Eat Your Vegetables Day, is the perfect opportunity to re-introduce a healthy portion of vegetables into your diet. We all know vegetables are essential for living a long, healthy life, and served right, they can be delicious! On this day you are encouraged to eat vegetables for every meal and as snacks throughout the day. I've found just adding a few extra veggies to salads, scrambled eggs, or main dishes, help you get in your five-a-day without much effort.
Eat Your Vegetables Day doesn't make me as excited as National Crème Brûlée Day or International Bacon Day, because I agree with Doug Larson, we'd be much healthier if green vegetables tasted as good as bacon, but since they don't, I've discovered a few ways to hide or enhance the taste of vegetables. I've also discovered that this isn't necessary when you get them fresh from your neighbor's garden. But since this isn't always an option below are a few of my favorite ways to Eat Your Vegetables and keep your taste buds happy, too.
- Bacon and Brussels Sprout Hash
- Carrot Fries
- Cheesy Cauliflower Popcorn
- Kale Chips
- Zucchini Mock Apple Pie
- Zucchini Parmesan Chips
