If you struggle to consume the recommended two to three cups of vegetables every day, you’re not alone. A study performed last year by the CDC revealed only 9% of Americans consume the minimum daily vegetable recommendation.
Vegetables are full of nutrients, and incorporating them into your diet doesn’t have to be boring. At Magimix, we are dedicated to making healthy eating fun and easy. Here are a few ways to make eating veggies more enjoyable!
The Spiral Expert attachment for the Magimix Food Processor makes it easy to create various types of spirals out of vegetables like zucchini, carrots, potatoes and more. The attachment set comes with three cones that allow you to make spaghetti, tagliatelle and fusilli shaped spirals.
“Zoodles,” or zucchini noodles, have become a popular vegan alternative to pasta. But don’t just stop at zucchini! Try spiralizing sweet potatoes, squash or carrots for a fun variation on vegetable noodles.
Juicing is another fun way to shake up your veggie routine. The Magimix Food Processor can be used with a Juice Extractor Attachment that makes it easy to juice all your favorite fruits and vegetables. When you juice produce, the resulting liquid contains most of its vitamins, minerals and nutrients, which can be a beneficial alternative to eating the whole fruit or vegetable.
If you don’t want to lose out on the valuable fiber in the pulp, try adding it to baked goods like muffins, or toss it into the broth of a soup!
