Delicious Ways to Eat More Greens

We could all stand to eat more vegetables, and for those of us who have ready access to a multitude of different varieties, getting creative with our greens might be easy. But if you aren’t seeing an abundance of veggie variety at your local grocery store, or maybe have started to slip in your health commitments, getting on track with heavy vegetable consumption can be a challenge. Don’t worry, we have some simple tips to get you motivated and have you on the road to clean nutrition.

Meal prep

The less you have to think about eating healthy the easier it will be. Give yourself and your multitasking brain a break. There are multiple benefits to meal prepping, but first and foremost it’s shown to help us make healthier choices. Once you set aside time in your busy schedule to plan and prep your weekly meals, chances are you’ll begin to eat a more nutritious and balanced diet. Not only that, but it will save you time when 7 o’clock rolls around and you’re just walking in the door after a long day. Not big into planning out fancy meals? Start small–find simple recipes that will store well in the freezer or fridge for a few days. Try out a few Mason Jar salad recipes from Jessica in the Kitchen! These on-the-go style lunches are perfect for the kid’s lunch boxes, busy businesspeople, and the athlete who’s looking for a greener lunch option between workouts.

Supplement Your Diet

Looking for more ways to grab your greens that doesn’t involve eating a salad for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? Try adding a scoop of Orgain Organic Superfoods Powder to a glass of water or a post-workout smoothie. Not only does each scoop include 50 organic super foods such as greens, fruits, and veggies, but 5 billion probiotics and 7g of fiber to keep your digestive system running smoothly.

Smoothies Smoothies Smoothies

You can pretty much hide a handful of spinach in any smoothie and instantly increase its health benefits. Spinach is among one of the healthiest leafy greens as it contains vital minerals and nutrients that supports healthy looking skin and a strong immune system. If you’re sick of the basic “green smoothie” switch up your morning recipe and give our Sweet Vanilla Green Smoothie a try. The combination of kale and spinach will give you that double dose of nourishing greens while the Orgain Sweet Vanilla Bean Plant Based Protein Powder blends perfectly into a sweet, sip-able smoothie.

Picky kids? Get them growing!

Need to get the kids on board when it comes to eating more green? Turn eating healthy into a fun, hands on project! Studies show kids are more likely to give new foods a try if they have a say in what they’re eating. Still need more incentive? Pass down your green thumb and have them help start the garden this year. Getting their hands dirty will not only teach them where their food comes from, but can also lend to a feeling of accomplishment. Let’s be honest, there’s nothing more refreshing than a crisp salad, especially when it’s freshly picked! If you’re in need of more helpful hints to get more greens take a page out of One Green Planet’s book. Let’s eat!
