For some, it might seem like a daunting task getting the requisite amount of vegetables in your daily diet. However, if you have a plan for how you're going to get your 3-5 servings of greens per day, the task becomes exponentially easier. If vegetables are deeply ingrained in your diet and routine, you won't have much of a problem at all getting your daily dose in.
Below, Espinosa Family Chiropractic discusses a few ways to incorporate vegetables into your diet.
1.) Breakfast Vegetables
Putting spinach in your egg scramble and adding avocado into the mix will help you make sure that vegetables are a part of every meal you have throughout the day. Bonus points if you have a side kale salad with red cabbage, broccoli florets, and carrots.
2.) Eat More Salads
Get used to having salads when you go out to eat, that way you'll be getting 1-2 servings of greens, even when you're eating at a restaurant! Make sure you have plenty of salad stuff at home -- kale, cabbage, carrots, onions, avocado, etc. Add sunflower seeds, walnuts, and even dried cranberries to crunch things up.
3.) Veggie Smoothies/Juices Over Fruit
Make sure to opt for that green juice or smoothie over a fruit juice or smoothie. Many fruit juices and smoothies have just as much sugar as a soda pop.
