Yes, I like veggies!

I usually make a veggie with dinner, and they must be tried. Period. 

I give things to eat them with, for the kids, if needed. So, carrots, cauliflower, and broccoli all get to be eaten with dressing or dip. I prefer to eat them that way too. 

Corn isn't a veggie, but it's still something we eat often.

I put peas into noodle dishes that I make, like casseroles.

I plan on making green bean casserole soon :)

What are my favs? Peas. I LOVE peas... Peas with brown rice, and oven baked chicken in herb and garlic or lemon pepper marinade. Yum!

What will I eat today? Who knows. I'll decide that at dinner time, lol

Do you like veggies? I absolutely LOVE veggies!

What are your favorite veggies/ veggie dishes? I love salads and stir fry meals. I like bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, and celery the most.

How do you get your family to eat vegtables? I add them to meat dishes and I make a lot of salads.

What veggies will you be eating today? Lettuce, tomato, onion, potatoes, celery, and carrots.

I love veggies! All kinds really depending on how they're cooked. Everyone in the house has their favorite, but we can all pretty much agree on broccoli and green beans :o)

Do you like veggies? LOVE them!!!

What are your favorite veggies/ veggie dishes? Umm...all of them?? LOL I love spinach, tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, peppers, cucumbers, squash, broccoli, cauliflower.. the only thing I loathe is celery to be honest...and rutabagas..

How do you get your family to eat vegtables? I make them all the time, but my children fight me constantly. The only thing that don't fight me over is my meatloaf. I make turkey meatloaf loaded with spinach, mushrooms, carrots, onions, garlic, and sometimes I put zucchini in it as well.. I also top it with sliced tomatoes. They love it! 

What veggies will you be eating today? Salad for lunch- red cabbage, romaine, iceberg, carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers and for dinner, I will probably make mashed cauliflower, zucchini with onions, carrots and broccoli and I will probably eat some veggies with hummus for a snack later..mmmm

I love veggies!

My favorite is probably broccoli.  I mix it into a lot of dinners, but we also love sweet potatoes, spinach, and chard.  I make a lot of dark greens at home because they are more nutritious.

I really didn't have to try to get my family to eat them, I just offer offer offer and eventually they eat.  :)

What veggies will you be eating today? i think I'm going to make an egg veggie scramble so probably tomatos and mushrooms. We'll eat some for lunch and dinner too. I'm not sure what yet, but we'll see.

I love veggies. My favorites are the ones that come frozen in steamer bags with a sauce. They are quick And easy. I either eat them as a side dish or mix it with whole wheat pasta for a meal.

I love veggies! There are very few tht I don't like. And i am very fortunate that my kids love them as much as me! I love salads, I love zucchini, broccoli, asparagus, green beans, corn...I could go on and on. I will probably be having a salad for lunch, and I'm not sure about dinner yet.
