Eating vegetables first thing in the morning is a great way to start your day. Here’s how to eat more vegetables for breakfast!

If you’re having eggs or an omelet you can easily add in some vegetables.

A great tip for making this even easier is to save your leftover vegetables from the night before and add them to your breakfast.

This will save you time, get you to eat more vegetables, and use up your leftovers!

We always cook with a cast-iron skillet because it cooks more evenly and will last you forever!


It’s easy to grab a bag of chips for a snack but it’s better for you to snack on vegetables if you want to figure out how to eat more vegetables.

The reason chips are so easy is because they’re ready but vegetables can be easy too.

To make your vegetables easy to snack on, cut them ahead of time and put them in a container in the refrigerator.

Also, have some healthy dips on hand like organic ranch and hummus to dip them in.

My kids go crazy for this snack and it definitely gets them to eat more vegetables!

We use glass food storage containers to keep sliced veggies fresh in the refrigerator. So easy!


As a busy mom, I’m always running around feeding someone else and it’s easy to forget to take care of myself.

That’s why I absolutely LOVE powdered greens.

I mix them in with milk or apple juice in a shaker bottle for a quick and easy drink.

Then I know however busy I get, at least I got in a serving of vegetables!


A perfect way to get in some lettuce for lunch is to make a leftovers salad.

All you have to do it take your leftovers from the night before and add them onto a bed of lettuce.

Then top it with your favorite healthy dressing and some cheese and you’re good to go!

It’s quick and easy and you’re eating more vegetables!


Lighten up your dinner by swapping vegetable noodles for traditional spaghetti noddles.

You can make your own using a veggie pasta maker!

You can also buy a spaghetti squash that can be baked and scraped out.

It comes out just like noodles and once you put your sauce and toppings on it, you won’t even realize you’re not eating traditional noodles!


If you wondering how to eat more vegetables and fruits, smoothies and juice are a great option.

If you’re at home, try blending frozen greens with some fruit and milk or yogurt. It’s quick, easy, and tastes amazing!

Smoothies are also great if you are trying to detox from sugar.

If you have a juicer you can experiment with a bunch of vegetable juice blends.

If you’re on the go, there are organic cold-pressed juices to keep you hydrated and getting your vegetables in!


If you want to know how to eat more vegetables when you don’t like them, try baking!

I LOVE baking with vegetables. When my first child turned one year old, I made him chocolate zucchini cupcakes.

Everyone at his party couldn’t believe they had zucchini in them!

There are also many recipes online for muffins and bread with vegetables in them.

You’ll never even know you’re eating vegetables and kids love them!

You’ll need a good vegetable grater to get the veggies nice and small to hide in muffins, bread, or cupcakes.

I hope you enjoyed these tips to help you eat more vegetables. Tell me in the comments what your favorite way to get your vegetables in is!
