Calories today are 1,150 well below my 1,700 goal. I have been below goal every day since 12/30/2013 I credit Volumetrics for this success because I am never hungry with the large low calorie dense meals that I eat.

I have been studying the book "The Ultimate Volumetrics Diet" and I read a suggestion to try new and unusual vegetables. That appealed to me so I made up my own "Bucket List" of vegetables that I either do not, or seldom use when cooking at home. My plan is to look for these in the market and search new recipes to try them in. Doing this will really increase the variety in my menus.

Bok Choy
Leek
Parsnips
Rutabagas
Artichokes
Belgian Endive
Chives
Fava Beans
Mustard Greens
Radicchio
Ramps
Sorrel
Swiss Chard
Watercress
Black Salsify
Chayote Squash
Delicata Squash
Diakon Radish
Jerusalem Artichoke
Kohlrabi
Turnips
Yucca Root
Galangal Root
Celeriac (Celery Root)
Broccolini
