Well, I know there's a thread like this somewhere... but instead of searching, Im starting my own! lol
Anyways, I've been calorie counting & trying to eat healthier with those fewer calories. Im doing good with lean meats & whole grains- and I love fruit... but those dreaded veggies!!
The funny thing is I've been afraid of them my whole life, when I finally started giving them a chance this last year, I actually like them! I just have NO idea how to eat them or cook them- which is why Im here
Just for a starting point- here are somethings that are edible to me/ the only veggies I know how to cook..
- Broccoli/edamame in the bags that you just pop in the microwave to steam
- I love yellow squash & I know how to steam that on the stove..
- I love soft carrots (hate raw carrots! & celery for that matter
) but have no idea how to cook them besides in a roast which would def not be healthy if I ate that all the time lol
- Sweet potatoes- I love em cut in half & put face down on tin foil in the oven for an hour! So soft & all the sweetness comes out & gets crispy mmm
Well thats about it! Any suggestions would be much appreciated! Im off for 4 days a week so most of those are do-able; but I do need some quick ideas for when Im doing my 13 hours shifts the other 3 days a week.
Thank you all!!!
