Want to know the number one health tip of all time?
Eat more veggies!
Maybe it seems like the same old lecture from mom. Maybe it’s not very cutting edge. Maybe you just don’t like vegetables very much.
Whatever the reason, this nutrition tip is just completely under-rated. Of the dozens of people I am currently coaching, it’s the number one eating habit that could make the biggest health difference.
Our diet is typically over-processed and under-fibered. Whether you are keto, paleo or vegan. (I once knew a vegetarian who hated vegetables. She lived on processed grains.)
You can make vegetables more sexy by using your favorite spices and herbs. You can sneak them in by using spiralized versions in place of, or in additional to, other noodle/rice dishes. You can drink them in your favorite smoothies.
However you choose to eat vegetables, make them one of your top choices today.

Here’s a photo of me chowing down on one of my favorite winter veggie dishes + the recipe so you can give it a try. Cheers to Vegan Green Curry!
Green Curry Sauce:
1 can full-fat coconut milk
3 small zucchini, ends removed but skin on
4 pitted Medjool dates
1 clove garlic, peeled and deveined
1 small handful cilantro (with stems)
1 small handful basil leaves
Juice of 1-2 limes
2 tbs garlic coconut aminos
1/4 tsp cayenne powder
1/2-1 tsp curry powder
1/4 tsp sea salt (optional)
Blend all curry sauce ingredients until smooth. Set aside.
2 spiralized zucchini, skin on
1 sprialized carrot
1 red bell pepper, julienned
1/4 red onion, finely sliced
1 bag kelp noodles, rinsed
1 tbs coconut oil
In a medium to large size pot, saute the onions, red bell pepper and carrot for a couple of mintues in the coconut oil to soften and release the fragrance.
Add the curry sauce and kelp noodles to the pot, stir and simmer until hot. Lastly, add the zucchini noodles and continue to simmer until the noodles are just warmed. Be careful not to overcook the zucchini noodles or they get mushy.
Separate into 3-4 dishes and top with additional basil. Enjoy this while it’s warm, and save any leftovers! This makes a nice leftover dish. Will keep about 3 days in the fridge.
