“I found green veg so bland and bor­ing when I boiled or steamed it. Then I started to stir-fry it in co­conut oil and throw in some chilli flakes and cumin. It tastes amaz­ing, it re­tains its crunch and not as many nu­tri­ents leak out. Plus the co­conut oil is a great source of fats that help you ab­sorb all the es­sen­tial nu­tri­ents green veg has to of­fer.”

“The smell of kelp, a type of sea­weed packed with loads of nu­tri­ents, used to make me gag – but then I dis­cov­ered cook­ing it with fresh whole tuna, wrapped in foil, with gar­lic and cracked chilli. I have it with a side of ei­ther sweet po­tato or some mashed parsnips and car­rots. I never thought I’d say this, but it tastes like heaven!”

“I don’t like veg­eta­bles but I know they’re packed with the vi­ta­mins, an­tiox­i­dants and fi­bre I need. I try to eat a lot of as­para­gus and broc­coli for all their health ben­e­fits and make them taste bet­ter by cook­ing them with red pep­pers, for the vi­ta­min C – plus gar­lic. It’s amaz­ing how a lit­tle gar­lic makes any­thing bet­ter!”

Stir-fry green veg in co­conut oil and add some spice, says fit­ness model and per­sonal trainer Olly Fos­ter (ac­tion-re­ac­tion­train­ing.com)

Adding gar­lic to any veg dish makes it tastier, says Sergi Con­stance, a WBFF pro mus­cle model and in­ter­na­tional cover model (ser­gi­con­stance.com)

Cook sea­weed with gar­lic and chilli to make it de­li­cious, says Roger Snipes, a WBFF pro mus­cle model (@RogerSnipes)
