Default Only vege is salad

Pretty much, the only veges I eat is salad containing mixed greens, spinach, tomatos and cukes. I do eat spinach in my eggs and tomatos in other stuff, but that's pretty much it. Do you think that's a problem? I just don't like other veges - I've tried to force myself to eat them but I just can't. I will occasionally eat some peppers, asparagus, collard greens, or make the roasted vege recipe in the book, but not very often. My husband hates everything but salad too. Am I going to get scurvy or something if I don't vary the types of veges I eat? I have a huge salad at least once a day, usually twice.

I can understand the problem with the veggies. I am not particularly fond of them, either. However, I try to dress them up a bit with OP foods. I add veggies to my cheese omeletts and cheese to the top of a dish of veggies and generally eat them where I can, but I know that I don't eat enough.

If that is still a concern, make sure that you are taking vitamins to compensate. I take a bunch in the morning - including a multi vitamin, Vitamin E, Vitamin B6, Calcium, Folic Acid, and Vitamin C. The only problem that I have had with my blood tests is a defficiency in iron (a long standing problem for me), so I am also on an iron supplement, that I wouldn't recommend unless the dr. tells you.
Never be afraid to try something new.

How about veggie soup? That's so easy, and one of my faves. I boil a bag of lentils, with a little olive oil, and then put the lentils, more water and a big bag of frozen mixed veggies, plus whatever I have in the fridge, all in my crockpot and lots of seasonings, and let it go for a few hours. I think it tastes good, my roomie liked it too. The lentils make it kind of thick, and it is hearty. IMHO. =P

Soup is a great idea! Remember that 8 ounces of V8 counts as two veggie servings! I sometimes use it as a basis for veggie soup.
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?

Yeah, I do make soup and stews, but I make them more in the winter than I do when the weather is warm. But I have to revamp my soups and stews cause traditionally they contain alot of potatos, corn and peas. And I always use v8 or tomato juice as my soup stock.

Wendy, you can take vitamins, and they will help, but there is some question as to how much we can absorb from pills. If you can only eat salad, I would vary some of the things you put in it.

Also, try making some salads from veggies...like the 3 bean salad with green beans. Check out the recipes in the forum here...there are a lot of variations. You never know you won't like something unless you really try it. There are so many different veggies with all different textures and tastes, I bet you can find some you will like. For instance, I hate lima beans, brussels' sprouts, and cauliflower (in general). But I have found that I actually like broccoli and asparagus. It took trying them a lot of different ways before I could get to like them. You know?

I wish you luck!
