Picky Eater? Tips for Integrating More Veggies When You Don’t Like Them

Vegetables are an essential part of a healthy diet, but they can be tough to choke down if you don’t like them. The good news is there are a number of ways to integrate more veggies into your diet without sacrificing taste.

Here are a few tips:

  • Start small. If you’re not used to eating a lot of vegetables, don’t try to force yourself to eat a whole plate of them at once. Start by adding a small serving of vegetables to one meal per day. You can gradually increase the amount of vegetables you eat as you get more comfortable with them.

  • Find vegetables you like. Not all vegetables are created equal. There are a wide variety of vegetables available, so there’s sure to be some that you enjoy. Experiment with different vegetables until you find some that you like.

  • Prepare vegetables in a way that you enjoy. Vegetables can be prepared in a number of different ways. Some people like their vegetables steamed or boiled, while others prefer them roasted or grilled. Experiment with different cooking methods until you find some that you like.

  • Add vegetables to your favorite dishes. You can add vegetables to almost any dish. For example, you can add spinach to your omelet, broccoli to your stir-fry, or sweet potato to your chili.

  • Make vegetables fun. There are a number of ways to make vegetables more fun to eat. For example, you can cut vegetables into fun shapes or dip them in your favorite sauce. You can also make vegetable smoothies or popsicles.

Here are a few additional tips:

  • Don’t be afraid to use seasonings. Vegetables can be bland, but they don’t have to be. Try adding salt, pepper, herbs, and spices to your vegetables to make them more flavorful.

  • Hide vegetables in other foods. If you really don’t like the taste of vegetables, you can try hiding them in other foods. For example, you can add pureed vegetables to smoothies, soups, and sauces. You can also add grated vegetables to meatballs, burgers, and casseroles.

  • Make vegetables the star of the meal. Vegetables don’t always have to be a side dish. You can make vegetables the main course of your meal. For example, you can make a vegetable stir-fry, vegetable lasagna, or vegetable soup.

Eating more vegetables is an important part of a healthy diet. By following these tips, you can integrate more vegetables into your diet without sacrificing taste.
