5 Ways To Increase Your Vege Intake

Vegetables Are Carbs!

Hold on now Ketonians! That doesn't mean you have to live on meat and coconut oil from now on!

Vegetables are actually good for you. I know! Who would have thought!? They're full of vitamins and minerals that keep your body going! Amazing huh?!

Ok. Sarcasm over. Lets get serious.

I am always amazed at how many people don't like vegetables. Where I used to live in the UK, the only vegetables I saw were potatoes and peas (usually of the mushy variety found in chip shops).

When people are so used to eating the same things every day, a new flavour such as a different vegetable can be jarring for the senses.

So, with that in mind, I have collated a list of 5 ways that you can hide more veges into your diet without going into sensory overload.

1. Make Soup

I used to make chicken soup in the winter that was mainly, chicken, chicken stock, leeks and potatoes. That was it and it tasted fairly nice.

I recently came across a recipe in the clever guts diet book that had a tonne of veges in, without tasting like it did.
