EVENING MEAL – Easy Ways To Increase Your Fruit and Veg Intake

Eating a healthier diet can often conjure up images of hard work, maximum organisation and extended preparation time. However, increasing your fruit and veg intake needn’t be like this in reality. Making incremental and easy changes to your daily diet will prove to make a vast different to your overall health and nutritional intake.

Below are some fruit and veg suggestions for midday meals that take minutes to add, helping to keep you full and satisfied until the evening.

ADDED FRUIT/VEG

Ditch pasta or noodles and instead use courgette or squash. Using a spiraliser or Julienne peeler will mean you can get this done in minutes.

Bulk our stews, soups and sauces with extra veg. Either chop them up into bite-sized chunks or puree them down so they go completely unnoticed – whatever suits the mouths you are feeding!

Use alternative vegetables as a replacement for pasta or potato when cooking hearty family meals such as lasagna or shepherds pie.

Chickpeas

For any vegetables that benefit from a longer cooking time in order to bring out a more desirable flavour, simply chop down to your chosen size, toss together with herbs and spices and roast for approximately 30 minutes at 200C. You can do this in large batches and have as part of your midday and evening meals for several days in a row.
