Thursday Thirteen--Vegetables



This past Monday, my hubby and I had an InBody Assessment done. Hubby's work has afflilation with the local YMCA so one of the trainers came into hubby's work to do the assessment in one of the conference rooms. The assessment was just a simple taking of shoes and socks off and hanging on to the device and waiting for the results. The results being our weight, skeletal muscle mass, body fat mass, water content, BMI, percentage of fat to muscle, and muscle strength. Basically we found out how much weight/fat we need to lose in order to be in good health. We also found out how many calories we burn just resting to help us know how many calories we need to consume in order to lose the extra weight.

And what does this have do with anything??? Well I thought for my Thursday Thirteen list, I would list the vegetables that I enjoy eating. Hopefully listing them will help to inspire me to eat them on a more regular basis, EVEN if my family despises them! (My family is full of picky eaters!)

So without further ado....My list of vegetables that I enjoy consuming(in no particular order!)...


  1. Broccoli

  2. Spinach(cooked & fresh)

  3. Lettuce

  4. Carrots

  5. Cucumbers(despite the fact they give me heartburn!)

  6. Squash(zucchini, summer, and butternut are my favorites!)

  7. Asparagus

  8. Green Beans

  9. Corn(especially fresh off the cob!)

  10. Green Peas

  11. Okra(not the most healthy as I like it fried in bacon grease!)

  12. Tomatoes(I know they are actually a fruit--but I see them as a veggie!)

  13. Potatoes


While I will eat the listed vegetables there are others(like brussel sprouts & rhubarb) that I will not eat! And just in case if you are wondering...I have tried my "dislike veggies" before several different ways and just didn't acquire a liking to them.

If I listed ALL the fruits AND vegetables that I like to eat, I don't even think I could come up with 13, let alone my top 13 favorites. I'm so NOT a veggie eater. Give me some bread and milk and I'll be a happy girl.

I can't believe you came up with 13 favorite vegetables. I can think of about 5 that I really enjoy. That is great for you though.
