Vegetables are something people either love to eat or avoid like it is poisonous. I remember when broccoli would gross me the f*ck out. Now as a 22 year old, I am eating more vegetables than I ever did!
For you picky eaters out there, you are going to learn that vegetables can taste delicious. Next time you head to the grocery store be sure to check out all the seasonal produce! This will force you to try
When adding more vegetables to your plate, it is better to add as much color as possible. It is too easy to get caught up eating the same thing over and over again. You’ll either get sick of it real quick or develop an intolerance.
These 3 recipes are some of my favorite ways to get more vegetables in! What’s great is they all take less than 30-minutes to make, you can make double batches for later, and you won’t lose any flavor! There’s a recipe for breakfast, lunch/dinner, and dessert (yes you read that right dessert)!
Almond Blueberry Muffin Cauliflower Oats
This is a super quick breakfast that is packed with nutrients. There’s a full cup of cauliflower rice in there! The texture is a bit different than typical oats, but you can easily sub half for oats if you’d like. The cauliflower oats become creamy with the use of nut milk and coconut flour to thicken it up! Top it off with nut butter and more blueberries for a delicious breakfast. You can find the recipe here!
Gluten Free Chicken Pesto Pizza
Yes that is pizza! You won’t even know that the crust is completely made out of vegetables. It is a a cauliflower crust that you can find pretty much at any grocery store! I used Caulipower plain pizza crust for this recipe. You can add more vegetables and some protein with your toppings! The pizza is made in under 30-minutes and is perfect for dinner and as leftovers for lunch. This is a pesto chicken pizza (which you probably figured by the name) and it can be found here!
Pumpkin Chai Snickerdoodle Cookies
We have to have dessert! These cookies are loaded with warm spices and pumpkin. This recipe is a must make during the cold months especially paired with a cup of tea. The cookies are freezer-friendly and honestly taste better frozen! Top with your choice of nut butter (and dark chocolate) to curb that craving. These cookies have only has 2 tbsp of maple syrup, which won’t put you in a sugar high. The cookie recipe can be found here!
I truly hope these recipe inspire you to try something new this week! I’d love it if you would tag me on Instagram to see what you all make!
