Sneaking in veggies?

I need more creative ways of sneaking veggies into the family meals. I've been sneaking them into spagetti sauce and meat loaf. Any other ideas?

If you have a juicer, you could haven 'em secretly drinking the veggies (combined with a juiced fruit of course!)

You can make muffins using carrots and squash.

Maybe get used to serving a salad with dinner and/or lunch. You can also try veggies with a dip for a snack. Carrots, celery and cucumbers are just a few things that everyone can snack on.

You can always sneak squash into homemade mac and cheese!

Any type of soup or sauce is a great opportunity to sneak in some pureed or finely diced veggie.

I sometimes sneak veggies in scrambled eggs and casseroles.

Also, adding veggies to smoothies, perhaps is an option.

And making veggies fun is a good way to get kids to eat up as well....ants on a log, carrots/broccoli/cauliflower and dip...that sort of thing.

Re: Sneaking in veggies?

I used to live in LV and will be heading back there in a couple of years (fam obligations). Haha I guess I'm a fan too ... but of the outskirts, we used to love going to the mines and exploring the desert ... the city, it's a love/hate thing, I love it because it's so, ummmm, interesting (the city's personality, the inhabitants and visitors!) and hate it because of the same.
