In 2017, the CDC found that as much as 90 percent of the American population doesn’t eat enough vegetables. It’s not that surprising. Getting enough vegetables in the diet can be difficult, especially when so many of us eat on the go.
But researchers and nutritionists say you should be eating at least five servings of vegetables a day. You might even need more depending on your body type, health needs, and physical activity. For most of us, five servings of vegetables a day seem impossible…even for those of us who enjoy eating veggies.
And if you have young kids, you know it’s not always easy to get them to eat vegetables. At times, it seems as though kids are determined to live off of nothing but snacks. It’s no wonder so many parents feel stumped as to how to get them to get those important nutrients.
But even as an adult, it can be hard to consume adequate vitamins and minerals. Whether you eat in a rush or just hate the taste of broccoli, you might be looking for options to get more greens in your diet. Here are 75 ways to add vegetables to your daily meals…not just for you but the entire family… adults and kids alike.
