"Sneaky" veg suggestions
I think I've moaned about this on another post somewhere before haha!
Does anybody have any suggestions how I can incorporate my 3rd veg onto/into my EE plan meals. I'm slightly fussy about veg but I know how important it is, no problems with fruit could eat that until the cows come home it's just veg I struggle with :sigh:
grate carrots and courgette into your bolognese/chilli
mash carrots, turnip (or swede if you're a southern lol ) or celeriac into your mashed potatoes
tinned tomatoes or pasata
Pssssst... A little life saving secret I have is if you can't always be arsed to put veg in your pasta n sauce or you just want a no nonsense ham sandwich, eat a piece of fruit or 2 before or after the sandwich. Your body doesn't know that the fruit isn't part of your main meal eh? ;) always worked wonders for me.
I apply the above to every meal that doesn't contain superfree :) I don't always want salad with my tuna jacket potato lol, I'm just lazy haha
What about soup?? It 's so easy to make and I feel like it's a treat having soup before my meals. My favourite at the moment is butternut squash soup just fry chopped onions, chuck in cubes of butternut squash and add stock. Once the butternut squash cubes are soft, blend :)
You could make soups or broth and mix loads in.
And meals like bolognese, chillies, curries you can mix quite alot in xxx
I hate carrots and cabbage but always put it in soup then blend it and forget it is there.
I always put a bag of frozen sliced peppers, fine green beans, onion and mushrooms in my chilli.
Someone said in group last night that they mash all there veg in with there potatoes so that could be worth a try.
I find plenty of black pepper on my veg helps
Mashing cauliflower into potato is a good one - makes your potato go much further too for those who prefer less carbs.
I like your style Craig, I love black pepper on all my meals lol xxxx

Would also work with chilli by taking out the basil and adding fresh or dried chilli then beans as well as the mince.
Same thing works as a pasta sauce too :)
