Yeah, with any soup you want everything to be Bite sized

I'm going to be going back on the ketogenic diet soon and need some ideas for ways I can eat enough vegetables while on it, I've always had a hard time eating enough greens. Anyone have any easy and delicious recipes so I can make sure to get more veggies in my diet?

2017-09-13 23:33:12 UTC  

The Nutri Bullet is an easy way to get a lot of greens in you.

2017-09-13 23:33:38 UTC  

Good luck on keto. I almost killed people while I tried it from lack of carbs lol

2017-09-17 03:51:58 UTC  

@Gaius Mucius Scaevola Kale or spinach mixed with rice is always great. But that might be a problem for the ketogenic approach.

2017-09-17 03:52:15 UTC  

Alternatively, you can just sautee them and skip the rice altogether.

2017-09-17 03:53:15 UTC  

Spinach and artichoke dip is a great post-workout snack. The problem there, once again, is that it's usually eaten with some carb like crackers or pita chips

2017-09-22 21:57:43 UTC  

^ sugar snap peas

2017-09-22 21:57:56 UTC  

Sugar snaps and hummus is my go to snack

2017-09-22 21:58:12 UTC  

Hummus is the only good thing to ever come from the Middle East

Home made sauce. Simmered for 6 hours

^get in touch with your inner chinaman with probably the best way to cook rice known to (white) man

2017-10-02 12:48:37 UTC  

To cook the best rice, all you need it do it rinse it very well, and let it sit in water for 2 hours before turning the rice cooker on.

2017-10-02 12:48:43 UTC  

Best sticky white rice ever

2017-10-02 23:30:22 UTC  

^ can confirm.
I like making this type of rice with the Thai jasmine basmati rice

That's like perfect weight lifting food right there

2017-10-04 15:18:08 UTC  

Yeah I just started lifting. Eating high protien is a bonus!

2017-10-06 14:17:28 UTC  

Anyone else in here Vegan that has any good recipes?

2017-10-06 14:18:40 UTC  

What kinda of foods do you like?

2017-10-06 14:24:12 UTC  

I would say I mainly stick to a whole foods diet. I am a huge veggie eater for sure, beans, potatos, broccoli, corn, peas, all the greens, and hummus. I also love to cook rice, cook different forms of tofu dishes, make smoothies, have fruit with some peanut butter, and have pasta dishes and such. I also have a huge appetite for PBJs lol, those are my weakness.

2017-10-06 14:24:47 UTC  

But the certain foods I love is a tofu or veggie burger sandwich with lettuce tomato and onions, rice, and a side of either broccoli or cauliflower!

2017-10-06 14:29:25 UTC  

Have you ever made homemade veggie burgers out of chickpeas, veggies, and flax egg? You can make a ton of those and freeze them for later. Also, curries are always good and super easy. Just roast some spices and add onion, garlic, lentils or chickpeas, potatoes, some tomato paste and no salt added veggie broth and whatever veggies you like. And stuffed sweet potatoes are always good as well.

2017-10-06 14:30:44 UTC  

And if you like pasta, you know the possibilities are endless there

2017-10-06 14:33:17 UTC  

It's so true that the possibilities are endless. People think vegans just eat lettuce and kale lol. I really want to try that homemade veggie burgers, sounds delicious. Do you have a link to any credible recipe I could follow?

2017-10-06 14:37:45 UTC  

Tbh, I just kinda of throw things that I need to use up together. The base is always chickpeas or black beans and sweet potato and a flax egg (sometimes a little oatmeal if it feels like it needs it) and then shred some zucchini and carrots, if you have some mushrooms leftover from anything chose those up and throw them in. And of course dice up some onion and garlic as well. Do you have a pressure cooker?

2017-10-06 14:42:41 UTC  

Yeah!

But how do you make the burgers have a little consistancy so it sticks together and wont call apart?

2017-10-06 14:47:13 UTC  

Flax egg helps w that. And using sweet potatoes helps it as well. You have to kinda mash it all up to make it that consistency that why I asked if you have a pressure cooker. If you use dry beans, it’s a quick way to cook them and the potatoes and make them really soft and easy to mash. You’ll have to get your hands dirty on this one but if you make a lot, it’ll last a long time. Once you make them, the right consistency and it’s nice and mashed up (leave a little lumps for texture) then form it into patties and pan fry those puppies up!

2017-10-06 14:54:44 UTC  

Oh and I almost forgot the pièce de résistance! Cook up some red quinoa and it’ll give it a kinda reddish tint making it look more like a meat burger

2017-10-06 14:58:38 UTC  

Perfect! I'm going to have to try them later this weekend! Hopefully they turn out life the beyond burgers, those burgers taste absolutely amazing, have the best consistency, and have that greate smokey taste and red tint

2017-10-06 15:12:51 UTC  

I’m gonna look around for the original base recipe that I started with and I’ll let you know if I find it
