I’ve been a vegetarian for years, and it’s not because I adore nuts and leafy greens — in fact, pizza and donuts are among my favorite foods. Fortunately, there are lots of ways to get the nutrients your body needs. Since I stopped eating meat in 2016, I’ve learned how to sneak nutrition into meals and snacks I genuinely enjoy, as well as how to make vegetables yummier, and it’s allowed me to eat well without sacrificing taste.
From eating soups that are chock-full of veggies to blending smoothies with heaping spoonfuls of nut butter to drinking vitamin-packed teas, there are lots of delicious, simple ways I lovingly trick myself into eating healthy. Whether you’re vegetarian, vegan, keto, Paleo, or simply trying to eat healthier, you might benefit from my tips for adding more nutrients to your diet as well — because eating healthy doesn’t have to equal eating steamed veggies at every meal (unless you’re into that).
