Would You Like Veggies With That?
Thursday, July 16, 2015
We all know how important it is to eat plenty of fruits and veggies, but not always sure how to squeeze some extra into our menu planning without feeling like we're forcing ourselves (or the kids and hubby). Honestly, a tablespoon of sauce on a pizza really isn't going to cut it. Some things have veggies wonderfully as part of the main attraction - like veggie pizza! There needs to be more ideas! Please share your faves~!
BTW, we love peas! Peas with mac n cheese, fish and potatoes, perogies, Ramen noodles, ... I'd once used some left-over peas in some chili that I made, and it was sooo good! Adds a bit of sweetness!
Raw, cut veggies are great with just about any kind of take-out style food, burgers, hot dogs, pizza, wings. Caesar salad goes well with lots of those, too! MMMM
Corn with pork, beef, chicken, put some in your chili, ...
When we get Chinese food, I load up on the veggie dishes. MMMMMM That goes for pot luck, too!
Subs, sandwiches, pitas, etc, follow the lead of the big chains - pile those raw veggies, high!!! Lettuce, tomato, cucumber, peppers, onion, ......
Green salads just not satisfying enough? It's amazing what a difference it makes to add some cheese, beans, hard-boiled egg, a bit of meat, and/or a wee bit of your favourite dressing. Any salad can become a satisfying meal!
What's your favourite way to add veggies to your day?
