    For me, it's just a matter of economical value. Chard is awesome, but I can get 2-3x as much kale for the same price as the amount of one bunch of chard. Likewise for collard greens. Chard is a very occasional veggie for me.
    Are you a college student, trying to navigate college while being Primal? Do you know any other PB college students on a tight budget? Heck, for that matter, are YOU trying to live Primal on a budget? Enroll at Primal University!

    Brussels sprouts
    cauliflower
    broccoli/broccoli rabe
    fennel bulb (so good in salads and in fish dishes, raw or cooked)
    lacinato kale
    swiss chard
    sweet potatoes/ Okinawan yams (easy to find at Asian markets)
    asparagus
    spinach
    haricot verts (the skinny french green beans)

    bonus veggie: celeriac root. I love making creamy soup out of it.
    I also love all winter squashes and parsnips.

    In no particular order, we eat the most of these vegetables:

    Broccoli
    Onion
    Garlic
    Brussels Spouts
    Spinach
    Carrots
    Cauliflower
    Sweet potatoes
    Mushrooms
    Lettuce of varying kinds (romaine and iceberg are our most common, probably).

    But for interest, I also LOVE hearts of palm. I've never checked what nutritional value they have, but I love eating them out of a can cold. I've heard they're good on salad, and I've used them as a noodle sub for homemade macaroni and cheese and it was delish!

    What the hell is a TRUE vegetable you ask?

    Broccoli, Cauliflower, Onion, Garlic, Carrot, Asparagus, Sauerkraut, Artichoke, Seaweed, etc.

    Bell Peppers, Tomatoes, Cucumber, Zucchini, Squash, Avocado, Olives are NOT veggies since they have a SEED.

    I can't wait to discover more veggies!
    The term "vegetable" is a traditionnal culinary term, not a scientific term. It is basically defined as any eatible part of a plant other than the fruit how non-sweet fruits like the olive, zuchini and cucumber have been traditionnally been considered vegetables.
