Happy Foodie Friday!

foodie friday the lyons shareI hope your New Year is off to a great start!  Did you use one of my 7 New Year’s Resolutions that You Can Actually Keep, or one of my 7 Resolutions for your Mental Health?  If one of your goals is to include more vegetables in your daily diet, it can sometimes seem daunting.  How do you find time to prepare so many vegetables?  Aside from dinner, where can you sneak in extra veggies?  What if you’re at work in the afternoon – how do you get vegetables in then?

If you have asked yourself any of these questions, I’ve got a solution for you in today’s Foodie Friday video!  I have used this secret with many of my clients, and they love how easy it is to incorporate into their weekly routine.  This simple, 10-minute trick will ensure that you get in a few servings of veggies every single day, busy or not!  Enjoy!

*For anyone interested, I’ll be announcing a special New Year Reset in Monday’s post!  This 12-day clean-eating group coaching program will start January 12th, and is sure to get you on track to a healthy 2015!*

So tell me in the comments … Do you accept my challenge to incorporate this 10-minute secret?  What’s your favorite way to sneak in vegetables?

    I accept the challenge. I will make veggie packets with the grandkids today. 🙂

    You know I am generally opposed to the concept of ‘sneaking’ veggies. C’mon, you’re an adult, eat your freaking veggies! haha 🙂

    But I think that this is a great concept – and I think that in general making sure that there are simple ways to eat well will ensure that you DO eat well! Or at least better!

    Love this! You make it sound SO simple, but I guess it really is that simple. I often find myself cooking with half of a vegetable (half a pepper in a stir fry, half a bag of carrots in a soup, etc) so this is a great way to use the extras, make sure they don’t go to waste, and get some veggies in every day! Thanks for the motivation 🙂
