Green Veggies I Like

Thursday, February 27, 2014

It's pretty simple. There's a strong correlation between how many green veggies I'm eating and how well I feel and how much I weigh. And I really like green vegetables so it should be easy to eat a lot of them, right? Wrong. Somehow it seems I find myself in these phases where -- for weeks at a time -- the veggies just drop out of my diet, generally replaced by simple carbs. Then when I realize it and go to make adjustments in my diet, I'm momentarily befuddled: what do I eat? Well, hopefully this list will help me to remember that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE:

Broccoli and cauliflower
Cabbage
Kale
Brussels Sprouts
Arugula
Romaine

Edited to Add:

Asparagus!
Peas!
Spinach!
Chard!

I've been eating broccoli like it's going out of style. Roasted with garlic oil until a bit crispy and tossed with salt and pepper. OMG, I had a big bowl of it for dinner last night and it rocked my whole universe. So, note to self: SELF -- you love your green vegetables! Eat freely of them and prosper!!!
