    i love salad veg and roasted veg,
    raw caulifour and carrot with parsley and mayonaise is
    one of my all time favourites, but i cant resist
    veggies roasted in olive oil butter and garlic,
    up until recently
    I'd gone right off garlic, its not the eating it in food I object
    to its what it smells like after

    Read and be wise......
    Uncle Ballistic's Q&A about healthy eating:
    Q: I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true?
    A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it... don't waste them on exercise. Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up
    your heart will not make you live longer; that's like saying you can extend the life of your car by driving it faster. Want to live longer? Take a nap.
    Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?
    A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat? Hay and corn. And what are these? Vegetables. So a steak is nothing more
    than an efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system. Need grain? Eat chicken. Beef is also a good source of field grass (green leafy
    vegetable). And a pork chop can give you 100% of your recommended daily allowance of vegetable slop.
    Q: Is beer or wine bad for me?
    A: Look, it goes to the earlier point about fruits and vegetables. As we all know, scientists divide everything in the world into three
    categories: animal, mineral, and vegetable. We all know that beer and wine are not animal, and they are not on the periodic table of elements, so
    that only leaves one thing, right? My advice: Have a burger and a beer and enjoy your liquid vegetables.
    Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
    A: Well, if you have a body, and you have body fat, your ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.
    Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
    A: Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No Pain = Good.
    Q: If I stop smoking, will I live longer?
    A: Nope. Smoking is a sign of individual statement and peace of mind. If you stop, you'll probably stress yourself to death in record time.
    Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
    A: You're not listening. Foods are fried these days in vegetable oil. In fact, they're permeated in it. How could getting more vegetables
    be bad for you?
    Q: What's the secret to healthy eating?
    A: Thicker gravy.
    Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?
    A: Definitely not! When you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger. You should only be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.
    Q. Is chocolate bad for me?
    A: Are you crazy? Cocoa beans... Another vegetable. It's the best feel good food around!

    I can't think of a vege I don't them all, even turnips.
    One preparation that I haven't seen mentioned is green beans with thinly-sliced almonds and lemon butter.
    Cook green beans in tons of lightly salted water until just tooth-tender, then drain and rinse w/ icy-cold water, melt butter and lightly saute almonds, then add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, then the green beans, and a dash of lemon-pepper. Yum.

    The trick to keeping the bright green color of any green vege, is the cooking in copeous amounts of water til tender, then the cold-water bath.

    But on the other hand, you can't beat a big mess of green beans, cooked 'khaki' colored with ham and potatoes, and of course, cornbread is mandatory!! Right fine eatin', summer or winter, imo.

    You know what they say about Asparagus don't you????????


  • ladonna


    So many; all yummy! But I'd have to say marinated raw Capsicum.
    Next would be Cauliflower with cheese sauce, or raw....anyhow it comes.
    I love my potato as well.

    Phallic symbols?

    Symbolic of a phallus could be cucumbers yes, I suppose they can be.
