Macros in Vegetables
When I very first started tracking my food years ago, I always found macro cheat sheets super helpful – which is why I guess I love making them!
If you pay attention to the fiber numbers, you’ll notice that most vegetables aren’t insanely high in fiber – sans brussel sprouts, acorn squash, + peas
So it’s a little deceiving as yes, we want to eat veggies at every meal – but you could be crushing a decent amount of veggies and still falling short on fiber goals (most people feel best around ~25-35g daily)
Try including foods like berries, lentils, beans, high-fiber oatmeal, high-fiber breads, etc in addition to your veggies (:
You can make insanely tasty vegetables simply by tossing them in some olive oil or coconut oil and then roasting in the oven @ 400 for 10-20 min until brightly colored // fork tender
My cooking days are behind me, so I tend to just buy the plain steamable veggie medleys. Make sure to undercook them slightly so the veggies don’t get squishy (ie: if it says to cook 5-6 min, I’m only nuking for 3-4 min)
Make sure to top with copious amounts of spices: garlic powder, onion powder, pink salt, everything but the bagel…
