I really don't like vegetables but I want to eat them to be healthy. What are some ways you suggest to eat them that I might not mind?

Vegetables are definitely an important part of a healthy diet. It’s a great thing that you are interested in eating them and it is not hard to help them taste good too. Many people are particular about how vegetables are prepared and served. For example, some adore steamed broccoli and carrots but can’t stand them raw. On the flip side, some dislike spinach that has been cooked but love raw spinach salad. So, it could be helpful to experiment with different cooking methods for vegetables in order to change the flavor. And, you can certainly add hints of flavor when serving up vegetables. Add a splash of lemon or lime juice after steaming up veggies or garnish with delicious herbs and spices (lemon pepper, garlic, oregano, etc.)

Another great way to infuse flavor with produce is to stuff them! Mushrooms, bell pepper, artichokes, and tomatoes can be stuffed full of various spices and topped with breadcrumbs and cheese! I get my nieces and nephews to eat their veggies by serving them with a delicious dip. Various store bought hummus or black bean dips are delicious or you can check out the Old Orchard recipes section for more ideas!

Finally, pairing fruits with vegetables creates a healthy but delicious meal! Make a spinach salad by Combining spinach with mandarin oranges and strawberries or top asparagus with nuts and a homemade raspberry vinaigrette.
