What vitamins are missing if you skip veggies?
So, I hate veggies. I love salads, but I can only bear to eat that once a day for so long... And I'm not a fan of smoothies except every once in awhile. I do enjoy stir fry with veggies but that's only once a week for dinner. I just found that I LOVE winter melon, but there's only so many ways to cook that too lol. I mostly just eat beef a few times a week, whole grains a few times a week, white rice once or twice a week, and lots of fruit and sugar(thanks to my addiction to Yoplait Greek 100, coffee with creamer and cereal/granola lol). I want to get back on track with diet and exercise, but I don't think I have it in me to stick with the diet my nutritionist gave me before I got pregnant... I always felt like I was lacking something and hungry, which is probably because hardly ever eat veggies to help fill me because then I would end up over on my fats and salt due to dressings and marinade/sauces. I'm worried though that I may be missing vital nutrients if I skip veggies almost daily(I usually eat veggies once a day or every other day). Everyone I know says I should just suck it up and either starve or eat foods that make me gag... That's just not acceptable to me. I do stick to my calorie limit that I have set for myself since I am breast feeding, but I often feel hungry but I am too scared to do any more extra calories for fear of gaining back what I've lost.
I could use some insight from those who have more knowledge.
