Poll: Which veggies did you eat today?

In an effort to encourage or support others- what veggies did you eat today?

I ate: romaine lettuce, spinach, brocolli sprouts, carrots, green onions, red peppers and tomatos in a salad. (4 cups worth!)

also had steamed sweet potato, kohlrabi, and rutabaga mashed with a little bit of salt.

So that's 11 dif veggies, and definitely enough servings for a day!

since when are apples and blueberries and bananas and pears, vegetables?

to the op: is there a reason you picked veggies in particular, rather than fruit and veg?

So far, It's only been 2 slices of pickles. and ketchup if you follow the Gov't standard on veggies. LOL

That's okay, I plan to eat some squash, lettuce, tomatoes & broccoli tonight with dinner!

OP- cuz veggies are usually better for people with candida- fruit is great, but some people have to limit fruit ingestion for health reasons- usually temporarily. Plus I like fruit- it's easy for me to eat it... not so easy to find ways to eat veggies. (that day I'd had a fruit salad with strawberries, rasperries, banana, and grapes- I was out of watermelon...)

steamed sweet potato is much mushier/"soggier" than regular pototoes. Part of why I add the kohlrabi- kohlrabi doesn't mash like potato no matter how long you cook it. I was also out of turnip that day- I usually mash the sp, rutabaga, and kohlrabi with turnip.

veggies: spinach, romaine lettuce, red pepper, mushrooms, tomato, cucumber, carrots, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower, olives, onion, corn, eggplant, pea pods

fruit: apples, pears, oranges, kiwi... cheap to buy in bulk frozen berries and mango

kohlrabi isn't bitter. I find the texture to be kinda a cross between watermelon and potato- it's starchy, but less dense than a potato. Kinda a mild, only slightly woody taste. Def milder than turnip. Also is great shredded on a salad.

My lunch had broccoli sprouts, spinach and romaine- about 4 1/3 cups worth... still deciding what I'm going to eat for dinner...

I'm sure that this doesn't count.

French fried potatoes.

personally, french fries count about as much as ketchup does. Now, they *might* count a little more if made from scratch- but if they didn't come from a pototo you had to cut yourself, I wouldn't count that as a veggie serving...
