    I've eaten raw cauliflower and cabbage for a while, but wanted to try broccoli. Didn't mind the crown or leaves, but the stalk was vile. Then I realised: I usually eat cabbage or cauliflower stalk COATED in some form of home-made dressing. Tried that, it worked.

    Raw broccoli is a great dip delivery device.

    Yep! And celery too.

    Those are the two veggie winners in the dip wars.

    Read post #2626
    my motivation

    As per Marcadav:
    Do 30-60 days clean primal.
    No grains, sugar, alcohol.
    Eat 3 meals and primal snacks.
    Don't track food.
    Don't tweak.
    Don't expect issues to go away quickly. Instead, just follow the plan and see how things play out.
    Decide on an exercise plan you can/will do consistently during the 30-60 days and then do it.

    Here's an easy trick. When I'm noticing that I'm getting lax on eating greens, I start tossing them into anything I make that has tomato sauce (curries also are strong enough to mask them). I use frozen greens and will put in about 3 weighed oz per portion. Spinach and collards seem to be mild enough as to pretty much disappear (tastewise) in the sauce.

    Also in "patties." Fish (flaked) + mashed potato + egg + greens = patty. Chill so they don't melt in the pan. "Fry" in healthy fat or oil.

    I wouldn't get rid of my raw cabbage for ANYTHING. Coleslaw ftw. Paleo mayo, add some walnuts, shredded carrot... Mmm!
    But, seriously, healthy thyroid, healthy everything.

    Indeed! I like the florets on their own, but stalk NEEDS a dip/sauce of sorts. Fussy that way.

    And even if you don't like them, there's all kinds of ways to make them palatable. My favorite is to chop up all kinds of things, fry some bacon, onion, garlic and tomato and then pitch all the veggies in. Cover it to keep in the steam, add spices and herbs and voila! Delicious veggies.

    I throw greens into all sorts of dishes. Curries, chili, tomato sauces, primal "lasagna" (using zucchini instead of noodles)...so many opportunities.

    Vegetable chips are tasty too. I make them out of all kinds of root veggies.
