Is Eating Better Your New Year’s Resolution? Take Mom’s Advice and Eat Your Vegetables!
Author of Vegan Success Cookbook Offers Suggestions
SANDPOINT, Idaho — Mom was right: eating your vegetables is good for you, and vegetables should play a role in any new healthy eating program. No one knows more about vegetables than vegetarians and vegans, so Susan Daffron of Logical Expressions, Inc. offers a few tips on how people can include more vegetables in their diet, inspired by her book “Vegan Success: Scrumptious, Healthy Vegan Recipes for Busy People” (ISBN: 978-0-9749245-1-9; LCCN-2006907834).
1. Experiment with new spices. Vegetables don’t have to be dull. Incorporating more vegetables into your diet doesn’t doom a person to a life of bean sprouts and limp salads. Even easy comfort food like baked potatoes can be low-fat and tasty with added spicing and toppings.
2. Go beyond French fries and seek out new recipes for ideas. Technically French fries are vegetarian, but people who live on nothing but French fries aren’t healthy. The key to a healthy balanced diet is to eat a wide variety of different fresh foods. For ideas on preparing a certain vegetable, look through cookbooks or do a search online for recipes that use the vegetable.
3. Spend more time in the produce aisle. Don’t just pick up a head of iceberg lettuce and call it good. The more different vegetables a person eats, the easier it is to maintain good health. Today’s grocery stores are filled with a wide range of produce. Fill the cart with colorful veggies like carrots, peppers, spinach, broccoli, and tomatoes, instead of chemical-laden frozen dinners.
4. Don’t be afraid to spend some time chopping. It’s really not the end of the world to spend more than five minutes cooking dinner. Cooking doesn’t have to be drudgery; it can be fun. Make eating well a priority and involve the whole family.
5. Get over “protein fear.” Including protein in your diet is easy for vegetarians, yet people constantly fret that they won’t “get enough protein.” Many plant foods are quite high in protein, including beans, nuts, grains and various vegetables, such as broccoli and potatoes. Even carrots contain protein. Tofu contains 10-20 grams of protein and the wide range of soyfoods available now are an easy way to incorporate plenty of protein into a plant-based diet.
Eating better by including vegetables in your diet doesn’t have to be a depressing decent into food deprivation. Our bodies need the nutrients and enzymes found in vegetables, so adding more veggies might just make you feel better too.
