Chicory is something I never ate as a child because I once took a bite and didn’t liked it’s taste. Yesterday I thought, maybe it tastes not too bad… So I ate a portion of chicory and guess what? I liked the taste! Who would have thought? Not me anyway :) 2 weeks ago

First: Potatoes (for the purposes of my own goal) don’t count. Potatoes are tubers, not true vegetables, and they’re packed with starch. Perhaps I should re-name this goal to read “eat more green vegetables”.
Second: I am eating more tomatoes and spinach now, because both of these foods are available in decent quality/quantity as of March/April. Tomatoes are fruits, not true vegetables, but I’m being lenient toward myself on this point because I haven’t eaten a lot of tomatoes until I made this goal.
Third: Buying a bundle of spinach (Nepali saag, which is in fact a word for all sorts of edible greens), washing it, chopping it, blah blah blah, tends to be problematic when I am on lunch break. I have started washing and chopping it the previous night and putting it in a bowl in the refrigerator, so that when I come to cook lunch, all I have to do is throw it in the pot. This has helped a lot. 7 months ago
How I did it: As a kid, half of my diet was in the form of sugar-loaded mass-produced zero-nutrition foods. The result of this habit was a childhood of being chubby and lethargic. You can imagine that it wasn't a desirable combination. I thought I was simply unlucky in the genetic lottery. I didn't know better.
I joined a CSA! For $35 a week I’ll get a weekly box of fresh produce—fruits and veggies-but mostly veggies! Each night I’m going to use one of the veggies when I cook dinner. Tonight it’s roasted broccoli! 10 months ago
I’m also fabulous friends with butternut squash and the sweet potato. Nom nom nom. 11 months ago
