In order to stay accountable to being healthier, it’s best to make changes that you’ll stick with and actually enjoy. A great start to a healthier 2018 is to incorporate more veggies! Before you have PTSD about all the brussel sprouts your parents made you eat, keep reading! We’ve got some seriously yummy tips that will make you question why you ever broke up with veggies!
- Meatless Mondays
- This comes from one of our favorite bloggers, wellnessforthewin. Every Monday Shanna and her husband make the most delicious looking flatbread pizzas. Pizza is the best excuse to add more veggies to your diet. Not only are they meatless, but they are loaded with veggies! She uses spinach, mixed bell peppers, red onion and shredded carrots. Check out how Shanna makes her flatbread pizzas and more recipes here.
- Smoothies and Smoothie Bowls
- Smoothies are great for any meal. You can make them lighter or more protein packed to fit any part of your day. We love adding spinach to smoothies to sneak in some greens. For extra creamy smoothies but no added sugar, try avocado or frozen cauliflower in your smoothies.
