New Year's Resolution -- Sneak More Vegetables Into Everyday Meals

Dietitian and Champion Juicer Make It a Veggie-Full Year

PASADENA, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 5, 2015) - New healthy recipes are often rejected by loved ones before the first bite's even tried, making New Year's resolutions challenging. Outsmart resistant eaters with a combination of tasty, fun and even sneaky tricks to make your New Year's resolutions conflict-free.

Melissa Halas-Liang, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, mom, champion of healthy eating, and founder of SuperKidsNutrition.com advocates stealth tactics when it comes to nutritious meal preparation. "Some kids revolt when you offer a meal with a new vegetable," explains Halas-Liang. Certain children are just resistant to the taste of vegetables. Using homogenized vegetables allows them to gain taste exposure, and including them in familiar favorites helps ensure success.

9 out of 10 US kids don't eat enough vegetables, with green vegetable intake being very inadequate and orange falling not far behind. "Those two colors are the easiest to sneak into store bought or home staples like pasta sauces, dips, salsas, guacamoles, and soups -- which are often family favorites," states Halas-Liang.

The powerful benefits of eating diets loaded with fruits and vegetables start with reduced risk of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes and ending with potential for weight loss, lower incidence of stroke, osteoporosis, and kidney stones. "We all want to eat healthier but sometimes the fight to convince our families overwhelms us," states Halas-Liang. "I am always looking for ways to get kids to eat more veggies without a fight. My Champion Juicer is a huge help because it quickly homogenizes vegetables so I can hide them in favorite recipes. This allows kids to gain exposure to the taste of vegetables, without noticing it -- increasing their preference for vegetables over time."

The US-made Champion Juicer is the only juicer that can homogenize, shortening prep time. "Blenders or food processors can also be used, the key is to get the vegetables to a homogeneous pureed consistency so they can be camouflaged by the other ingredients," says Halas-Liang. "My daughter loves salsa that includes homogenized celery and carrots. I sneak veggies into common dishes and family and friends don't even notice know the difference. The simplest way to boost vegetable servings is to homogenize them and add them to favorite dishes."

This year use the Champion Juicer, a blender or food processor to keep them guessing about your healthy New Year's resolution. These tools help you sneak veggies into your diet and turn your New Year from a battlefield into a peaceful, veggie-full year.

About Champion Juicer
The Champion Juicer set the standard for juicers in 1955 when it manufactured its first juicer, using a GE washing machine motor as its engine. Manufactured in the USA by a 3rd generation family owned company, Champion Juicer is known for its performance and durability. Champion Juicer is a favorite among knowledgeable juicers but its homogenizing capability (creating products such as nut butters, frozen fruit sorbets and baby foods) is unmatched.
