Sneaky ways to get more greens in your diet
Updated: Jul 28
There is no denying the health benefits we get from eating more greens. It can however be tricky to convince your kids (or spouse) that eating greens can actually taste pretty good.
Here are some sneaky ways to get more greens in your diet - without causing any dramas:
ADD A HANDFUL OF GREENS TO YOUR SMOOTHIE
One of the easiest ways to add more greens to your diet is to toss a handful into your smoothie. Spinach is a great option as it won’t change the flavour of your smoothie – or you could try adding a handful of kale.
ADD SOME KALE TO YOUR TACOS
If you’ re a fan of tacos, you can easily hide some chopped kale right into your taco mix. This is a great way to add a nutritional punch to your meal.
TOP YOUR PIZZA WITH SOME GREENS
Who says pizza can’t be healthy? You can make a cauliflower pizza crust and top your pizza with lots of delicious and nutritious ingredients like bell peppers, onions, and a handful of dark leafy greens like spinach, kale, or arugula.
MAKE VEGGIE EGG MUFFINS
For an easy on-the-go breakfast or protein-rich snack, make egg muffins and add in all of your favourite veggies including some chopped dark leafy greens. This is a great way to kick start your day with some healthy fats and protein from the eggs, and all the nutritional, anti-inflammatory and fiber-rich goodness you get from the greens.
