Making the most out of your veggies

Hate vegetables? Well I did too...until I realized I was doing it all wrong.

It's super important to eat vegetables. They are full of essential nutrients, enzymes, minerals and fiber. All of these components are critical for proper health. The fact is that most people don't eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables they should. Mot people I ask tell me that they don't like the way they taste. They are typically steaming and boiling them, which is NO way to bring out the flavor in vegetables. Marinating and seasoning your vegetables is KEY.

Roasting, smoking, grilling, air frying and seasoning your vegetables will have you wanting vegetables like you (and )) want cake.

Here are some tips to have you (and your family) eating vegetables in no time.


1. Add seasonings like Himalayan salt, pepper and lemon pepper to vegetables like sliced zucchini and squash. Add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil toss and let marinate before you either roast them in the oven or put them on the grill.


2. Wine and butter. Seriously who doesn’t like this combination? Sautéing things like mushrooms or brussels sprouts, and even broccoli at a high temperature to see her them and create some crunch is essential. Deglaze the pan with some organic white wine and add your favorite vegan butter at the end. Salt and pepper and you have vegetable restaurant- quality side dishes.


3. Charring. This is actually my favorite way to cook broccoli. I add a couple tablespoons of avocado oil or extra-virgin olive oil to a pan and turn it up pretty high, I throw in my fresh broccoli stems put a lid on it and allow the heat to do the work. After three or four minutes the broccoli is nice and toasted turn it over for another minute or two. Add salt butter and garlic powder and it’s done. You’ll be shocked how delicious and simple this broccoli recipe. this is actually my favorite way to cook broccoli.

Mushy broccoli is a no no. You will be shocked how delicious and simple this broccoli recipe is!


I think you’re starting to get the picture now. You can do this with any vegetable you want! The point is to try to eat vegetables at least twice a day whether that’s a lunch dinner or breakfast. C'mon now, with these tips I know you can do it!
