I have been steaming my vegetables, but I REALLY do not like the taste. I literally gag when I try to eat them. Here is my question:

Is there anything I can do to the veggies to give them a better flavour?

Can  you eat them raw?  I like carrots better that way.  I’ve read many people use plain greek yogurt and mix it with one of those Hidden Valley ranch packets to make a dip.  I THINK the packet is high in sodium, so you MIGHT want to drink some extra water to flush the sodium ot of your system.  Also, can you puree a small amount of them and add them to a fruit smoothie (I think recipes are on the recipe thread, or you can make your own).  You probably wont be able to taste the veges, and if you make a smoothie with Greek yogurt, fruit, and truvia (recommended, as opposed to other sweeteners), you’ll be getting your probiotic AND veges in.  Just some thoughts.

Thanks for the ideas!

I’ve been baking carrots with chicken and I find them much better… at least I don’t gag on them! lol

I have never heard of Greek yogourt before, but I will definitely look for it when I go shopping. Thanks for sharing your ideas! :D

Try roasting your vegtables. Roasted cauliflower, sweet onions, sweet potatoes (cycle 2), are good.

Roasted red and green peppers are awesome too, on the grill.  Remember the spices and all to give them flavor.
