All the rest of ya too!
OK, here's the skinny. I freakin hate veggies. I know my body needs them, so I gag them down. I hate it. It ruins my meals knowing I have to choke down those damn nasty things that grow in the ground. I need ideas.
Here's some guidelines.
I don't like salad. It tastes like dirt. Lima beans should be stricken from the face of the earth. Okra is only OK if it's fried. I like corn and peas are OK. Ya, you know, the stuff they fatten pigs on!! I put onions in everything as it's a veg. I need to get the rainbow in.
The less I have to eat to count as a serving, the better. Last night I got the bright idea to take 1 cup of baby organic spinach and saute it in 1 teaspoon of olive oil (needed the oil or I'd have done it in water) and garlic. Reduced that nasty stuff down to about a tablespoon! Yay me! I had a lean cuisine lasagna (Yes I counted the tomato sauce as a veg too!) and just spread that over the top. Couldn't really taste it. Yay! A new idea. I figure if that never occurred to me over the last 50 years, there have to be other ways to disguise veggies out there too. I'm hoping all my blogging friends may have some ideas.
Things I do now:
I grate zucchini in my spaghetti sauce and other things as you just can't taste it.
Ya, that's about it!
You all know I've been struggling. A 5.8 pound gain this week and a 1.8 pound gain last week tells the tale. It's due to the stress of planning. I had just had enough. It's so hard to plan a meal you know you're not going to like. I do like my groceries!
I can eat veggie soup. I think I need to make a pot of that. Still, I can't eat veggie soup every day for lunch and dinner to get veg in. There have to be other ways.
