    Cool. How do you prepare them? If you overcook them, they just taste bland and mushy. Have you tried cooking them just enough so that they are cooked but not mushy, maybe just slightly crunchy? They also look more appetizing if they have a slight sear mark on them.

    I also do a lot of steamed veggies because it's super quick and easy, and very healthy.

    And almost anything tastes good with melted butter, and a bit of black pepper and sea salt sprinkled on top.

    I also like raw veggies dipped in a good ranch dressing (broccoli, carrots, red/ orange/ yellow bell pepper, snap peas...). Hidden Valley Ranch is my fav ranch dressing.

    I'm not much on cooking, so what 'good' foods do you all generally keep in stock?
    I'm currently in another food-transitioning process, so I need things that I can take with me on-the-go, or munch on in between classes. My biggest issue is being hungry after being somewhere for a while, and just stopping to get something that ends up being a bad choice.

    Luckily I've weened myself back onto water

    I've tried them every which way.

    haha, I love almost all green (or otherwise) veggies and those still sound nasty to me. I'd way rather have veggies in a delicious salad or gently sauteed rather than drinking green goop.

    I guess I would try it once if they were offered to me, but no way I'm ruining my own veggies by turning them into goop. Plus I suspect you'd lose a lot if not most of the fibre.

    You're so late on the green juice party, Random!

    Mmhmm and RedCheerio *blend* their smoothies with high powered high fanagled high price tag deluxe mixers by Vitamix. No cellulose is lost in the 'leftover' bin of a juicer. The blender chops everything right up.

    Tonight I made super fast black bean and sweet potato burritos, since I was wiped out and didn't want to cook much (although the prep took long enough to be annoying)

    -cooked a sweet potato in the microwave (poke some holes and throw it in until it's soft inside, about 5 min)
    -mashed it up, mixed with a can of black beans
    -added the remains of my jar of prechopped garlic (yes I am lazy, how did you guess?), maybe 1/2 to 1 tsp
    -dumped in some cumin and a bit of chili powder (I don't like it too spicy)
    -stirred well, microwaved 2 min, stirred/mashed up a little to mix together the flavours a bit
    -use as burrito base for whatever toppings you like!
    -today i'm using: salsa, sour cream, cheddar cheese, chopped fresh mushrooms and sliced red onions (both lightly cooked in microwave). and lettuce of course!


    I guess it's relatively healthy other than the sour cream and cheese (but ). And delicious, unless you have something against sweet potatoes. And really, who would?
