All comments welcome!
Just clarifying - 4 cups total for the day.
I use some in an omelette at breakfast (peppers, zucchini, mushrooms) and some for afternoon snack (red peppers and dukes or pickles usually).
Love cucumber salad - slice super thin. I add thin sliced onion and red pepper. The use apple cider vinegar and sweetener for a sweet/sour cold salad. (Sometimes I add a touch of sesame oil and soy for an Asian flavor.)
Spinach cooks down to just a couple bites. I top mine with vinegar or lemon and some of my salt.
Have you tried rhubarb? It is a veggie but WAY more like a fruit. Looks like red/pink celery. Cut into chunks and cook in a pot with a little water, sweetener, cinnamon or nutmeg until soft and mushy. Some add gelatin and let it cool for a jelloish treat. I like to top I t with ProtiDiet oatmeal (unrestricted) and make a crisp. You can also buy it frozen when not in season. Great dessert or breakfast!
And of course you MUST have read about how AMAZING roasted veggies are - they are mentioned in just about every thread!!!
