Hi, I add veggies to everything. Raw diced peppers or spinach or frozen peas to Annie's mac and Cheese or other pasta. We top veggie burgers with sauteed mushrooms, spinach or avocado. Carrots, steamed broccoli etc as stuff to dip in hummus. I buy the already washed organic spinach in a bag as it is so easy to add at the last minute to everything like soups, curries, scrambled eggs or just throw in a pan with garlic and oil. Another thing I try to do is cook up many of the veggies the day I shop so that they are easy to throw in stuff or munch on cold. I lightly steam the broccoli or kale and keep in containers and add it to everything I make. We make wraps for lunch and add it. Grilled veggies are good too! If I do them I do a ton and add them to stuff all week. Salads with interesting things in them are fun too- nuts, avocado, corn, black beans, "taco salad", feta cheese, canned artichokes.
Fruit smoothies are a good way to get in extra fruit. Also mashing a banana in plain oatmeal is a great sweetner or topping oatmeal with other fruit.
Hope this gived you some new ideas.
