Halloween has come and gone, and holiday prepping is in full swing. Between all of the leftover candy from trick-or-treating, holiday sweets and comforting meals at family and office parties, you’re likely not keeping your daily veggie intake top of mind.
Now is the time most of us could use a boost when it comes to enjoying more greens, especially with kiddos often being picky eaters. Although eating veggies can be looked at as a chore – there are several tips and recipes that will inspire to get your daily dose. Here are some ideas to spice up those vegs:
Sprinkle Some Sweets
We all love caving into our sweet tooth – so why not do so with vegetables? There are several ways you can make your greens less boring and add some sweetness to them. Try taking Libby’s® Sliced Carrots and adding a mixture of cinnamon and brown sugar to them or trying this Sautéed Peas with Honey and Feta recipe.
Sneak Them In
A perfect way to incorporate more veggies is to sneak them into your favorite recipes. The kids won’t even notice there are greens in Haylie Duff’s delicious Mixed Veggie & Chicken Quesadilla made with Libby’s® Mixed Vegetables Pouch. You can also take classic recipes, such as creamy mac & cheese, and add your favorite Libby’s® vegetables – this way, you won’t have to sacrifice taste!
Dip Them In
When a snack attack strikes, veggies aren’t always the first thing we crave, but you’ll be much more tempted to eat them when dip is made to dunk in. Bring your favorite veggies with you to work and pack them in lunchboxes with some Sweet Pea Dip and Smoky Carrot Hummus.
