Mix up your veggie repertoire!
Veggies are good for the body–most people wouldn’t argue with that. Yet we don’t always eat as many as we should. This may be because we get tired of the same ol’ dishes we’ve been serving for years. We need to mix up our routine with tasty new vegetable varieties. These 25 ways to prepare delicious veggies will help you to add vegetable goodness to your daily routine.
Veggie-Up Your Life
Women ages 19 to 50 should eat 2.5 cups of vegetables each day. Choosing vegetables prepared in a healthy way (i.e. without heaping gobs of cheese) reduces the risk of chronic ailments, including heart disease and type 2 diabetes as well as some types of cancer. Veggies work their magic by delivering a superhero-worthy list of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other good-for-you substances.
Serving veggies doesn’t need to be boring; and you don’t need to smother them with heavy sauces to make them taste yummy. In fact, clean-eating vegetable recipes, like the dishes we’re sharing below, allow you to serve veggies by using non- or minimally-processed ingredients that are good for your body and health.
