“I didn’t know I was eating so few green foods until I came to Noom!” Have you ever heard yourself saying that? Good news: you’re not alone! We hear this often and that’s why we love to provide you with fun and simple ways to pack more green foods into your day.
Stay away from the nasty myth that green meals are bland. Not here! Expect variety and flavor with these fun dishes to implement more greens! Not only that, but we’ve taken some of our classic, comfort food dishes and swapped them with more greens. Don’t worry, taste and deliciousness are not sacrificed! Sometimes it’s all about making a few tweaks to the meals that we love and BOOM, they’re more green!
5 go-to green meals
Zucchini Lasagna (Green bonus: swap ground beef for ground turkey & add more veggies to your sauce than meat!!)
Grilled Vegetable Salad (Green bonus: hold the cheese, for more protein add in chicken!)
Green Frittata (Pro tip: feel free to add in deli turkey for some more lean protein in this meal!)
Spelt and Mushroom Risotto (Green bonus: exchange spelt for brown rice and make it even greener!)
Apricot-Sage Chicken with Carrots (Green bonus: exchange the butter ingredient for a healthier fat such as avocado oil!)
5 snacks that scream green
- Beet hummus (Green bonus: instead of eating with crackers, choose carrots and cucumber)
- Baked kale chips (Green bonus: they’re the color green ;))
- 1/2 cup cottage cheese with 1 cup blueberries
- 1 cup frozen grapes with 1 oz. cheddar cheese
- 1 slice whole grain bread toasted and topped with 2 slices turkey deli meat and 1/4 avocado
Here you have dinner set, Monday through Friday, along with your morning and afternoon snacks! Now, hitting your green percentage will be no problem. Remember, green eating can be enjoyable and simple — that’s what makes Noom sustainable.
