How To Eat Fresh Vegetables – Ideas For Working More Veggies

   By: Robb Ksiazek

Fresh, uncooked veggies are so healthy and it’s important to work them into your meal plan somewhere. The majority of American’s don’t eat enough vegetables and most vegetables consumed in the American diet are cooked potatoes in the form of french fries. American’s need more vegetables in their diet – and not in the form of crispy fries.

To work more fresh uncooked vegetables into your diet, try eating more salads. Salads are a great source of vegetables and are a great appetizer to any meal (or meal themselves). Try these salad toppings for a wholesome gourmet salad:



  • Tomatoes

  • Cucumber

  • Broccoli

  • Cheese (blue, mozzarella, cheddar, pepper-jack, feta, or other)

  • Raisins

  • Nuts (pecans, walnuts, sunflower seeds)

  • Hard Boiled Eggs

  • Onions (green, red, sweet-yellow are all excellent)

  • Bell Peppers (any color)

  • Spinach

  • Celery

  • Cauliflower

  • Bean Sprouts or Alfalfa Sprouts

  • Avocado or Guacamole

  • Meats (steak, chicken, shrimp, etc.)

  • Fruit (raspberries, strawberries, grapes)




Another great way of getting more fresh vegetables into your diet is by snacking on them. Buy baby carrots or other vegetables as a healthy alternative to chips. They don’t have the cholesterol or sugar that processed snacks have and are filled with healthy vitamins, minerals and enzymes that your body so desperately needs. If you are not a fan of eating vegetables alone, there are great dips that accompany fresh veggies that are healthy, too.

Try these great tips in eating more vegetables – and live a longer and healthier life!
