I must try this
I grew up on canned veggies. I volunteered for a organic veggie garden, & fell in love with them. Yep! I love them organic & plain. ! I love & eat ALLOT is blanched broccoli & the insides of 1 tangerine on top. Sprinkle with a little cayenne pepper. I will scramble egg whites for protein & serve on the side. YUMMO!!!!
Grew up with - along time ago! :-) - parents who had a garden so learned early on to eat a variety of vegetables and fruits. And still love them with a few exceptions, and have tried new ones over the years that I love.
Love-Love-my vegetables! They are the mainstay of my daily menu. Can't
imagine life without them!
I love vegetables
Got two (2) servings of broccoli in my bag for lunch & afternoon snacks.
make a tahini dressing to put on.
Some vegetables I only like them raw.
When I was young, my grandfather was a truck farmer and my folks often had a garden so I was exposed to many vegetables as a child. But everything was cooked until it often didn't resemble the original produce - for instance, green beans flavored with bacon or fat back. Now that I have learned that there are better ways to prepare and eat vegetables, I enjoy them so much more. No more soggy, discolored vegies for me.
Roasting or grilling makes a world of difference in many veggies: cauliflower, cabbage, brussels sprouts, peppers. Kale & collards I can do in a green smoothie but cooked, nope. If you think you don't like some vegetable, try a completely different cooking method.
