How to get in more GREENS ✨ In today’s YouTube video I did a Q+A answering some of your most common nutrition questions, like how to reduce bloating, my thoughts on fake meat alternatives, starting a plant-based diet, and how to get in more greens! 🌿 I was so happy to answer this because I get this question all the time with my one-on-one nutrition clients! I go into way more detail in the video (link in bio!) but here’s a few tips:
🌿 Think of adding them in, not taking something else away. You don’t need to completely swap your meal for a salad to get in those greens. Instead, try adding a handful to meals you’re already making, like stir fries, noodle bowls, pastas, and soups!
🌿Find a green you like. If you hate kale, don’t force yourself to eat it. Find greens that you LOVE to eat- you’ll enjoy them more, and you’re more likely to eat more of them, which means even more nutrients!
🌿 Try new ways of cooking greens. Honestly, I hate wilted spinach. The flavor is so strong to me and the texture reaaaaally doesn’t do it for me. Instead, I prefer fresh spinach, or spinach in smoothies! Play around with how you eat greens (roasting, steaming, sauté, raw), and if you really can’t find a way, refer to the previous tip.
🌿Know that greens aren’t the be all and end all. Yes, I think we should all eat more greens. But we still have to consider the other veggies, too! Different colored veggies have different nutrients, so make sure you’re eating the rainbow!
