Coach Nicole's latest blog is a great reminder of all things great and wonderful about our veggies! www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal.
As I posted on her blog: I have shunned veggies all my life, but since getting serious about my health have tried, with some success, to build an appreciation for veggies. My preferences are still a bit narrow, so I have room for improvement...thx for the tips...hopefully I'll be chowing on even MORE veggies soon!
I got to thinking...perhaps we can share our favorite ways to enjoy our veggies and enlighten each other on new ways to boost our veggie intake?
My favorite veggies are raw: red peppers, baby spinach and baby carrots. I will sometimes add to the mix brocolli & cauliflower. I call baby spinach my new "potato chip" and will rip into a bag and chow down when I have the munchies.
Another way I enjoy my veggies is to cut 'em up blanche / parboil them and marinate in Italian dressing while chilling. Yum!
A third favorite of mine is to toast low carb flatbread as it becomes crunchy...then break it up into pieces and use as a replacement for taco / corn chips for scooping up salsa...yum!
Post away your favorite veggies folks!
