Flexitarian!


Incorporating more vegetables into your diet can be a fun and creative process.


It’s important to note that a plant-based diet emphasizes whole, minimally processed foods, limits or avoids animal products, and focuses on plants, including vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, seeds, and nuts4. However, the extent to which a person includes animal products in their diet can vary. For instance, some people may choose to follow a flexitarian diet, which is primarily plant-based but includes some animal products.


1. Start Your Day with Vegetables: Add vegetables to your breakfast. This could be in the form of a vegetable omelet, avocado toast, or a green smoothie⁶.


2. Snack on Veggies: Keep cut vegetables like carrots, cucumbers, and bell peppers in the fridge for a quick and healthy snack. You can also pair them with a tasty dip like hummus or guacamole⁶⁵.


3. Add Vegetables to Your Main Dishes: You can add extra vegetables to your pasta, pizza, or stir-fry. This not only increases your vegetable intake but also adds flavor and texture to your meals⁶⁴.


4. Try Vegetable-Based Swaps: Replace pasta with spiralized vegetables like zucchini or use lettuce leaves as a wrap instead of bread⁶⁴.


5. Experiment with Different Cooking Methods: Grilling, roasting, or steaming vegetables can bring out different flavors and make them more enjoyable⁶⁷.


6. Make Veggie-Packed Soups and Stews: Soups and stews are great ways to pack in a variety of vegetables. You can even puree vegetables to make them the base of your soup⁴⁵.


7. Get Creative with Salads: Salads don't have to be boring. Try adding a variety of colorful vegetables, nuts, seeds, and a tasty dressing to make your salads more exciting⁶.


The key is to enjoy a variety of vegetables in your diet as they each provide different nutrients. So, don't be afraid to try new vegetables and recipes⁴⁵⁶. Happy eating! 🥦🥕🍅
