How to Incorporate more Greens in your Diet
Green veggies, especially those beautiful leafy greens, are loaded with fiber, vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals, and are low in calories. They have a great number of health benefits and can help to overcome disease, enhance stamina, and help cleanse our systems.
But suppose you don’t feel like eating enormous salads at all times? Don’t worry. There are lots of alternative methods to add more leafy greens to your foods. Some of the techniques below are ideal for sneaking greens into your diet.
Mix into Soups or Stews
Soups are a fantastic vehicle for leafy greens. Mix a big handful of spinach into your soup or stew during the last 4 to 5 minutes of cooking.
Drink Green Smoothies or Juices
If you’re not a big fan of eating all your green vegetable servings, drink them! Spinach, cucumber, kale, baby lettuce, romaine, mint, and parsley are my favorite.
If you’re making an egg scramble, add some chopped kale, spinach, or collards at the end of the cooking process. You’ll be starting off your day with a good portion of greens, with lots of fiber and protein to keep you full for quite a long time.
Get a Daily Dose of Kimchi
Cabbage is also a leafy green! Get your daily dose of kimchi, a hot and spicy fermented Korean condiment usually made from napa cabbage.
Put them in Wraps and Sandwiches
Adding the greens is easy when they compliment or go well with the other flavors of your wraps.
Garnish your Dishes
An excellent way to hide greens in simple sight is to finely shred them and spread them into or on top of other food.
Snack on Green Veggies Throughout the Day
Greens make yummy and fulfilling snack foods. Roasted broccoli, Kale chips, Brussels sprouts, and raw collard leaves drizzled with hummus can be extremely satisfying.
