When I advise my nutritional clients about how to improve their eating habits, I commonly start with how to include more vegetables into their meals. Most people understand how to include protein, but they fail to consume enough veggies (and sometimes FAT, but that’s for another day) throughout the day. Carbohydrates in your diet should come predominantly from vegetables & small amounts of fruit. Vegetables are HEALTHY carbohydrates….yes, veggies are CARBS….I can’t tell you how many people do not understand this basic idea. How many vegetables are you eating every day? How can you get more into your day? Roast a bunch so you have them on hand. Then puree roasted veggies (think butternut squash, broccoli, or cauliflower) with some chicken stock & 1/2 cup of coconut milk for a hearty soup. Stick them in your morning omelette. Add roasted veggies to your salad for some variety & interest. Include at least 2-3 with your dinner….it all adds up. Just get them in. Your body will thank you!
