WIAW

wiawloveyourveggiesmonthbutton2 WIAW is hosted by Peas & Crayons

This month Jenn has challenged the WIAW’ers to VEG-ify our posts. 
{Talk about our favorite vegetables, share our go-to cooking/prep methods for veggies, talk about how to eat more veggies/fruit, or any other veggie-centric topics we can think of.}

I was sick last week and didn’t post a WIAW, nor did I take any photos of a day of eats.  So, today’s photos are from Thursday February 2nd. 

I definitely eat my fair share of fruit and vegetables, as you can see by my photos.  My favorite vegetable is … ???  I’m not sure I can pick just one.  I really love zucchini, even though I prefer it cooked.  Fresh tomatoes from my garden or the Farmer’s Market in the summer are amazing.  I love to add mushrooms to anything.  Asparagus is super yummy and so is broccoli.  Carrots are tasty and crunchy as well as is celery.  Radishes and cucumbers are always great, especially on salads.  Spinach is tasty and makes a great green smoothie.  Eggplant makes a great addition to a pasta sauce when roasted and pureed.  I could go on and on.  Corn, peas, green beans.  Cauliflower, bell peppers, artichokes, beats, garlic, leeks, lettuces, onions, potatoes.  The only vegetable I’m not fond of is … brussels sprouts.

What is your favorite vegetable?

Your food photos look great! I'm afraid I fall into the bad halt of a food rut and eat the same things over and over. I know that's not exposing me to a variety of nutrients but boy it sure is easy.
I'm so sad that you don't care for Brussels sprouts. I just "discovered" how great they are roasted and I eat them probably three times a week! (see, food rut)
