How To Get Your Veggies In

How To Get Your Veggies In

August 30, 2019 4 By William Morgan


hi everybody it’s Denise back with Keto
with Denise and today I’ve got a treat
for you I get so many questions about
how in the world can I get in seven to
ten cups of veggies a day because
remember that’s what I say a lot that we
need to get in our veggies for the
micronutrients you need that for your
minerals so you don’t want to skimp that
when you’re doing healthy keto that’s
one of the key components of following
this journey is to make sure you get
your veggies in so today I’m gonna show
you a quick way to drink your veggies I
know I get tired of chilling salad
sometimes so I’ve switched it up and I
use this recipe I’m about to share with
you to make sure I get in some good
veggies so we’re gonna start with it’s
my spinach blueberry smoothie and you’re
going to love it I get so many people
telling me how they love this smoothie
and I hope you will too as a matter of
fact I want you to when you try it just
make a comment on this video and let me
know how you liked it okay so let me
tell you what the ingredients are first
I’ve got two cups of spinach now I like
to do three cups because again I’m after
that 7 to 10 cups of veggies so I have
an extra cup because I plan to drink
this when I’m done so 2 cups of spinach
I have 1/4 cup of blueberries now I will
do a couple of extra blueberries in it
just because I like that flavor you
don’t have to but if you want to throw a
little bit in just remember now you’re
getting in a few carbs when you’re doing
blueberries but it’s still good I have
one scoop of protein powder this is a
plant base this is all I use this plant
base and I recommend you do the same all
the other types have different things in
them that we don’t want to put in our
bodies so this is a plant-based protein
powder I’ve got one tablespoon of MCT
oil you can use avvocato oil coconut oil
you could use olive oil if you want to
as well both all of those work I like
the MCT oil because it is flavorless and
that’s really important because if you
use coconut oil it’s going to change the
flavor
I didn’t like it I tried it but I just
didn’t like it so I stick to MCT oil
because there is no taste with that I’ve
got a cut 1 and 1/4 cup of almond milk
this is unsweetened original flavor
almond milk I know there’s a lot of
almond milks out there lots of cars lots
of sugar in some of them but this is
unsweetened and organic everything I try
to use is organic grass-fed etc and a
little bit of ice because I want that
extra smoothie taste so we’re just gonna
put everything together now let me say
this if you want to take a little bit
more fat than what you’re going to get
from the MCT oil a little secret for you
add a little bit of heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream will go
a long way and getting in some great fat
because I use this as a meal replacement
too if I’m not hungry in the evenings
and I haven’t gotten in all of my
veggies this is a great go to or in the
mornings if you’re starting out and
you’re doing your three meals a day this
is a good meal with some great fat you
will not get hungry if you’re going to
add a little bit of extra fat that’s the
heavy whipping cream option or an
avocado this is a great option and it
gives it a smoother flavor even or taste
when you’re using the avocado so those
are a couple of things you can do people
have asked me do I have to use
blueberries no you don’t you can use
other berries you can use raspberries I
have someone who swears by the fact that
the raspberries are the bomb and using
this recipe and some used strawberries
and some have used blackberries so mix
it up try it for yourself and see how
you like it
how are you ready I’m just gonna take
handfuls of these and remember this is 2
cups of spinach I’ve went 3 because
remember I’m drinking this when I’m done
so I’m gonna do it the way that I do it
but in the recipe it’ll say two cups of
spinach so you want to follow along with
that that’s ok too
ok so let’s do that I’m just going to
pour my almond milk in there get that
out of the way all I’m doing is just
taking everything that I told you we
have in terms of recipes and I like to
move stuff
out of my way when I’m in the kitchen so
let’s put that in there put the I like
to use all my protein and this protein
that I’m using just check your protein
remember it is plant-based I get about
15 grams of protein so you don’t want to
do too much protein we’ve talked about
that in other videos so just make sure
you’re following your macro targets for
the day as you are using this and then
I’m just gonna pump it in there you see
how simple it is you’ve got a home
blender that you can use I like to keep
the lid on things so I’m just going to
go ahead and tell it I’ve got it plugged
in and I’m going to set it on the option
that I want
I’m gonna pause right here because you
can determine how liquidy you want your
smoothie some people like them really
really thick and like my sister she
likes some super thick I don’t I like it
a little thinned out so I’m gonna go a
couple of more seconds not gonna try to
talk over the noise but I may make some
gestures about this because this is so
good
let’s try it again
now simple as that didn’t take me five
minutes I just grabbed all of my recipe
all my ingredients put them aside I’ll
go ahead and take that off take the lid
off and let’s get ready to enjoy so
remember you’re getting in two cups of
veggies and if you’re like me you got
three cups right there with just the
spinach and of course it’ll make a
little bit more than your my 16-ounce
glass and guess what I’m gonna drink
this when I go off camera because I
don’t waste anything but I just want you
to see the consistency of it again you
can make it as thick as you want but
Cheers
that is really good now one thing I did
forget to tell you this is almond milk
vanilla so it already has a nice vanilla
flavor to it but if you really want to
take this up a notch add a dash of
vanilla I think I put that in the recipe
sometimes I use it sometimes I don’t
it’s only half a teaspoon by the way and
it you know doesn’t change it too much
but it really does make it you know
taste like that that extra smoothie
flavor so I’m gonna go ahead and end it
here go ahead if you haven’t already
