I ate a WHOLE head of lettuce and I liked it.

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

I was never the "salad" type girl - Heck, I was never the vegetable eating type gal at all! I would try to eat MAYBE 2 cups of spinach, drenched in dressing once in a blue moon. but overall, I hated salad.

soo, what changed? I became vegan.

I was the vegan that hated all vegetables in the beginning, but that is slowly changing. My taste buds are changing on me everyday!

The other day, for some odd reason I wanted red leaf lettuce. I never had that kind of lettuce before but I wanted it anyways. -and I ate the whole darn thing, WITHOUT DRESSING! I really cant believe I actually liked it too!

Now, I'm eating a whole head of lettuce everyday - and I'm enjoying it!

I've been exploring different vegetables every week. and I'm getting more and more excited to try new things now

these are all the vegetables I've been enjoying lately.
*Red leaf lettuce

-hey, liking 4 vegetables is better than none!

anyways, Just had to share! Tell me, what vegetables are your favorite?

    Congrats! Being vegan is amazing isn't it?! It's hard to chose just a few favorites but I would have to go with zucchini, cauliflower and beets right now. They are in season so maybe that's a cheat.. Have you had vegan cauliflower 'n cheese? It's a healthy version of mac n cheese. Sounds crazy to subtract the pasta but it's so satisfying and you get to eat more veggies! Mmm emoticon

    I love asparagus...drizzle it with olive oil, put some pepper on it and stick it in the oven at 350 for 10 minutes...DELISH!

    I love 'nearly' all the veggies. I think that if you taste something you don't like, cook it or serve it differently next time because that makes a difference.
Lately I have been buying the pre-cut spring-mix salad. The one I am absolutely in love with has all sorts of leafy veggies and herbs. Funnily enough I am not a fan of romaine lettuce, so I like to mix it with other leafy veggies, tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, capers, avocado etc etc.. Whatever I have in my fridge. Besides the pre-cut is so convenient for me to open, toss and eat!

    I'm trying to work up to a whole pound of lettuce as a salad. Or a whole pound of mixed raw vegetables; lettuce, cukes etc. So far I have only made it to 3/4 pound. But, I have made it to a pound of 'raw' in one meal when you count my raw fruit (dessert).

I do my lettuce in a blender with lemon juice and pepper, and eat the other stuff in their whole state. If I ate everything raw all I would be doing is sitting eating.
