Sure, juice bars and smoothies bars are great, but why not make your own, especially when you can use all the leftover vegetables and fruits you buy to make other healthy recipes? Plus, juicing is a great way to sneakily add vegetables to your child's diet. Cucumbers and carrots are generally great vegetables to add to a smoothie as a base, and if your child (or you) don't like those vegetables, you can "cover up" the taste with fruits that you do enjoy, like strawberries or blueberries.
If you prefer to eat your produce rather than drink it, then fire up the grill! You can grill virtually anything, veggies included! Plus, shish kabobs are a great way to get children involved in the cooking process, and they'll love putting the colorful veggies on the skewers. You can also add veggies to grilled cheese sandwiches, omelettes, and more. Fresh veggies are very nutritious and important to one's diet, and even if you're a picky adult when it comes to veggies, there are thousands of ways to cook different veggies and mix up your meal routine. Check out our Pinterest boards for many more specific recipe ideas and inspiration, especially for those summer cookouts! Currently, we have zucchini, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, blueberries, cherry tomatoes, and onions, and will be getting in more produce soon.
