I'm curious to know... What are the veggies that are less starchy? Celery?
I love roasted parsnips...the make good french fries!
a few i haven't seen posted:
Roasted brussel sprouts
yellow beets are in season right now.
Swiss Chard sauteed
My personal favourites are red onion, sweet potato, tenderstem broccoli, baby courgette, leeks, spinach, watercress, rocket (rucola), asparagus, garlic, seaweed, samphire.
Avocado is wonderful too but doesn't agree with me so well.
I favour the above veg for their rich micronutrient content and beneficial fibre, not for carbs. For carbs I go for white rice and sweet potato.
F 5 ft 3. HW: 196 lbs. Primal SW (May 2011): 182 lbs (42% BF)... W June '12: 160 lbs (29% BF) (UK size 12, US size 8). GW: ~24% BF - have ditched the scales til I fit into a pair of UK size 10 bootcut jeans. Currently aligning towards 'The Perfect Health Diet' having swapped some fat for potatoes.
my husband & i did the math & i dont remember exactly, but i've eaten about 320 pounds of cauliflower in the last year & a half ha. weird...
i eat it everyday & never get bored with it bc theres so many ways to cook it. i'm surprised more people havent mentioned it.
Thanks for all of the wonderful vegetable ideas, and I've had fun looking up the ones I've not heard before. I hadn't realized that this forum had such an international member base - as it turns out I did know what the veggies were, just not by that name

Yucca sounds like it could be interesting, but I don't think I will find it in Indianapolis, at least not without paying a high premium for it

Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.
