3 Ways to Love Your Veggies

3 Ways to Love Your Veggies

Bored with the same old salads and green juice? Time to get creative! Check out these fun ideas for falling in love with your vegetables allover again.

  1. Spiral Your Squash: Get your pasta fix by putting yellow squash or zucchini into a spiralizer, then sautéing the “noodles” lightly in olive oil. Just toss them with your favorite marinara and you have a low carb, high fiber dish. If you are still craving real pasta, you can do half and half. Don’t have a spiralizer? Use a peeler to create squash: ribbons”.
  1. Shave Your Sprouts: Cur Brussels sprouts in half, then carefully use a mandolin slicer to thinly shave them. You can sauté them in oil and season or drizzle on a balsamic vinaigrette for a salad.
  1. Fry” Your Sweet Potatoes: You probably already order sweet potato fries at restaurants every chance you get. Why not make a healthy version at home? All you have to do is peel two medium sweet potatoes, then slice lengthwise. Lightly coat them in coconut oil and bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes. Turn halfway through.
