I do really enjoy vegetables.  I would say that most of my meals consist of some type of vegetable.  Some of my regular go-to guys are celery, cucumbers, broccoli and cauliflower.  Although I eat others, I think one that I have never really tried is egg plant.  I have found some low carb recipes using eggplant and would like to try it some time.

I LOVE veggies!  Wish they were cheaper!  I could eat cauliflower for days.  Carrots, spinach and green beans are my other favorites!

Ever since I started my journey I have been including vegetables in our meals. My favorite veggie is corn but because it turns to sugar we don't have it often. My next veggie to make is green beans or any raw vegetables like tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, salads and so forth.

I do love veggies.  I usually don't have veggies at breakfast, but every other meal and snack has veggies!  I eat my fruits for breakfast so it is colorful too just sweet.  My favorite veggie sides are roasted green beans, sunshine and trees (brocolli and orange segments sauted with some soy sauce and ginger), and just plain sliced cukes and tomatoes raw and layered!

I can't think of a veggie I haven't tried, but I don't like beets or brussel sprouts.  I keep trying them every time they show up at the local farmer's market, but I haven't found a recipe I enjoy yet.  But I haven't given up!  One day I'll like those little suckers!
