Orange veggies like pumpkin, carrots, butternut squash, and sweet potatoes are rich in vitamin A and iron. They also add color, texture, and sweetness to a smoothie. Spinach, kale, broccoli, and green peppers are also great options for a smoothie as they are rich in essential nutrients needed for your daily diet. You can combine the greens with a sweet fruit to enhance the flavor, making it easier to consume them.
You can even decide a day of the week/month when you will include a vegetable you don’t normally do, or a veggie that you or your kids dislike. Decide a day of the week when you will go meatless or a week every month when you will have only vegetarian food. That way you will be including more vegetables in your diet.
Eating your vegetables isn’t as hard as you thought. All you have to do is hide them in a dish or a smoothie or add something to make them more flavorful. Before you know it, you and your kids will be craving for the dishes that contain vegetables, and you won’t be able to keep them in the house.
