Vegetable recipes. - May 25th 2016, 07:53 AM

I've been eating really unhealthy lately due to a lot of things. I've gained some weight and would like to start eating more fruits and veggies.

I just don't have a lot of recipes for those things.

Fruits I have no problem eating plain and then of course carrots with hummus are good. But, other then that my recipe skills are bad.

I love mushrooms and zucchini. I mean, I'm not overly picky but don't like raw tomatoes (can eat them as sauce or Stewed or salsa) and I don't like cucumbers.

Not sure if that helps but I really want to try and get healthier and lose some weight without resorting to unhealthy means.

Yellow peppers (the sweet one) is really good plain, so you can probably eat a whole piece of yellow pepper with very little calories consumed.

Another thing I like is red pepper with some sort of low-fat dip.

You could probably find a fruit or veggie platter at your grocery store, but they will most likely come with raw cherry tomato. I hate those too, I rather have them cooked, stewed, or in the form of a sauce or soup.

Glad I'm not the only one who feels that way about tomatoes.

Thanks for the suggestion. I used to eat peppers with lemon, salt and chili powder but then I stopped. This has reminded me of that so I'll wrote it down.

Make zoodles instead of pasta!
Make salads! Pick favorite vegetables, a protein (meat, hard boiled eggs, beans, seeds) and a dressing (all the ranch...or other dressing )
Vegetable smoothies! Here is a great resource for recipes, but when in doubt, do a half frozen banana, a cup of a leafy vegetable (spinach works great), other favorite fruits, and a milk of your choice. Use more frozen banana or ice if you want it chunkier/colder.
Stir fry veggies! Put some vegetable oil down, put in your favorite fresh and frozen veggies (usually for me it's onions, garlic, a jalapeno, two fresh bell peppers, frozen snap peas, frozen broccoli-use whatever floats your boat!), add a protein (for me, I do some eggs), season with some yummy spices or sauces like teriyaki or peanut sauce or just some soy, and woohoo!
