Only about 25% of adults get enough vegetables in a day – if you don’t include French fries!
There are tons of reasons people don’t eat vegetables, but today let's focus on how all of us can start eating more vegetables easily. Everyone likes quick and easy food, but you can make it happen without resorting to a greasy burger and fries – I promise. Here are five quick options to inspire you to eat healthier when you’re short on time: 1. Buy pre-washed salad greens and add chickpeas, avocado, tomato, onion, olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, and your favorite herbs for quick lunches. 2. Get baby carrots and pair them with individual serving size containers of hummus or guacamole for nutrient-dense snacks. 3. Pick up bags of microwaveable frozen vegetables and pair it with a protein and whole grain for simple dinners. Fresh is always better, but frozen vegetables are better than no vegetables at all. 4. Cut up a bunch of vegetables – like cucumbers and celery – and pair with nut butter for quick, filling snacks all week. 5. Prep a large tray of roasted vegetables on Sundays and pair with eggs at breakfast, greens at lunch, and grains at dinner. Eating habits can be challenging to change, but when you shift your mindset and view eating as an incredible act of self-care, it becomes second-nature. Your meals will go from quick acts of fueling to enjoyable acts of love that change your life and improve your energy and focus.
