    Default Vegetable Choices - SOME GREAT ANSWERS!

    HOPING THIS WILL HELP THE GROUP -- I do have some recipes I could also add somewhere, but not sure how to do it. I DID ADD SOME GOOD RECIPES to the Recipe Group....

    These are the wonderful ideas that came from some long-time group members. Splendid ideas.

    JANNYAZ – Acorn Squash: I eat acorn squash. I cut it in half then bake or microwave it. While it's cooking I mix together the juice of half an orange, a teaspoon of Stevia brown sugar and 1/2 TB of butter and warm it up to pour onto the cooked squash. Quite tasty and relatively guilt free.

    JERZEYGIRL -Spaghetti Squash: I love spaghetti squash, baked with little pepper and olive oil; take out the strands and put sauce and/or meat sauce.

    Acorn Squash: Acorn squash is great cooked in the oven, dig out the squash inners, and then stuff w/chicken sausage, cranberries (lower sugar), toasted nuts and then some cheese to melt while you're rebaking it. I love Janny's recipe for the acorn squash.

    One Meal Vegies: I tend to like the one meal veggie ideas, fiber, and protein all in one.

    Misc Good Vegetables: I also like cucumbers w/some yogurt dip, roasted veggies including fennel, carrots, broccoli, and sometimes asparagus tossed w/little olive oil and seasonings, placed on cookie sheet w/parchment paper and roasted until brown and little crispy; sometimes if I'm feeling daring, I add a little grated cheese and let that crisp up.

    KATRINA: Squash: I've been on a squash kick big time. Roasted butternut squash with a little olive oil and salt and pepper, butternut squash soup, roasted and salted squash seeds, squash casserole. Give me all the squash!

    KIWIGAL: I find some veges easier than others to eat. Hints to Help:

    Cauliflower is better than broccoli. Green beans are fine. Cabbage is great. It's getting into Summer here so my favourite asparagus is in season. I eat loads of that...well, when I say loads, I can usually manage about 3 spears after eating my protein. I try to snack on veg during the day to up my intake as I know I am not getting enough either. I have carrot and celery sticks for morning tea. I use a vege peeler to take off the stringy bits of the celery as my stomach doesn't like them anymore. I have cucumber and tomatoes with my lunch.
    Zucchini are good, leeks are ok. I like pumpkin but try not to have this too much as it is high carb like potatoes and Kumara (NZ's version of sweet potato - only better :-)).
    Frozen veg in Winter is just as good as fresh as the nutrients are locked in with the blast freezing. I always add lots to any casseroles or stews/soups that I make.
