    Tough it out ;] Try fried green beans in garlic.. plain veggies get old fast.

    You can put spinach in shakes, and most veggies are undetectable in sauces if you cook them down.

    Haha all good ideas and I've done every one except the shake idea. I've been doing this for a couple years now and today I took a bite of my cooked veggies in my fav hot sauce and almost puked lol. Thanks though i might try and go back to raw veggies for a while. How long are cooked veggies good for btw. My wife usually cooks up a huge pan of like asparagus, beans, broccoli etc and put em in the fridge for a few days.

    I'd say a few days. I usually eat or throw out leftovers by the 3rd day.

    Multivitamins do not replace whole food nutrition.. in my opinion. It just fills in the gaps.

    Agree but my coach also say we strictly use veggies as fillers to help keep me feeling full. They also aid in the digestion of the meat/protein so I know the importance I just thought I read somewhere of a veggie replacement supp somewhere.

    MLS thanks for the web link for recipes :-)

    I don't think you can replace any real food with supplements. A good way to consume a lot of vegetable nutrients is to juice them. You won't get as much fiber but it's a lot easier to drink a big bunch of veggies than chew them. And maby then supplement with psyllium fiber.

    Another way to eat them in liquid is to make a vegetable stock. The nutrients (the ones that aren't destroyed in the cooking process) go into the liquid and it's a good base for a soup with meat and vegetables.

    Thanks, but explain to me why on the label of green supreme it says, "this products contains ingredients that the state of California deems leads to cancer " or something to that effect? Lol

    Has anyone used either of these?

    Definitely this.

    Just juice up some spinach, broccoli etc hold your nose and get it down haha. Add some water and some fats (like oil to aid in absorption) and you're golden.

    Tried this today for the 1st time and it was actually pretty good....

    Van protein, splenda, oats, and frozen asparagus blended with a few ice cubes. The shake turned out thick and tasty!!

    Hvac gave good recommendations bro that and gold feast. CL Gold feast may be right up your alley. The label is required to say that to sell in California NBD.

    Everyone always says whole food whole food blah blah blah. Yes, whole food is the way to go but if you're not getting enough which 70% (prob higher) of the people on this forum are not then there is nothing wrong with supplementing.

    There are also just straight up fruit and vegetable pills you can get.
