Do you like vegetables?
Want the nutrients of veggies, but don’t actually like the taste of them? Need to sneak more vegetables into your children’s meals? Then you should check out my secret weapon, also known as How to Eat More Vegetables without Tasting Them!
How to Eat More Vegetables without Tasting Them
I have a secret weapon when it comes to finding a way to eat more vegetables without tasting them, called The Green Stuff. I bought a juicer, and I’ll try to juice sometimes, but honestly, I just don’t like the taste or texture. Something about it triggers my gag reflex. Maybe I just haven’t found the right combination. It’s something I’m working on, but honestly, I just don’t get into drinking my vegetables. No thank you.
Another bonus of eating The Green Stuff vs. Juicing: you don’t lose all the fiber that you lose in the vegetable pulp when juicing. When you puree the entire vegetable, you get to keep a lot of those nutrients!

Something I can do is a little creative hiding. I call it “The Green Stuff” because no matter what you put into it, whether it be mushrooms, tomatoes, eggplant, etc., it usually ends up being a bright green scary (but tasty!) mush.
My “green stuff” is made from 4 types of bell peppers, Vidalia onions, garlic, broccoli, eggplant, mushrooms, green onions, squash, and zucchini. Mix them all together in your Ninja or food processor! I like to saute this and add it to spaghetti sauce, or add to ground beef.
And sometimes I even like to throw the veggified ground beef and the veggified spaghetti sauce together. Look out–there’s a crazy woman on the loose!
I tend to sneak this into my recipes whenever there is a non-vegetable eater coming over, and I have not had any complaints yet!
I like to keep batches of the pureed vegetables in my freezer to use in all sorts of things–pizza sauce, soup bases, etc. It’s a wonderful way to get lots of extra vegetables, even if you don’t particularly like eating those types of vegetables like my husband.
Adding The Green Stuff to recipes adds a really nice flavor to whatever you’re cooking and doesn’t overpower the dish. This could also be used in bread and other foods. The possibilities are endless!

organic food has exploded in recent years, but that growth has yet to result in lower prices. Organic food is so expensive, in fact, that many consumers aren’t willing to give it a try, even if it is much healthier. Whole Foods has become one of the most successful grocery stores of all time based on its organic focus, but the prices are so high that the store has faced significant backlash over the past few months and is derisively called “Whole Paycheck”.
Given the narrative surrounding how costly organic food is, you’d think there would be no way to use coupons and save money on it. In reality, that couldn’t be further from the case. Most people are unaware of how many ways there are to get discounts on organic foods. Guest poster Jason from Dealspotr is here to end that knowledge gap! This is going to be even more challenging without using potatoes, pasta, and rice as filler, since we try to mostly stay low-carb. So far, we have found some really good healthy choices at Sam’s Club, and while we end up eating the same things more often, we have saved money and time, because a lot of what we buy from Sam’s is really easy to heat up or throw together! Did you know you can even order your healthy foods at Sam’s Club online and pick them up in the store? Awesome! failed dieter is someone who has tried numerous diets, only to crash and burn or gain all his/her weight back after the diet has ended. However, what if I told you that you could lose weight if you cheat on your diet?
I have been on somewhat of a weight loss plateau for several months now. Nothing I seem to do brings the scale down! I survived the holidays without the scale jumping up, but I can’t seem to get things going back down. It has been so, so frustrating! So last week I all but gave up.
I admitted defeat. Ate horribly. And barely exercised. And I lost almost 5 lbs. This is not the first time this has happened. This also happened to me the time I got stuck for weeks and finally broke down and had nachos and Golden Corral and carby goodness at the Hillbilly Hideaway (where every vegetable comes with at least one stick of butter), and then I started losing weight again! There are actually benefits to cheating on your diet. I am not a dietitian or nutritionist, but in my own experience, here are some of the benefits I have seen!
