Get Adventurous With Your Veggies

Vegetables are a nutritional powerhouse!

The naturally occurring enzymes help the body break down cooked foods and cultivate a healthy community of beneficial bacteria.

This digestive support is extremely helpful especially during the beginning of the program when your gut is still healing.

Our recommendation is that you consume 70% of your vegetables raw.

Here are a few tips to spice up your meal plan and add more veggies.

1. ADD A GREEN SMOOTHIE

Try a green smoothie with your favorite veggies and fruits as an occasional meal replacement or nutritious breakfast option.

Greens like spinach, baby kale, or even beet greens have a mild taste and are great to use as a smoothie base.

2. ADD SWEET VEGGIES

Try a new veggie like fennel which has a sweet taste.

It’s high in fiber and is great for a stand-alone snack or filled with a protein like cottage cheese for a meal.

3. REPLACE SALADS WITH LETTUCE WRAPS

Try wrapping burgers or any grilled protein in leafy greens like romaine or rainbow Swiss chard.

Use butter lettuce as a bowl for our Chili, Sloppy Joe, or Chicken Salad recipe.

5. BAKE KALE CHIPS

Spray some Bragg Liquid Amino’s over kale and bake until crisp for a delicious snack!

6. SAUTE VEGGIES

Use 1-2 tsp of Grapeseed or Coconut Oil and garlic to saute veggies like peppers, onions, spinach, beet greens, and zucchini.

Add your favorite spices and 3 egg whites and you have a complete meal.

7. CROCK-POT VEGETABLE SOUP

Make a large serving of soup in a crockpot and serve it with some raw veggies for a complete meal.
