Maintaining a healthy lifestyle isn’t always easy. We lead busy lives. It can be hard to find the time to fit exercise in, to do the things that we need to unwind and destress. You might find that you struggle to sleep at the end of a busy day and that you never have time to get as much sleep as you need to feel at your best. When it comes to eating, when we’re so busy, it’s all too tempting to eat fast, unhealthy food and buy sugary calorie-filled snacks on the go.

Often the hardest thing about trying to lead a healthy lifestyle is knowing how to deal with all of the conflicting advice. You could easily read about how one particular food is great for you, and then an hour later read something awful about the same thing. It can be hard to know what to do for the best. But, one thing that we all absolutely know is good for us, is veg.

Eating vegetables helps you to get the vitamins and minerals that you need to support your otherwise healthy lifestyle. It fills you up, reduces your need for unhealthy snacks. It can help you to sleep and supports your immune system. Eating more veg can help you to maintain a healthy weight. It increases your energy levels, and it can even make your diet more interesting. Here are some easy ways to eat more vegetables.

Prepare Healthy Snacks

Let’s face it, as much as we’d all like to eat healthily, it’s far easier to reach into the cupboard for a chocolate bar or biscuit than it is to chop up some vegetable sticks and prepare a healthy dip. So, start preparing and even packaging them in advance. Make sure there’s always healthy veggie snack waiting for you in your fridge.

Meal Plan

Do you find that when you are in the food store, the only meals that you can think of are easy and quick? Meal plans can make shopping easier and save you money. They can also help you to get more vegetables into your meals. Sit down every week and plan out your meals before you head to the stores.

Add More Veg to Your Old Favorites

Adding more vegetables doesn’t mean that you have to change your whole diet. Just add veg. Say your family loves a spaghetti bolognese, that’s fine. Just add some peppers, zucchini and fresh tomatoes to your usual recipe. Suddenly there’s extra veg, and you’ve got a lot more food to save in your freezer for another day.

Make Soups

Homemade soups are easy, fast and cheap. They are comforting and warming. They are also a fab way to eat more vegetables. If you’ve got any leftover veg, don’t bin it, blend it up into a soup instead.
