krmagdc Posted November 10, 2013 Share Posted November 10, 2013 I am on day 4 of my second Whole30. My last one I completed but didn't follow the reintroduction plan and basically just binged as soon as I was done. I'm NOT doing that this time! My issue is that I have not ever liked cooked veggies, or a big variety of veggies at all. I know about trying new things and starting to like different tastes while doing this, etc. I do have some new veggies on my grocery list this week. These are the veggies I normally eat: carrots, cucumber, romaine lettuce, red leaf lettuce, spinach, red/orange/yellow bell peppers, radishes, sweet potatoes/yams, cauliflower, broccoli (but I don't really like it). I only eat those raw, except for the sweet potatoes/yams. Does it matter, nutritionally speaking, if I eat those raw vegetables three meals a day? It definitely gets boring, salads take me a long time to eat, and raw carrots with my breakfast just aren't always appetizing. I think another issue is that I like all my meals on the plain side, with not a lot of mixing. So where other people are eating curries and stews I'm eating roasted chicken with raw carrots/cucumber/peppers and half of an avocado on the side. And it ends up being a LOT of veggies on the side that take a long time to eat, versus a meal where the protein is mixed with some veggies and then you can just have a smaller serving of veggies on the side, if that makes sense. New things I am planning on trying are zucchini, butternut squash, mushrooms (in egg muffins for breakfast?), and from what I've read here jicama might be a good one too. Any other good starter veggies? I don't know what my question really is but any thoughts are welcome! I also need some guidance on fats and meats (I only like chicken/fish but am trying to branch out!) but will save that for another time. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
