Question of the day.

Hi people! 🙂

What are your favourite vegetables?

My answer:

Just like with fruits, I am lucky to like most vegetables, as long as they’re raw. I say I’m lucky because if I didn’t, I probably would eat junk food all the time and would be badly overweight, because I don’t feel the pressure to eat stuff I don’t like just because it’s healthy. I like peppers (but especially red pepper, and chilli if that counts as a proper vegetable), nearly all legumes that I’ve ever had, except for fava beans, (don’t have to be raw), garlic, onion (also doesn’t have to be raw), cauliflower and broccoli (I’ve only had them cooked but they’re the best al dente and with lots of “sand”, as my Mum calls it, that is bread crumbs, pickled cauliflower is also very interesting and cool and one of few vegetables I truly like to eat pickled), lettuce, cherry tomatoes (“normal” tomatoes are okay but not like my favourites), horse raddish, kohlrabi, carrot (cooked is disgusting though), cabbage, fresh and pickled, parsley, chive (are these even vegetables, or herbs?), cellery (I love cellery sticks in a spicy yoghurt dip) and can’t think of anything else at the moment.

How about you? Are you a vegetable eater at all or not really? 🙂

  1. Just like I’m not a big fruit fan, I’m not a big vegetable fan. Becoming vegetarian would definitely be a problem. I tend to like legumes, though, and chick peas are probably my favourite.

  2. I’m so envious of your love affair with vegetables! I wish I liked them well enough to snack on them during the day. I can’t think of any veggies I like well enough to do that. I do like some cooked ones for dinner, when I’m inclined to cook: corn on the cob (or off it)–hold the butter–gross; green beans, sauteed veggies like butternut squash or sweet potato (not a veggie, but let’s roll with it), with the butternut squash, I’ll add celery and bell peppers, but I think the extra virgin olive oil it’s cooked in, while healthy, adds major calories and fat; I hate cooked carrots due to their texture but I can eat them raw, but I’m not a huge fan. This eliminates every single premade soup on the market. They all have carrots.

    I’m glad you asked this question. I need to try to lose weight again. I’ve been eating pure carbs. I’m going to start by listing every healthy or semi-healthy food I like!!

    1. That sounds like a great idea to start with. And I hope you can find more healthy or semi-healthy things that you like and don’t know about them yet. There’s so much food around, after all, there sure must be something that will be both healthy and yummy.
