I'm rather "new" to Paleo (began on January 1st) BUT I know the foods I love. Every meal, my plate pretty much looks split down the middle: half meat, half veggies. I am afraid that my lack of variety in veggies could potentially cause lack of nutrients. The only veggies that I've eaten the last 3 month are green beans and broccoli (broccoli/cauliflower mix maybe twice a month and baby carrots every once in a while as a snack). I'm not bored with either veggie . . . I love them both and wouldn't mind keeping it exclusive with those guys. I don't like zucchini, cooked carrots, peppers, etc.
Is this a problem?
Well, if you listened to Dr. Wahls you would think you are doomed without a wide variety. Fact is, veggies are totally optional. BUT... that would only work if you are eating nose to tail - organ meats, skin, bone marrow, brains and muscle meat. If you are just eating muscle meat (steak/ground beef/roasts), you may need to look to fruit/veggies/nuts to fill in the nutritional gaps.
You've got the brassicas pretty well covered (cabbage/cauliflower/broccoli). Adding a dark leafy green is a good idea (spinach/kale/collard). Next would be colorful fruit/veg. Carrots are a good start. You don't like red peppers, so how about blueberries, melon, a little sweet potato or pumpkin? Throw in some onion, mushrooms, garlic and some spices and you should be good to go.
I like to make omlettes with some of the above, such as onions and spinach. But if you prefer bone broth and liver, you could probably just get away with that.
Some of the "fun" of going paleo is discovering new foods that you actually like.
Have you tried roasting your veggies? I tend to enjoy them more because they have a sweeter taste and just better in general. I always throw in a variety, especially carrots, onions, red/yellow/green peppers, leeks, tomatoes, pumpkin/squash. Toss with EVOO and fresh herbs, 350 for about 1 hour and I have them ready for any meal.
