5 Ways to Get Yourself To Eat More Fruits & Veggies

Do you remember how some of our parents tricked us into eating more vegetables when we were kids? Whether it be cutting the broccoli or carrots into cute shapes, sneaking spinach into our bolognese sauce, or hiding vegetables in the cheese - their creativity deserves a great round of applause.

Only when we grew up, do we realize how amazing vegetables are for our health. However, for some people, it can be tricky to get the recommended vegetable intake of 5-6 servings per day. Want to know how we can get ourselves to eat more veggies effortlessly? Check out these tips below!

     1. Expose Yourself to More Veggies

In order to fall in love with eating veggies, you have to first expose yourself to different kinds of vegetables. Visit the local farmer’s market and the produce department of the supermarket nearby. Take the time to look at the variety of vegetables available to you, as well as what’s in season. Don’t be shy to ask questions from people who produce best, they will be happy to give advice and cooking tips for each veggie. Try to make it a goal to buy one or two new vegetables every week and embrace your creativity by trying out different recipes.

       2. Don’t Hide Your Fruits

Place the fresh fruits into a visible corner or brightly colored bowl at home to encourage everyone in the family, including yourself, to eat them. Pack fruits like a banana, apple, or orange in yours and your kid’s bag, so whenever you feel like grabbing something to munch on, you’ve got the healthiest option!

        3. Drink Your Veggies

You might have heard the saying that it’s better to eat your fruits than drink them, as you might lose the nutrients when you juice them. But that doesn’t always apply to juicing vegetables! In fact, juicing vegetable can retain certain nutrients and minerals lost in some cooking methods. You may also consider blending superfoods like Spirulina, Matcha or Goji berries into your smoothie to reap their benefits.
