Whether you’re just a picky eater or have toddlers that gag at anything that is green, these tips will be so helpful for sneaking in those veggies!

 

  1. Hide the vegetables in a sauce.

    • Sauces are a great way to hide veggies. You can pulverize them and mix them in, or you can cook them along with it and they become soft. Some examples of this are salsa, stews, and pasta sauces.  Our Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta Sauce has 2 servings of spinach per meal, and you barely even know it’s there.
  2. Mix Vegetables with similar textures and flavors

    • Lots of vegetables have a mild taste, and can be hidden when paired with a more overpowering flavor. Some examples of this are cauliflower, chickpeas, cucumbers, spinach, and zucchini.
    • Some examples of this would be to puree cauliflower, and mix it with mashed potatoes. You could also slice sweet potatoes thin, and put them in the oven to make sweet potato chips. You wouldn’t know it, but our loaded chili potato sauce has 4 oz of chickpeas, celery, bell peppers, onions, and crushed tomatoes. My son doesn’t even know the difference, and he is getting in all of those incredible nutrients. 
  3. Dice or shred the veggies

    • When you cut them up really small, it can be easy to hide in baked goods, crusts, and smoothies. 
    • You’ve probably heard of cauliflower crust pizza, or zucchini bread. One way that we LOVE to get veggies in is with our smoothies! Our lean clean green machine smoothie has kale, spinach, pineapple, apples, and super greens. Sound good? You’ll have to try it to believe it!
