Going Green – How To Add Vegetables to Your Diet

You know they are healthy for you, your mother told you to eat them when you were little to make you strong, but are you getting enough green vegetables in your diet? Becoming a green eating machine is not as difficult as you may think. You just have to know how to add it into your diet. Here are some ways to sneak in those greens. Your health depends on it!

6 Ways To Add More Vegetables To Your Diet

Smoothies: What better way to get your greens vegetables than to drink them! Mask the taste with fruit and you won’t even know you are eating spinach. Here is an easy green recipe: 1/2 banana, 1/2 c blueberries, 1 c almond milk, 1 T Betsy’s Best, 1 T chia seeds, 3/4 c fresh spinach leaves. Blend and serve.  (Check out all of our healthy smoothie recipes.)

Omelets: Turn your breakfast into a veggie fest by adding spinach, arugula, beet greens, parsley or cilantro and salsa into your eggs for a delicious twist!

Grilled: Roasting veggies is one of the easiest ways to enjoy a flavorful dish. Grilled endive and radicchio are not commonly grilled foods but are flavorful companions to peppers, onions, and mushrooms.

Baked: Baking or roasting veggies is as easy as 1-2-3. Throw some kale on a baking sheet, spray with olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt and bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 min. You can also roast Brussels sprouts for a dish that is delish!

Shredded: When shredded finely, even tougher greens become easy to handle. You can shred these greens for a healthy garnish on mashed potatoes or mix them into your favorite salad.

Wrap them up!: Instead of using a tortilla, crunchy greens that contain a good amount of water, such as Swiss chard, bok choy, escarole, or romaine make fantastic wraps for a variety of fillings, ranging from roasted eggplant, tomatoes, onion, and garlic to teriyaki chicken with mandarin oranges.

So being creative is just half the fun….the other half is eating your creation! Think outside the box on ways to eat those green leafy vegetables and watch yourself as you get lean!

There’s a Reason to Eat your Fruit and Vegetables this Season

It is a known fact that you can walk into a grocery store and find almost every type of fruit and vegetable available no matter if it is locally out of season. We eat kiwi from Italy, grapes from Mexico, clementines from Argentina, and apples from Chili. A lot of our produce is imported, but there are still local farmers growing produce for our local markets and farmers markets. Here is a guide to help you in your quest for buying your produce locally in the peak of it’s season.

Remember to get 2-3 servings of fruit and 3-5 servings of vegetables a day to help keep your body healthy. Fruits make a wonderful snack or treat for dessert, and vegetables should accompany every meal. We love to pair our Betsy’s Best with many fruits such as pears, apples, bananas, and even strawberries. It is also delicious to dip celery and carrots into Betsy’s Best! Produce is the perfectly packaged quick snack, and more nourishing than something that would come in a package or with a wrapper.

Omelets: Turn your breakfast into a veggie fest by adding spinach, arugula, beet greens, parsley or cilantro and salsa into your eggs for a delicious twist!

Grilled: Roasting veggies is one of the easiest ways to enjoy a flavorful dish.  Grilled endive and radicchio are not commonly grilled foods but are flavorful companions to peppers, onions, and mushrooms.  Even throwing a portobello mushroom on the grill instead of steak will offer a healthier dish with a meaty flavor.

Baked: Baking or roasting veggies is as easy as 1-2-3.  Throw some kale on a baking sheet, spray with olive oil, massage 3 tablespoons of your favorite Betsy’s Best Gourmet Nut or Seed Butter, sprinkle with sea salt and bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.  You can also roast Brussels sprouts for a dish that is delish!

Shredded: When shredded finely, even tougher greens become easy to handle.  You can shred these greens for a healthy garnish on mashed potatoes or mix them into your favorite salad.

Wrap them up: Instead of using a tortilla, crunchy greens that contain a good amount of water, such as Swiss chard, bok choy, escarole, or romaine, make fantastic wraps for a variety of fillings, ranging from roasted eggplant, tomatoes, onion, and garlic to teriyaki chicken made with  Betsy’s Best Gourmet Nut or Seed Butter.

These are some unique ways for how to hide vegetables in food and make your diet more colorful this spring.  Make sure to eat at least one green veggie a day, if not more!  There are so many fun ways to wrap, toss, blend or shred those veggies that you can easily add them to any meal!
