Vegetables substitute

I am not a vegetable fan. I have a hard time eating vegetables. Is there any suggestions out there to help me?

There was a recent thread with a huge list of veggies listed - even a few you probably like and don't even think of!

Maybe you don't like eating them straight and raw. Try adding a them to a stir fry with rice and a lean protein.

Maybe you can chop them up smaller so they aren't in huge bites. I learned to love tomatoes by eating fresh-made salsa with tiny cubes of them and lots of fresh cilantro. Add some nacho chips and it's like you aren't even eating a vegetable.

Hiding them in other foods works as well.

I am making Chili today, In it, I've added some "hidden" veggies:

fresh pureed carrots (you would never know it's there!)
roasted frozen corn (from Trader Joe's) --I know, it's technically a starch / grain...
Red, yellow & green peppers (frozen strips)
Black beans
Tomatoes
Jalapenos
pureed Shallots
pureed Garlic
along with my own spice mixture

When eating it, I add some Fage 0% yogurt (or other non-fat plain yogurt--Nancy's is a good brand)
A LITTLE grated cheese
Chopped black olives
Fresh cilantro
Fresh chopped tomatoes (optional)


See?? lots of added veggies! (I make this either with or without meat. :-)

I understand your predicament!! I have never before eaten so many vegetables as I have in the last few years.

Try new ones. You may not have tried some of the rarer ones. Personally, I prefer most of my veggies raw, or "in food"- not as a side dish. Grate things like kohlrabi, turnip, rutabga, broccoli stalks, carrot, even peppers, and put in a lettuce salada or even a pasta salad. Little pieces aren't as strong tasting, and can help adjust your taste buds.

Otherwise, soups, stews and casseroles are my way to go. I have yet to discover a way I like sweet potatoes, unless they are cooked in beef stew. To my stews, I usually add parsnips, carrots, turnip, rutabaga and sweet potatoes (yes, I know, high carb, but I don't do low carb, I do "the right carbs") Recently found a recipe for artichoke and aparagus soup. Never tried either veggie before, but the soup was wonderful. Blenders can be a great help- I puree the hell out of peppers, onions, and other things to add to sauces, meatloafs, casseroles, soups- much easier to eat, and the flavour is fantastic.

Sweet potatoes are great cold
Bake them for an hour or so, till a paring knife is easy to poke them

put in frige and peel and eat.

they are really sweet, and smooth, if you like bannanas you will love the cold sweet potatoes, same texture

I hate most veggies too, especially bitter green things, but I've started eating them as a pureed soup and think of it as a 50-calorie cup of vitamins/medicine to keep myself healthy. A small mug = 2 servings, and if that's all I have, well, I'm doing way better than I have since my Gerber days :)

How about in omelettes? Would you really dislike a spinach+ mushroom+feta or a green pepper+onion+cheddar omelette? And what about having chopped romaine lettuce where you would usually have rice?
I can't say I empathise, as I absolutely love veggies, but my problem with them is that they take time to prepare. But that just takes practice.

With the Super Bowl and Sochi Olympics rapidly approaching, gangsters are seeing dollar signs Wholesale Jerseys 2016 .Sophisticated crime rings are developing pop-up e-marketplaces and sourcing cheap apparel from abroad, readying to profit millions of dollars selling counterfeit goods to unsuspecting deal hunters Stitched NFL Patch.More than $17 million worth of Super Bowl 2013 merchandise -- from fake jerseys, hats and jackets to tickets and other souvenirs -- was seized last year, according to U.S. Immigration and Customers Enforcement.

While the NFL has forced the shutdown of more than 2,500 websites offering counterfeit team merchandise
  • Movie Football
  • , the federal government arrested a dozen people ahead of this year's Super Bowl and the Sochi Organizing Committee pledged to implement a more effective response to the theft of licensed Olympic gear
  • Winnipeg Blue Bombers Jersey
  • , the hill is steep.Without further consumer awareness, defeat is like a large-scale game of whack-a-mole, said David Sugden, an attorney specializing in grey markets at Call & Jensen.“Whenever there’s demand for anything --whether it is sports memorabilia or airplane parts -- you’re going to find there’s an effort from dishonest entrepreneurs to sell dishonest products,” he said.Brands may succeed in shutting down one
  • Atlanta Falcons Jersey
  • , but two more are always waiting in the wings.Traditional crime rings are attracted to the ease of importing apparel over, say, drugs and narcotics, and can quickly develop a website for the sale of illicit merchandise
  • Baltimore ravens Jersey
  • . The sites can also be written in such a way that the actual ring leaders are difficult to prosecute.

    And it's extremely lucrative
  • Indianapolis Colts Jersey
  • . Despite the fact that some of these counterfeited products are indeed far superior to their legitimate counterparts, thieves oftentimes price them in the same ballpark so as to maintain the ruse that the products being purchased are real
  • Buffalo Bills Jersey
  • .“It allows you to maintain the margins of legitimate goods, making it an extremely attractive business with a very low barrier to entry,” said Fred Feldman, chief marketing officer of brand protection firm MarkMonitor
  • Chicago Bears Jersey
  • , which works with the NFL.It’s also easier to fool a shopper online, whereas consumers tend to be more cautious of a random man selling t-shirts out of the back of his truck in the rear of the stadium parking lot.

    “Prior to Internet commerce
  • Cincinnati Bengals Jersey
  • , counterfeiters were often outside of stadiums or in flea markets or just on city streets,” said Sugden. “That kind of environment suggests to a reasonable consumer that this stuff probably is not authentic.”

    Of course, some shoppers looking for
  • Cleveland Browns Jersey
  • a deal are willing to sacrifice the quality. In fact, a MarkMonitor survey from 2012 found that these deal hunters are 20 times more likely to buy counterfeit than regular consumers.

    “Consumers have become more price sensitive and understand that one of the powers of the Internet is to compare and contrast prices to find the best deal NFL ,” Feldman said.

    With millions of revenue on the line, that has become a nightmare for brand owners.
