    Who said vegetables are healthy

    You can eat potatoes and still die.

    What’s key is a balanced diet

    Look up recipes that will make them taste better. I like grilled peaches with sour cream, cinnamon and honey. Or apples with a mixture of Greek yogurt, pb2, monk fruit sweetener and lilly’s chocolate chips. Brussels are great roasted. Cherry tomatoes taste completely different roasted with balsamic and olive oil. Things like that.

    Ya ^ agree it’s just a matter of seasoning. Try chopping it up and marinading it. You can grille them, throw any seasoning on them. There’s so many options.

    Yes seasoning is great but can also add extra calories, depending what seasoning you use. People make a mistake of thinking! I'm going to eat healthy im eating more vegetables, more fruit and salad then unwittingly add sauces, dressings ect, not realising that they are adding unesesarry calories. It takes time to accually taste food property. For example I used to hear how peas or carrots taste sweet and I thought Really? but it wasn't untill I cut out artificial sugers that I understood. So vegetables an so called boring plain foods take on a whole more meaning. It's been a journey. Give it a try for a while. You'll taste your food so differently.

    +1 suggestion to find a new way to prepare a vegetable that you don't think you like. Most vegetables are excellent roasted in the oven with a little bit of oil, salt and pepper, maybe some other seasonings if you want to fancy it up a bit or make it "go" with whatever else you're making (my go-tos are paprika and garlic powder, usually; sometimes Chinese five spice or cumin, depending). Broccoli, asparagus, and brussels sprouts love this treatment. Measure the oil you use, but don't worry too much about the other seasonings; most herbs and spices are effectively calorie-free because you're using maybe a few teaspoons at a time, you'd have to eat a truly ludicrous amount for it to really make a difference for you. A tablespoon of oil (15g) is plenty to coat a good half-pound of vegetable; I do it shake-and-bake style, put the veg into a bowl, then the oil and seasoning, cover and shake it up, then dump that all out onto a prepared baking sheet.

    For vegetables I like to use spices to change it up sometimes. Vegetables are also delicious roasted in the oven. If you don't like vegetables maybe you could put some in smoothies or try juicing so you can get all the good nutrients? Don't give up, it's too easy to give up. Don't eat food you don't enjoy either..

    Light Ranch Dressing, and hummus are my 2 go-tos to doctor up veggies. Often I'll have baby carrots, hummus and clementines for my dinner.
    I love roasted veggies as well.
    My sister and her dd made a smoothie using a whole bag of fresh spinach and my sister said you'd never know it was in there. Lots of veggies you can incorporate into soups, casseroles, wraps and disguise them if you don't like the taste of plain vegetables.
    Lots of fruits freeze well and make great slushies/smoothies/ice cream.

    Another vote for roasting veg, or sautéing it. You don't need to use a tonne of oil either. Try different combinations and recipes, you'd be surprised what you can do. If you have extra calories to use up then mozzarella makes everything better!
