Use our Fiber Plus – delicious veggie sides selection to help you break the ‘meat and potatoes’ mentality so many of us have, and make the move towards increasing the veggies and fiber you eat with your lean proteins. It’s one of the hardest eating habits to overcome, a state of mind where there’s no room for greens and other healthful fiber rich veggies only starchy potatoes or white rice will do. The thinking runs along the lines of “veggies don’t taste good, they’re boring, they take too much time to prep and are a bother to make, they don’t fill me up etc”. Not so. Fiber actually makes food more filling. and on the prep side, to keep the fiber we keep the peel, so that’s one job less to do. Try starting out with simply roasting veggies like carrots, beets or broccoli – they take a jiffy to prep and require no cooking skill to make. And as for dark leafy greens like collards, spinach and kale, for fast prep and cooking use boxed baby leaves or buy them pre-cut and bagged. And the flavors! We promise these veggie sides taste so good they will fast become the stars of your plate. Enjoy!
