I like asparagus. I think it is the coolest veggie. It is also fun to grow and harvest.
Great in alot of dishes. Yes ASPARAGUS RULES!
Spinach is good too.
We should eat all our veggies.

I like fresh spinach in salads and sandwiches instead of lettuce. I like broccoli and cabbage. Both are in the cruciferous family. I loath tomatoes and potatoes.

thin sliced jicama is good in sandwiches too, gives a good crunch.

Ppineapple, I think this is a great topic. This is what this is for, off topic. No need to explain, any more than the "who would you date" people need to explain the reason for the topic. BTW, I still vote for broccoli!!!! LOL

No, I was curious why the topic was vegetables, as opposed to, say, your favorite dessert or song or something else. The 'who would you date' guy explained where he got the idea for his question.

Asparagus, of the ones on this list, but best of all are MUSHROOMS. I eat them almost every day in some kind of way.

Carrots are good for you unless you have diverticulitis in which case you are on a soft food diet for the most part. Nothing hard and crunchy is allowed.

No human should eat lettuce. The human digestive tract is not set up to process the cellulose in lettuce.

I hate beets unless they are made into the horseradish sauce that goes on gefilte fish.

I like asparagus if it is cooked very tender in a light butter sauce.

I love raw fresh spinach in a salad but I'm not crazy about slimey cooked spinach.

Well, since I'm unpopular and weird, I used to eat radishes because they were from my garden in the gazebo. Ppineapple told me to stop eating radishes because I get hyper and have gotten a few stomach aches from radishes. Well now I have switched to lettuce and carrots. I would rather eat carrots and lettuce combined than eating another radish ever. I'm putting radish on trial till I get notified when it is totally safe to eat for me. And when is that going to be good, after flying houses and a new flower appears and someone names in Margaretta Simmon!!! Who is with me?

You know... now that I think about it... a few old boyfriends of mine did turn out to be rather vegetable-like, sometimes of the couch potato variety.

A radish is a round, red, and inside it's white. When you bite into it some say they're hot! I would advice you not to attempt eating them. I think they were made more for women because they are more into round, red, hot items.lol. It might kill the image of being cool. lol

Oh, a radish is a red vegetable like beets. Well, it's similar to beets. I like radishes before I got hyper. Now I'm sad I have to switch to another vegetable *sniff*.

Hey Jade, I ate a round thing before with white "stuff" in the middle. It was good. It's not called a radish though. Its called a Chocolate Covered Cherry. And its not red, its chocolately. And it's not a vegetable, its a fruit, so it's still healthy. So you guys should all give up on these lame vegetables and eat a chocolate covered cherry.

French Fries are a vegetable, so they are healthy. And big macs have lettuce. So Mc.Donalds is healthy now.

Yes Justine, vegetables are really healthy for you until you deep fry the lettuce, that is just plain nasty putting deep fry on vegetables. That is cruel.

But deep frying lettuce, zucchini, cabbage, and onions are not healthy. It's bad for you.

OMG, I love carrots, both raw and cooked. I love lettuce, cause I eat salad all the time. Beets are hot! I mean, I love them! Especially in salad. Asparagus is great. Spinich is one of my favorites, especially cooked in extra virgin olive oil with a lot of garlic and onions!!!

Carrots, beets, asparagus and spinach with butter, s&p. Many more too, with butter, s&p.
Lettuce is a vegetable? Maybe butterhead lettuce.

I'm with you joanie - I love butter - and did you know it is actually healthier for you than some margerine on the market? Although I'll probably get an argument about that one. It goes with everything - and did you ever notice that when you put margerine on your popcorn, it shrivels up the popcorn? Why? Because margerine has so much water in it (look at the ingrediants - it's almost the first ingredient every time). Butter doesn't. And it tastes 10 times better anyway. The microwave popcorn is so awful, I still cook popcorn the old-fashioned way, popping the seeds, and then salt and butter it. Yumm! (And since popcorn is technically a vegetable - I'm not too off topic lol) And butter may be higher in sat fats, as long as you don't get crazy, anything in moderation . . . . never mind that margerine contains so much garbage in it that studies are saying that margerine should not be given to children because it causes a reduction in iQ's. Here's an article you guys may find interesting: Healthy Butter

But to be contrary, I like Brussel Sprouts

Yummy Brussel sprouts baked in butter and freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Good choice Goofy, but that's just my opinion

btw, anyone else old enough to remember the butter substitute of lard with yellow/orange bubble you had to knead, it was in package like fast-food catsup

The latest news is its better to bake vegetables in fats like butter or coconutfat, stuff with saturated fatty acids because when you use oils like the viirgin olive oils the healthy unsaturated fatty accids change due to heating.If you want to bake at a high temperature with butter, remove the milk constituents by melting the butter slowly put it trough a sieve cloth(than you get Ghee from the Indian cuisine.) If you want to have the healthy fats use the extra virgin oils without heating, warming. Use it in salads or to dip your bread in it, instead of margerines or butter Try it some time, dip you toasted baguette in virgin oliveoils flavoured with garlic, oregano, rosmary or dried tomatoes
No fat at all is also not good for weight loss. Use the the unsat fats for cold stuff. you need it

Hi, guys. Great subject. I say broccoli rules. Steamed, and lightly seasoned with seasalt and pepper. No butter or margarine. And definitely no cheese. Asparagus is my all time fave, but I have to have a steak to go with it.
I also love fresh, crisp carrot sticks and celery sticks.
When I was in the hospital, I was served a bowl of brussel sprouts. I have NEVER liked them, but decided to try them, because I knew I needed the vitamins. They were delicious. I wish I knew how they cooked them, so I could make them at home. Anyone have a good way to cook them? I could use the input. Trying to get and stay healthy.
And, oh...... my favorite "unhealthy" veggie is fried okra. YUM-YUM

Hey em. I love love love brussel sprouts...I usually just cut off the bottoms and then put an x with a knife where I have cut. I then boil them for about 3-4 min and then drain. After that you can put whatever your heart desires on them. for example melt some margarine and then put a tsp of lemon juice in the marg. (Don't use butter when you do this, it tastes a little off ) then drizzle over the brussel sprouts. A trick is to put a couple tsps of sugar in the water It brings out the natural sweetness.
PS I didn't know you could fry Okra....How do you do that?

R u kidding me? Don't use saturated fats for anything if u want to be healthy. I personally don't care. I just love the taste of extra virgin olive oil - only the first cold press - on all my greens. Cooked or raw. Sooo tastly!! And no saturated fat!! Try it! And yes I love to dip a really good piece of fresh Italian bread in flavored extra virgin olive oil. It's the best!!
