  • Some Days, I don't want no veggies

    Today was one of those days. Anybody else ever have this happen? I don't sweat it, since it's unusual. Just kind of interesting.

      I don't really buy or cook my own food, and a lot of days vegetables just don't happen, except in the form of potatoes or green beans. I know I need more vegetables, but I've never been a huge veggie lover. I don't dislike vegetables, but wouldn't say I'm at all enthusiastic about them. I'm worried though because it seems like I should be eating a mountain of them every day for a few reasons. I'd be interested in learning about acidity/alkalinity in the body from Mark.

        When I first started, ALL I wanted to eat was meat. I had to choke down the veggies. Now I go through phases - lots of veggies for a while, then lots of meat for a while. I figure it all averages out in the end

          Now that I am not addicted to carbs, i trust what my body wants. Yes, some days that's lots of veggies, some days not. Same for meat, dairy, fruit, everything.

            I generally only experience this lack of desire for carbs like maybe Monday - Sunday on a given week. The rest of the time, though, hey - pile me up a big old salad!

              I can't think of a time where I didn't want to eat vegetables. However, there are occasionally days where I don't want to eat meat (well, the meat we buy. I just get tired of beef/pork/chicken. I'd love some fish, or shrimp, or something).

                  Avocado is a fruit.


                  I'm not big on salads, but I love a big pile of roasted veggies! But taking the time to make them is another story, so it's not so much whether I crave them, but whether I feel like making them.

                    Usually adding bacon fat fixes that issue for me.

                      First post here but I've been following MDA for quite some time!

                      I have a particular aversion to many green leafy veggies as they just taste bitter and a fair number of them give me immediate and extreme gastronomical distress. I feel bad about this because I know they are supposed to be good for me but as another poster pointed out, many HG cultures had/have very little access to this type of veggies.

                      I really enjoy some other veggies (carrots, celery, onions, peppers, garlic, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, green squash, brussels sprouts, asparagus, etc...) and find that if they are prepared well I often prefer them to meat. When my wife and I go to an Indian buffet I always head for the vegetarian section first while she heads for the meat section!

                      Lately I've been fixing the primal stew that was featured recently and I find that while I really love the tender stew meat, it's the veggies that keep me coming back to it. I'm going to try the chicken and shrimp soup next as it looks quite tasty.

                      Unfortunately, I have very limited cooking skills and my normal diet consists of fast-food and processed junk. The result is that I've been obese my entire adult life but now I'm learning some cooking skills and gradually changing over to eating almost all of my meals from my own cupboards.

                        Yes. I have the same thing happen to me off and on. I don't sweat it.
