Admittedly, my veggie consumption has pretty much sucked lately so I've been making a conscious effort to include them in more meals. I'm trying to take meals that I normally eat and throw veggies in, instead of forcing myself to sit down and eat a plain bowl of broccoli. I'm always going back and forth with this-- I'm either gung-ho or totally a slacker but I'm going to do my best to keep this up because, well, veggies are good for you! Here are 2 of my meals from today that I was able to still enjoy while getting in my veggies too.
My normal breakfast: Egg whites, turkey bacon, and Ezekiel goats. So, today I added chopped zucchini, onion, and jalapeno to my eggs and it took a whole 3 extra minutes to do it. It added lots of flavor and I was definitely more full too.
Today was leg day so I wanted a nice carb-y meal as my lunch. I took whole wheat noodles and added a low sugar marinara sauce, chopped up grilled chicken I had prepped in the fridge and then added a cup of frozen broccoli. Stuck it in the microwave and then had a SUPER filling, nutrient rich lunch. I've been stocking up on frozen veggies lately-- this way I always have something on hand and don't have to worry as much about using up produce before it goes bad.
Hope that's helpful for you fellow veggie excluders :)
