1. Sandwich Lovin'Show your sandwich, and your taste buds, some love. Try adding cucumbers, onions, carrot slices, peppers, spinach, or other veggies to your usual sandwich of choice. An avocado spread can also be substituted for mayonnaise for a cleaner, greener, sandwich.
2. Pizza PicksNext time pizza cravings set in, try adding more vegetables to your topping selection. Artichokes, olives, mushrooms, and peppers all make a great choice. If you're feeling particularly ambitious, you might try making your own pizza with a cauliflower crust.
3. Green SmoothieAdd spinach to any smoothie for added nutrients without drastically altering the taste. Leafy greens help promote weight loss, healthy skin, and help manage blood pressure levels. Adding greens to a breakfast smoothie provides all the benefits of leafy greens without needing to fill a plate full of salad. If you're on-the-go, try keeping your green shake in a BlenderBottle shaker cup to keep the shake smooth if it starts to separate throughout the day.
4. Cauliflower RiceNext time a recipe calls for rice, try grating up some cauliflower instead. Cauliflower rice is great on its own, with curry, or in a vegetable stir-fry. Try it for yourself and let us know what you think.
5. Chips and Dip
Are you a big snacker? To avoid the temptation of processed/packaged food and unnecessary snacking, pack some carrot chips and guacamole in a GoStak. Carrot chips make a great substitution for potatochips, and who doesn't love some good guac?
