Leafy greens. I know I need to eat more, and lettuce doesn’t really count. I’m just never excited about them. Growing up we mostly had canned vegetables with rarely frozen, very little fresh stuff, and pretty much never spinach, collards, etc.

So far I’m finding:
Other veg = good
Starches= good
Nuts/seeds/avo= great (too hungry without)
Fruit= woohoo!
Leafy greens = resounding “meh”

I’ve tried in the past with juicing greens but I can tolerate much more and will choke it down for the health and/or not to waste it. At the time I was afraid of using too much fruit to counteract the vegetable taste. I’m not sure a blended green smoothie would go over well, even now. How are YOU getting your greens in?

I have grown to love them. Especially baby Spinach and kale. I either throw them on a rice bowl or make a simple salad before my main meal.

I originally had a problem with green smoothies too. I started adding blueberries to them and it changed the color to purplish which made a world of difference to me.

I have the same problem! I can’t seem to get excited about leafy greens… in addition, as I am still getting used to the huge increase of fiber to my diet, dark leafies give me an upset stomach the next morning.
