sindurella - you're just gonna have to try it and see what happens to you. when i started back on veggies, things like cucumber, tomatoes, zucchini worked very well. other veggies had to be cooked to the OTHER side of crunchy [not my favorite]. salad wasn't easy at first, but eventually, it worked out. after about, oh, 6 months, one of my FAVORITE lunches was some deli chicken, shredded carrot, chopped cuke, chopped tomato all rolled up in a nice big romaine leaf. with a little blue cheese.
spinach is tough for me - baby leaves work better, and if they're mixed into a regular salad, i'm usually OK. but cooked spinach is usually a challenge for some reason.
just keep trying different things. if something causes problems, try it again in a week or so - it's a daily adventure!
Start your day with a smile, and get it over with.
Keeping it off is a hundred decisions a day that help you maintain what you achieved. And that's the hard part. - L Sanders
