Wondering How to Add More Vegetables to Your Meals?

Not a salad fan? No worries! Nutrition is life, and food should be enjoyed while keeping it healthy. Vegetables are packed with essential nutrients and antioxidants, vital for a healthy body. Unfortunately, many people find veggie dishes unappealing due to their chewy texture or bland taste. The good news is there are plenty of ways to transform vegetables from plain and boring to deliciously exciting.

Say goodbye to boring veggie meals and try these tips:

  1. Steam veggies and spice them up with natural spices.
    • Spices that complement the taste of cabbage include nutmeg, garlic, black pepper, paprika, and thyme.
  2. Blend your favorite veggies into a smoothie.
    • Add lemon or ginger for a refreshing twist.
  3. Stir fry veggies in a small amount of oil (1 tablespoon).
    • Add natural spices for extra flavor. Virgin coconut oil gives a distinct taste to stir fry.
  4. Prepare a side salad and jazz it up with flaked fish or shredded meat.
    • Steam or grill meat/fish with herbs or spices before adding it to the salad.
  5. Chop veggies and add them to soups (try this with soups like okro, palm nut, or groundnut soups).
  6. Shred veggies and toss them into rice or other grains.
    • Lightly steam vegetables before adding them to grains.
