Health is the new wealth. But when you’re pining for French toast piled high with syrup and blueberries, it can be tough. Besides, after craving that, who can think about having a vegetable salad instead?
But guess what? You can have the best of both! Here are 3 crafty ways to eat more veggies and get your minimum 3-a-day.
1. Eat More Veggies By Putting Them In Pancakes
Here’s the thing. Not everyone knows that foods like sweet potatoes are vegetables. So, the next time you’re rustling up a stack of pancakes, add about a half cup of sweet potatoes. You can also add butternut squash or pumpkin mash to eat more veggies according to the dietary guidelines.
