Trying to munch more veggies on the reg, but sick of salads and steamed sides? Below are a handful of simple ways you can up your veggie count with ease.


Blend them. If you’re a smoothie fan, you’ll be thrilled to know that adding a handful or two of baby spinach to your morning blend won’t alter the flavor or texture of your favorite drink. It will, however, give you an added vitamin punch and a bright color.


Juice them. Dust off that unused juicer and aim to make a fresh juice at least once a week. Enlist the help of your family to prep veggies and wash the juicer when you’re done. Unsure of what blend to go with? Try green apple, spinach, cucumber, and fennel.


Chop them. Skip the chips! Keep chopped celery, peppers, and carrots in the fridge for dipping into salsa and hummus.


Shred them. Shred carrots, broccoli, or cabbage and toss them into soups, stir-fries, salads, or casseroles, or toss them together with your favorite herbs and dressings for a savory slaw. To make this easier, shred up a bag at the beginning of the week and get to sprinkling.


Cream them. Colorful carrots with a dash of ginger, chopped onion, salt, pepper, and veggie stock can make an easy, creamy, low-fat soup. Just boil the ingredients up in a pot, then blend with an immersion blender for an easy, filling meal.
