For The Love of Cabbage
However, the diet I'm on is pretty strict and veggies have become an important factor in every meal. In fact, I look at them like they are a free food. When I'm only allowed to eat 500 calories a day, a big helping of veggies goes a long way. I eat salad, without salad dressing, and I love it. That's a big change for me. I used to smother my salads in Ranch dressing and think that I was making the smart choice because I ate a salad. Now I think if I were to eat a salad with Ranch that it would be weird. Cauliflower is another one of my new loves. It's so versatile, you can cook it so many different ways. I've found some great recipes on Pinterest that use cauliflower as a mashed potato substitute. Either raw or cooked, it's amazing. I have to say though, my new favorite veggie is cooked cabbage. It's so tasty! I'm used to eating it raw when we made fish tacos but eating it cooked is a whole different experience. There are so many ways to cook it too! Add a little seasoning and I can't get enough of it.
I've found that veggies have a whole different taste now that I'm not stuffing myself with fat and sugar all the time. When phase 3 comes in a few days, we get to have a different variety of veggies, right now we're kind of limited. I'm looking forward to seeing what other veggies I fall in love with.
