In order to have a healthy balanced diet, it’s important to add fruits and vegetables to your meals. They are full of vitamins and minerals, filling, and can boost your health and fight diseases (especially in cold and flu season.) It’s hard to make sure you are getting enough vegetables throughout your day, but here are four easy ways to help you.
There is nothing better than a big pot of soup to warm you up in the winter. It is easy to make and you can add any vegetables that you have in your refrigerator. It is also the best way to use up any veggies that are a little wrinkled and don’t need to be wasted. You can add any herbs and spices and put some toasted bread on the side for a filling healthy meal.
Zoodles are a great alternative to spaghetti and they are just as filling and healthier way to eat your bolognese. All you need is a spiralizer and some zucchini, carrots, or sweet potatoes and you have yourself a delicious meal.
Add More Vegetables to Sauces
While you’re cooking sauces for your general meals, like marinara sauce, you can easily add some veggies to the mix, such as onions, carrots, bell peppers, zucchini, and spinach.
You can add just about anything to your basic omelet to make it more filling. So instead of cheeses, why not try to add some more veggies? Mushrooms, spinach, and bell peppers are all good options for an omelet.
