Bags of frozen veggies.

Maybe you’re all gaga over veggies but also maybe you’re like “this is haaaaarrrrrd.” We get it!

But we also know that there are all sorts of wonderful little sneaks out there to up your plant game without it feeling like a chore, or changing the whole recipe, and sometimes without even noticing (oh hi, piles of spinach in your smoothies).

Grillables, pizzas, pastas and everything in between, here are some secrets to get more veg without just eating a pile of veg, ya know?

Tip #1: Lettuce Wraps Anyone?
