Enjoy the shopping trip, I know you'll make good choices!

And thanks for the photo comment! The wind for most of the pics was awful! But sometimes we had that magical moment!

Oh, it's no problem! I hope you enjoy them!

In response to your blog comment: I also have a huge sweet tooth and I honestly believe honey is a cure all for it. I even bought more gummies yesterday and still found them disgusting and fake and processed. I'm definitely sticking with honey. And another thing - I don't think I like chocolate anymore. Maybe it's just the bar that I bought, but I like the idea of it, but not necessarily the taste. I'm shocked.

I get you in being overwhelmed! Something simple and bound to be delicious for you - baked sweet potato fries. Take a sweet potato (skin on or off) and cut into wedges/sticks. Sprinkle with a little bit of oil and cinnamon. Bake at 350F for about 15-20 min. Drizzle with some honey and enjoy! It's a sweet snack or side, but I'm hoping that would help.

For something more exotic: do the same with eggplant (skin on or off, although on is a bit tough. I just keep it on), but use no oil since eggplant absorbs oil. Instead of cinnamon, do salt, pepper, dill, and mint. Same baking time, but eggplant can brown a lot more quickly than sweet potatoes, so you have to watch it. You're bound to get some that are extra crispy and some that are more soft.

I really enjoy cauliflower, so you can cut a head of cauliflower into florets and drizzle with oil, salt, pepper, and any spice combo you want (turmeric and cumin, onion power and garlic powder, dill and mint, Italian seasoning, etc. Go with whatever spice profile you're serving that night) and bake at 350 for about 25-30 min.

Do the same with broccoli, cut into florets, drizzle with lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper. Crushed red pepper is optional, but it adds a good kick.

Zucchini: cut into rounds and drizzle with oil, salt, pepper and any spice profile you want. Bake for about 15 min (depends on how thick you cut them).

You can pretty much roast any veggie and roasting is simple, easy (one pan!) and generally quick. Roasting also tends to bring out the natural sweetness of a veggie.

I hope that helps! Those are all simple, quick, easy veggie side items. Let me know if I'm on the right track!

I have plenty of tips, but I don't know what foods you want to try! What if you give me some foods and I give you some ideas?

I think you should always try new foods, that's one way to get out of your food pickyness. You can try buying a new vegetable each week and see if you like it? But keep in mind that a veggie can taste completely differently based off of the ways you cook it, so if you don't like it, you should try cooking it another way with a different flavor profile.
