Around 25% of adults consume enough vegetables in their day – if they do not include French fries this is.
Perhaps it’s the mentality of fast food that‘s so widespread or it’s simply laziness.
There are a myriad of reasons why people don’t eat veggies however, I’m currently focused on the ways people can eat more vegetables with ease.
Everyone wants quick and simple food, but it is possible to achieve this without having to resort to a messy food items like fries and burgers – I’m sure of it.
Below are 5 simple ideas to encourage you to take better care of your diet when you’re running low on time.:
- 1. Get salad greens that have been washed and cleaned and include chickpeas, avocado, onion, tomato vinegar, olive oil salt pepper, salt and your favourite herbs to make quick and easy lunches.
- 2. Find baby carrots, and pair them with individual serving sizes of guacamole or hummus for healthy, nutrient-rich snacks.
- 3. Find bags of frozen microwaveable vegetables and mix it with whole grain and protein to make simple meals. Fresh is always best and frozen veggies are superior to no vegetables at all.
- 4. Cut up lots of different vegetables, such as celery and cucumbers, and mix it with nuts to make quick, nutritious snacks throughout the week.
- 5. Prepare a huge tray of vegetables that have been roasted on Sundays. Pair them with eggs for breakfast, with greens for lunch and with grains for dinner.
The time spent buying the ready-to-eat vegetables as well as preparing fresh fruits and vegetables is worth it.
It can be difficult to change. However, when you change your perspective and see eating as an self-care practice It becomes routine. Foods will change from quick fueling to fun and loving acts that will transform your life and boost your focus and energy levels.
