vegetables and a non-hater

Thursday, July 14, 2016

Just a quickie here.

I want to say that I don't hate vegetables. I guess right now I am bored with them.
Salads wear me out. I am interested in Gazpacho, as my last post indicated.
I have been to the store twice since then and neglected to get the needed ingredients to make a batch.

My sis came by last night. They are going on vacation and she wanted to give me the bag of veggies from her CSA. Now I have some strange veggies in my fridge.
I need the motivation to prepare these. Salad Turnips? Another thing she had. Medium sized sort of purplish-green leaves. I asked what those are. She looked and studied and said "leaves". Hah What! I said they sort of look like Basil. We smelled them. They aren't Basil. I have them but I don't know what I will do with them.


How does one measure a cup of fresh greens and does it matter since they mostly have like 15 calories per cup.

Corn is not a veggie, it is a grain.
As well as peas and what else? Winter squash, potatoes, sweet potatoes, etc.
Oh and Donuts...Donuts are not a Veggie!

So what is the problem?
I am just bored with veggies and I need to find ways that excite me about them again!

I read this page and it has me thinking about what I can change up for a while to eat some different things.


Be Well My Friends,
For The Love Of Health!

    Living in the USVI, it was hard to find decent tomatoes - so I learned to use some fruit as well as the usual salad stuff. So maybe try chopping an apple into a salad, add some raisins and walnuts, along with the greens, carrots, cukes, etc. Or orange or grapefruit segments. I've even had salads with kiwi, or peaches, or berries. I've found I really kind of prefer my salads this way - I've never been a big fan of tomatoes anyway.

    Cook the leaves the way you would any type of greens. I'm sure SP has recipes. Turnips can be diced into large chunks and roasted in a 400° (or hotter) oven. Sounds like you have opportunities to branch out with your sister's offerings.

    Try some egg plant from a Chinese restaurant. They usually season it real well and it taste great. I can eat it every day.

    Do you eat soups? I find when I am bored w/veggies, making soups that do have veggies, but other ingredients as well the veggies are less boring.
