Helpful and Budget Friendly Tips for Sneaking in the Veggies
First and foremost, if you are not buying fresh buy frozen instead of canned. You will cut out tons of sodium and preservatives.
Buy Frozen veggies, veggie blends and fruit in bulk at wholesale stores like Sams or Costco.

Zucchini and yellow squash can be diced or even grated for the pickiest of eaters. There is not a lot of flavor but there are tons of vitamins in these two veggies. You can grate it and sneak it into any pasta dish, turkey loafs and turkey burgers.
Color is key to a well balanced diet. Venture out and instead of always choosing the green bell pepper, try red, yellow or orange.
Experiment in your protein shakes with mango, watermelon, honeydew, etc.
I add frozen spinach to almost everything, even if my recipes do not have it posted as an ingredient. Anytime I can put it in a casserole or on our home made wheat pizza, I grab a handful, defrost it and throw it in.
