5 Simple Ways To Add More Green Veggies Into Your Diet

Eating plenty of green veggies adds quality fibre, nutrients and volume to your meals. Fibre from green vegetables is important for healthy digestion, weightloss and wellbeing. As green vegetables are low in calories, they can help you turn a low calorie „poverty macro“ meal into a bigger more satiating meal. Try these tips to add a little more taste and variety to your greens.

 

  1. Zucchini Proats

 

Okay so mixing zucchini into your protein oatmeal might sound a little weird at first (at least I thought so) but this has become a staple in my comp prep diet. As your calories get lower and serving sizes decrease, you can simply add volume to your protein oats by mixing in zucchini puree. It’s also a great way to sneak in a serving of green veggies without really noticing, due to the mild taste and protein powder flavor (for those who are not too fond of greens).

 

 

  1. Stir Fry

 

Super easy to prepare in bulk. Just get a few different kinds of green vegies, wash, chop and fry i.e. with coconut oil and soy sauce. Once finished cooking, weigh out equal portions and store in the fridge/freezer so you have them ready to go. Just add a protein source and make it a meal.

 

Macro tracking tip:

Save time by creating a recipe in your tracking app (i.e. my macros+) so you don’t have to add each item individually every time you have a serving.

 

  1. Green smoothies

 

It can be as simple as adding a cup of raw baby spinach to your regular protein smoothie. Including fruit like banana or berries in the blend will also cover up any mild veggie taste.

 

 

  1. Muffin Frittatas

 

Egg muffins are delicious and super quick and easy to make. Simply blend veggies and eggs then fill the mix into a muffin tray and sprinkle with cheese then bake in the oven until done. There are endless variations and room for creativity.

 

  1. “Fancy” salads

 

Try changing up your regular salad mix with some dried or fresh fruit, nuts & seeds or even granola. Just be aware – although healthy- these foods are quite calorie dense so defintely make sure you weigh & track them as they are easy to overdo.
