5 Easy Ways to Sneak in More Greens

Summer is just around the corner {hopefully, right!?} making it the perfect time to start incorporating more healthy foods in your diet...and with swimsuit season around the corner, it’s good motivation to up our veggie intake. But more importantly, to create those lifelong habits that will last all year round.

There are so many benefits to eating more greens. They boast of vitamins like A, C, and K. And are full of minerals, such as iron, calcium, and magnesium. Greens, especially dark leafy greens, have phytonutrients that help boost the immune system and reduce inflammation.

We all know eating more veggies is important but it can be hard to actually eat them every day. So how do you actually do it? Here are my top 5 ways to sneak in more greens...and enjoy it too!

Wrap them up

Choose Swiss chard greens, collard greens or romaine lettuce instead of a tortilla wrap to add more veggies to your meal. Or make these Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Wraps that are loaded with veggies + will take you to someplace tropical.

Make a stir-fry

Stir fry is my go-to meal on those busy weeknights that I forgot to plan anything. Add spinach, chopped Brussel sprouts, kale as well as any other veggies you love, like bell peppers, carrots, and snap peas to a pan. Saute until tender and top with coconut aminos for a quick weeknight meal.

Sip them in a smoothie

One of my favorite ways to add greens is in a Power Smoothie! Key is to choose milder tasting greens like spinach or kale. This will take your smoothie to the next level by adding in some extra nutrients. Add some nut butter, coconut water and frozen cherries for the perfect combo.

Roast them into chips

Probably the most fun way to eat your greens is making them into crispy chips. Kale is my go to choice to make into chips, my girls even lot it! Reach for kale, beet greens or chard for a healthy baked snack. Rum the leaves with coconut oil or olive oil and bake at 350  for 10-15 minutes or until crispy. Be sure to watch carefully, they can burn easily.

Add them to your eggs

Add sauteed broccoli, zucchini, swiss chard, or asparagus to your scramble, egg bake, omelet or frittata for the perfect protein + veggie-filled meal.
