25 Sneaky Ways To Trick Yourself Into Eating More Vegetables (Photos)

Pinch Of Yum/Skinny Taste

Like most kids, I wasn't a huge fan of vegetables growing up.

I can't tell you how many nights I was held prisoner at the dinner table until I finally managed to force-feed myself a few pieces of broccoli.

Don't get me wrong, I know veggies are one of the healthiest things you can eat but a lot of them look like alien lifeforms and, quite frankly, taste like ass.

Seriously, it's 2015, why hasn't someone invented lettuce that tastes like pizza yet?

If you find the thought of adding some green into your diet depressing, I have some good news for you.

There are actually tons of ways to eat more vegetables that don't suck.

All it takes is a few clever tricks, like swapping out your carbs for cauliflower, concealing some spinach in your smoothie, stashing some squash in a burrito bowl or burying some black beans in your brownies.

So we set out to find a bunch mouthwatering recipes that sneak some green onto your plate without making you gag.
