Vegetable help

Sunday, February 24, 2013

I am 33 yrs old and finally starting to make myself eat some vegetables! I've always liked carrots but that's about it! We'll just last week I ate asparagus sautéed and liked it and then I made a crab and pea salad and have actually eaten that too. I know I need to start incorporating more veggies in my food but I think more than anything texture Is a big part if my problem. If anyone has any ideas for me please feel free to share! I need ideas to keep me going and motivated... I really want to make this a habit. I don't want to quit on my journey this time around and I know veggies are s big part of what I should be eating to be healthy :)

Have you tried roasting a variety of vegetables it really changes the flavour ...there are many recipes... I'm sure you will find some in Chef Meg's cookbook and you might find these two sites helpful
and hungry both are weight loss friendly Good Luck... emoticon

    I love veggies. I actually prefer them raw - better than chips or other snack foods. The nice thing about veggies is that you can eat them different ways, either raw or cooked. Check out the recipes and videos on SP, there are lots of good ideas how to prepare them. Make it an adventure - try new ones you've never heard of. Maybe make yourself a little chart - for every 10 new veggies you've tried, or for every week you've eaten fruits/veggies 5x a day, you give yourself a little reward. If all else fails, make it an art project; move the healthy foods on your plate to make a picture, then eat it. Works with kids. :-)
