Same here. Sometimes not much veggie for a few days, on my VLC days. Then just sweet potato, or just stinging nettle or dandelion - but then I'll have my organic frozen veggie blend, too, on other days. Pretty random, and I also feel it evens itself out just fine. Especially since I do not rely on greens for nutrition. Getting plenty of liver and whole animals pretty much has me covered. I eat the greens to keep my skin clear and for variety since I pretty much eat the same ten foods every week....
I used to eat a ton of veggies and fruit, but I'm trying to eat low fiber, so I had to significantly reduce the amount I was eating, which has helped my digestive issues tremendously. So now, it still varies - some days will be very meat/protein heavy with little to no veggies or fruit, other days I'll have 1-2 different veggies with my meal. If I'm feeling like I haven't gotten a good, well-rounded assortment of brightly colored things, I'll toss 3-5 different veggies in the juicer so I don't have to suffer through the fiber.
Cooking vegetables significantly decreases the strain on your digestive system, in addition to making many nutrients bioavailable that aren't in the raw form, and minimizes anti-nutrients or goitrogens in cruciferous veggies.
different amounts of veg at different days- which mainly depends on lazy i am to prepare the meal
- one of the hardest things for me was the psychological barrier of having enough on the plate.
eg it used to be beefburger in a bun, on a plate, with fries and occasionally another side- eg onion rings, etc etc,
now its beef steaks with broccoli- andf i have to make myself add something so the plate seems- fuller but avoid- sides of non primal food! sounds silly but it took me a while to get used to this as majority of my old side dishes are terrible- eg, rice, chips, pasta,
