Quick and easy veggie options
Below are some quick and easy ways to add veggies to your meals and snacks:
Pre-chopped, bagged salad kits
Pre-cut veggies (in produce section)
Canned veggies (can rinse to reduce sodium)
Frozen vegetables, frozen vegetable blends - ok if they have sauce or flavoring. Take some time to explore flavors you would enjoy to go with dishes you already make!
Can you replace a starch or some of the starches with a vegetable? For example - riced cauliflower in place of rice, spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles in place of some pasta.
You can always add more to recipes - throw in extra onion, peppers, celery, etc. when cooking so that vegetables make up a bigger portion of the dish.
Raw veggies (baby carrots, cucumbers, bell peppers, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, radishes, etc.) and hummus or other types of dip/dressings are always a great option to add as a side to a sandwich or have as a snack!
