Last year, when we were excruciatingly poor, we caught all of the cabbages and carrots we could at the St. Patricks Day parade (yes, here in New Orleans, they throw food from the floats for St. Patrick's Day) and ate carrots and cabbage in and with every meal for close to a month. I don't like coleslaw, so I just assumed I didn't like cabbage...but in a sauce, stir fry, or just sauteed with a little bacon and balsamic vinegar...mmmm... the perfect poor man's food.


Great tips. Thanks!


Wait, though, how long did it take you to *enjoy* eating a whole bag of collard greens at one meal? I thought I used those more than the average cook, but I would never sit down and eat a boxful. Do tell.


Hey Erin, thanks for the great tips. Carrots and onions are some of the veggies I have access to all year long, with the lettuce that I mentioned before. I am grocery shopping tomorrow and I have already put some of those steam packages on my list. I always stuck to the plain old bags since they were cheaper but now I am going to try some of those new steamers as lunches with leftover dinner meat or maybe 1/2 a sandwich. Thanks again for all of your weight loss/healthy eating posts. You never fail to inspire me!


Jamie - I probably only have 3/4 of a bag of collard greens at a sitting... I always liked collard greens with olive oil and lemon juice. One thing about the frozen collard greens, for some reason the instructions on the bag say to boil them for 20 minutes. This is far, far too long (at least for my taste). Saute them without defrosting first, or if you don't mind them pretty plain, microwave for... oh, I don't know, 8 minutes? In a dish covered with saran wrap.
