I'm aware there are some similar threads out there, but I was just curious what your guy's favorite (weird/exotic/uncommon but obtainable) vegetables are? Interesting leafy green suggestions especially welcome.
After all, there are way fewer kinds of meat than types of vegetables and it seems like vegetable variety is a great way to introduce more variety into what you eat.
My usual vegetable consumption tends to include:
-avocado (love--literally sometimes just eat one whole)
-spaghetti squash (awesome!!!!)
usually when I'm leaving my local and awesome korean green grocer they ask me if I'm shopping for a family as I have so many vegetables. I usually just blush and say yes.
thats pretty much it. Most of my meals, for convenience sake, tend to basically be some kind of salad for lunch topped off with roast meats from the night before. At night, unless I have more time/am feeling adventurous/not fasting I'll typically eat an omelette, throw together a stir fry or make some kind of grilled/roasted/slow-cooked meat.
-in terms of antioxidants and stuff what are the 'powerhouses' here? I'm aware that nothing beats a diverse, colorful diet of plant matter, but any special suggestions here are welcome
-this is obviously different for everyone, but what is your typical plant:meat ratio? I've been eating a TON of meat recently and was wondering if this ratio is especially important.
-THIS ONE IS IMPORTANT: how long after purchase do you eat your vegetables? I've read/heard that their nutritional value starts to decline after a few days. Is this true?
