New Cooking Ideas for Your Fresh Vegetables

By Stephen R. Farris

Getting burned out on cooking and eating the same old fresh vegetables? Then why not change up the pace and try out some new veggie recipes and still maintain your healthy daily diet.

A New Spin for Pizza

Traditional pizza dough is full of carbs, and when it comes to a low-carb diet, you may try switching to this method instead -- cauliflower pizza dough. All it takes is some finely ground up cauliflower, eggs, and almond flour. You can add some of your favorite herbs and seasonings to incorporate into the dough as well. Once the dough is rolled out, top it with a few of your favorite veggies such as onion, green, red, or yellow bell peppers, spinach, and add a protein if you like. And of course, don't forget the sauce and cheese!

Smoothies Anyone?

There's nothing like starting your day with a fresh blended smoothie. The great thing about making smoothies is that you can add just about any nutritious ingredient you like. In this case, think about veggies. You can still get your daily amount of green, leafy vegetables by adding some to your smoothie mix. Think about all those nutrients you'll be getting just as if you had prepared those green delicacies as a side dish for dinner, except this time you can drink them instead. For even more added flavor, throw in a bit of fresh pineapple, a few blue or black berries, or some avocado. The combinations are endless when it comes to making healthy smoothie drinks.

Casserole Carousel

If you've ever cooked a casserole, you know most of the main ingredients are meat, cheese, potatoes, and rice or pasta. While the meat, cheese, and maybe the potatoes could be considered healthy, the rice and pasta may put this unique dish into high-carb mode. So, instead of using rice and pasta to make a healthier casserole, substitute either of them with your favorite veggies instead. Try green beans, spinach, zucchini, carrots, broccoli, celery, whichever one you choose, or you can even use a combination of them. 

Healthier Choices

Choosing to eat healthier can be difficult at times when trying to choose the right foods. However, you can't go wrong by choosing fresh vegetables, plus they not only give you the nutrients your body needs, you can be more creative when it comes to cooking them.
