    Unhappy I can't eat vegetables

    Hello everyone,
    My diet is really terrible,I even wonder how I survived trough all this time!
    Everything is said in the title, I really can't eat vegetables (except for potatoes) and that's mainly due to their texture.The only way I can possibly eat them is to make a soup...
    So if you guys could give me advice about ways to cook delicious yet healthy vegetables,that would be really helpful.

    Hi,

    Why not try Juicing them.
    I think you get more nutritional value that way and you can find some interesting recipes online,

    Re: I can't eat vegetables

    So eat soup! What about stews and pasta sauces? Puree the vegetables, if that's the only way you can get them down. Since there is a wide variety of texture in vegetables, experiment with the ones you find least objectionable. Eat them regularly and they will become more tolerable, then you can expand your selection gradually. The texture of a raw snap pea is nothing like the texture of sauteed spinach. I bet you've never tried either. You may simply find that being more adventurous with vegetables solves the problem pretty easily. Do you have a friend who is a good cook who can help you get started?

    "Juicing" is fine, if it that means grinding the whole vegetable up, but not good, if you are discarding the fibrous pulp.

    Re: I can't eat vegetables

    Try veggies that are similar to the ones you like. For instance, like mashed potatoes? Try mashed cauliflower. It tastes the almost same and has the same consistency. Do you eat salads? Add some veggies - broccoli, asparagus, peas, spinach, etc. Like sweet potatoes? Try acorn squash. You won't be able to tell the difference. Like radishes? Did oyu know you can sautee them! Great cooked in some butter with garlic and salt. Lots of options.

    Re: I can't eat vegetables

    juicing them like in making a cold juice ?
    Oh and about snap pea,those I eat the moroccan way and it's delicious ^^ But when it comes to all other ideas,just thinking of those vegetables makes me gag...
    I'll try mashed veggies and mask their taste with looots of spices.
    Thank you guys for the answers

    V8 juice? Very healthy! Just tastes like a little spicy tomato juice.
