Don’t Like Vegetables?
How Do You Eat Lots of Vegetables if You Don’t Like Vegetables! From the book “The Miraculous Power of Fruits and Vegetables” by Robert C Hoffman.
There are many reasons that people can struggle to get all of the fruits and vegetables they need in their diet. Maybe they’re extremely busy and don’t have time to shop for fresh food/cook healthy meals. Maybe they don’t have much cash and find that buying ready meals is cheaper.
There is another reason that is easy to overlook though: a lot of people simply don’t like fruits and vegetables! More specifically, a lot of people have big issues with vegetables. And if that describes you, you need to think about what you can do to solve the problem! In this presentation, we’ll look at some easy fixes for that slight issue.
Put Them in Cooking
One simply way to get yourself to eat more vegetables, is to put them in your cooking. You might not like mushrooms for instance, but if they are inside a bolognaise, then you might not notice them!
And if that doesn’t work? Another option is to grate them. Grating things like carrot into a mix really does make them impossible to taste, while still offering all the same benefits.
Try Some Sauce
You might find that the fruit or vegetable you don’t like works much better with a sauce or a dip. Celery is helped greatly by a little humus for example! Seasoning is also a good option.
If you haven’t found a vegetable you like yet… keep trying! Vegetables come in all shapes and sizes, and there are hundreds and hundreds of them. Keep trying different types, and you’re sure to find at least some that you like. And that’s just fine! You don’t have to eat the same few vegetables that everyone else does (carrots, broccoli, peas). As long as you know how to source the type of vegetable that you do like, you’ll still get the amazing benefits of eating vegetables.
Have a Soup or Smoothie
One vegetable might not taste great to you, but blended up into a soup or a smoothie you might just find you can get away with it!
This is not the same by any stretch. Taking a multivitamin is NOT as good as eating real vegetables. But if you absolutely cannot stomach the thought of broccoli, then having a supplement of some sort will help at least to some degree. It’s the next best thing!
