it's good for you too.

5. Bake them into fries

Try cutting vegetables, such as sweet potatoes, zucchini, green beans, asparagus, and avocados into french fry shapes. Season with salt and pepper. If you want to change the texture of the vegetable, feel free to coat them with flour, soak in a bowl with a whisked egg, and roll in breadcrumbs or crushed cornflakes, and bake accordingly.

Eating plenty of vegetables is great for your health. It is such a natural and yummy snack and I recommend that everyone consume as many vegetables as possible!
