These 7 Awesome Tricks Can Get Anyone To Eat Greens!

Struggling with them greens? Here’s an idea - sneak them in like trained ninjas.

Greens are a must for our diet. They provide us with essential vitamins and minerals. Now, apart from vegetarians and vegans, people, many a times, tend to bypass eating vegetables in quantities that are required. Why? Taste issues, of course!

Let’s solve this problem for you by introducing a few simple and delicious ways of sneaking greens into your meals:


  • Stir-fry them in – Fried food is always yummy. Slip in your greens in a stir-fried hot pot, and you won’t mind eating them. My favourite is a mix of broccoli, mushrooms (for texture), spring onions, and tomatoes (for colour) – sautéed with salt, pepper, and butter!  
  • Kale chips – Have you had them yet? Mix some salt, pepper, and oil with bite-sized kale, and bake till crisp. Sprinkle some roasted cumin powder, and your tasty greens are ready! This can be a perfect midday snack!

3. Go for a salad – Salads are refreshing, especially when they accompany heavy main courses. Cucumbers, lettuce, broccoli, peas, baby spinach, and Brussel sprouts are some of the green veggies that you can throw in a salad. Top with a nice dressing and some salt and pepper, and you won’t even feel that you are chomping on your greens!


4. Sip a green smoothie – I mean delicious green smoothie – some spinach (boiled), a seasonal fruit (mango or banana), some cocoa powder to give it a chocolate-like flavour, or lemon. You can add some water if it is too thick. Smoothies are great as coolers, and provide instant nourishment.


5. Stuff in sandwiches – Sandwiches are great for breakfast. A well-stuffed sandwich will give you the required nutrients and satiety at the start of the day. Now, along with your favourite protein, put some greens into your sandwich – lettuce, rocket leaves, or maybe some shredded cabbage. Be sure to sneak in the greens that you would normally not eat!

6. Pickle ‘em – Pickle your greens – they will definitely become tastier. Mustard greens, collard greens, jalapeno etc. can be easily pickled. Wash and dry these greens. Mix salt, pepper, vinegar, sugar, and water in a pot, and bring to a boil. Add the greens, and cook for a couple of minutes. Cool and refrigerate.      


7. Add them to your soup – A tasty chicken soup can be rich in greens, if you know how to make it right. A vegetable soup can be tasty too, with the right mix of seasoning, and a creamy texture. Whichever the case, boil and purée the green vegetables before adding them to the soup, and one won’t get to know that the veggies are present – a trick for a treat!
