Getting more veggies into your diet is a good idea for everyone. The key is figuring out which ones fit into your lifestyle and method of cooking. Over at Summer Tomato, author and neuroscientist Darya Rose suggests which vegetables are ideal for the laziest of home cooks.
Granted, most veggies don't have to be a hassle at all, but Darya notes that there are some that are just easier to prepare than others, have more preparation options, and can be found fresh at virtually any time of the year. In no particular order, she notes:
- Tuscan Kale
- Delicata squash
- Baby spinach
This isn't an exhaustive list of easy-prep veggies by any stretch of the imagination, so don't think they're the only ones. If you're riding the kale train, Tuscan kale takes much less time to clean than the curly stuff, and it has flatter leaves, which make them easier to cut and cook. Cabbage is sweet, crunchy, and it can add brightness and sweetness to a dish. Darya even offers up a morning cabbage and egg scramble that will get your day off to a healthy start.
Capsicums are another universal favourite for snacking, salads and stuffing, and they're super-easy to prepare. Hit the link below to read more about each of the entries and how you can incorporate them into your healthy eating plans.
