I cut up veggies and put them in a bag so I can grab them as a snack when I'm on the go.

I also like to add veggies to recipes, like mixed vegetables in meatloaf or pureeing cauliflower to add to mashed potatoes. I cook for my mother who hates vegetables so this is a way to get them in without her realizing.

I love veggies though have to be careful with balancing my fibre with IB, so I have a juicer and get lots of veggie that way, then I freeze the pulp left over (peeled and washed) and freeze them. Then when making a soup or spaghetti sauce, meatloaf whatever I add in the pulp (not all at once) to control my fibre. I do the same with fruits too, use the juice in my protein smoothie, save the pulp for future, and sometimes just have the fruit juice, so much better than processed.

I realize that my needs may be a bit different but I like this way of getting around the veggie servings.

Cheers all

Karen

I like the Ronzoni garden pasta, each serving of it has a serving of veggies built in. Tastes good too.

LOVIN' the veggie soup! And I visit the farmer's market often & load up on fresh fruits & veggies. I leave bowls on my counter & pick often! You'd be surprised how many servings you'll get bumped up to! I'm always around 8-10!

Vegging up the soup is a great way to get there. I also love adding roasted vegetables to my omelet. This morning I had Black bean, sweet potato, turnip, squash, onion and garlic medley (bought already prepared fromt he store) in my omelet with just a sprinkle of fresh parmesean cheese on top. Very savory and satisfying.

My Dr. says that soaking fruits and veggies in a sinkful of water with vinegar is the safetest way to assure yourself they are safe to eat. And there's no aftertaste.

Regardless of how you have your veggies, mixed in your food or on the side, when you get home from the grocery store, immediately wash all your veggies like carrots, celery, radishes, etc. and store them in a ziploc bag. That way, they are always washed and ready to go when you are! That tip has helped me in the past because sometimes just washing and prepping veggies can deter me from eating them when I'm in a hurry!!! emoticon emoticon

Like many of the others here, I add a side salad to both lunch and dinner. Great way to get more food for less calories into both of those meals, and get your veggies! I also love baby carrots and hummus as a snack... it's a regular on my nutrition plan!

I love subway hoagies on wheat. I usually get a veggie delight and ask them to take out some of the dough from inside the roll and just pack in all the veggies. I top it with yellow mustard and Im good to go.

If Im eating a food like chili I will throw it on top of fresh spinach leaves.

I go to the salad bar in the cafe next to my work. When I get to pick wart I eat, I love it. I don't have to do the prep work or shopping and I only get what I like. I also get all of the veggies the sub, burrito, or things like that can hold.

I used to be given the encouragement of the saying, " How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time." I don't need to eat an elephant.

I want to reward myself with books and get exposed to different authors and subjects. If you have a favorite book, subject, author, series, etc. to suggest, leave a comment on my Spark page or Spark mail me.

I agree with the veggie tray in the fridge!! I also grate carrots onions zucchini mushrooms or whatever I have on hand to put into meatloaf or meatballs. Soups are also a good way to pack lots of veggies in.

I sneak pureed veggies into sauces. The other night I put shredded carrot into a meatloaf and it was really good.

I am always on the go and seeming to miss out on as many servings of vegetables as I should be having. I always snack on fruit and meet those amounts fine.

What do you find easiest for meeting your intake needs and having it easily accessible?
