  • Need a quick list of vegetables.

    The wife is going shopping tomorrow and she wants a list of food. I have everything so far except for the vegetables. I've got so far:

    Mixed greens
    Spinach
    Asparagus
    Onions
    Tomatoes
    Eggplant
    Carrots
    Avacados
    Peppers
    Green Beans


    What else should I tell her to get? Are peas primal? I know no potatoes (I'm low carb), corn, and beans.

    Cauliflower!

    That is all.

      Broccoli and cauliflower! Cauliflower mash is a great substitute for mashed potatoes... still hearty, buttery, and delicious
      Brussels sprouts are amazingly nutritious, and delicious if you roast or saute them.

          Duh I forgot brocolli and cauliflower. Those two and the brussel sprouts should round out the list.

              By pepper I suppose you mean capsicum - just remember the red have the most nutrients.

                jalapeno, habanero, hatch chilies; broccoli, kale, mustard greens, broccolini if you can get it, berries if you want something sweetish, celery, green onions, ginger...
                Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                    For quickie meals, get a bag of cole-slaw (already cut up cabbage and carrot mix) and a bag of broccoli slaw.

                          I eat yellow/white onion all the time. My food would be boring w/out it

                            peas, as a legume aren't primal.

                            I loooooove kale, collards, occasional beets (not lc), beet greens, broccoli and eat them all just about daily.

                            Also love cucumber, tomato, avocado salad sprinkled with dulse (specific type of seaweed).

                            Best,
