What can I eat instead of vegetables?
Asked by erinsturdivan on Jan 04, 2010 in Nutrition



I don't like any raw or frozen veggies - really.  What else can I try to eat?


Answer

If you don’t like vegetables, you can drink vegetable juice or eat fruit.  Until recently, “Fruit-and-Vegetables” was a single food group because they are botanically similar and they provide most of the same nutrients.  At 1200 calories, if you don’t eat vegetables, you’ll need 5 servings from the Fruit Group everyday.  But are you really certain that you don’t like any vegetables?  Consider spaghetti sauce, baked potatoes, vegetables in soups, red bell peppers and portabella mushrooms on the grill, and sweet potato fries.  Just keep trying until you find some you like - and, in the meantime, take a daily multi-vitamin/mineral supplement and eat high fiber breakfast cereals.
