How do I get out of my vegetable funk?

Suddenly, I am tired of veggies. Raw, cooked, it doesn't matter. Terribly uninspired....

Has this ever happened to you? How do you get your head back in the game?

Honestly, I never had that problem, but the dude I feed did.. the solution was.. bacon. Really. kale, beets, etc., whatever you can think of...ohhh! Brussels sprouts... and.. bacon! And then a gradual weaning of the goodstuffs bacon, substituting lots o garlic and/onion/ various spices. Good luck!

I felt the same way about meat. I stopped eating it...for about 2 days. It came back. Skip veggies for a week, it won't kill you. Eat the Paleo foods you want. The taste will come back.

Just cook with lots of herbs until your desire returns, they're packed extra tight with vitamins, tiny leaves with a big kick.

Guacamole with a buttload of cilantro, and chopped onion always tastes good to me even when I am not in the mood for greenage.

I'm with LikesLardinMayo. If I don't feel like my usual leafy salad, I skip and don't worry about it. Today, in fact, I skipped salad in favor of broccoli and asparagus simmered in bone broth.

Most of the time my food volume is about 25% meat, 50% salad and 25% fruit and vegetables. Today, I was over 50% meat. I also have days when all I eat is fruit and salad. I also have fasting days when I don't eat at all.

Once you are well nourished and have been off SAD for a while, you don't have to eat every category of nutrients every day. Just eat whole foods and eat what you're hungry for. Or prowl the produce section and try something you've never eaten before.

I go through this all the time. Usually it's because I've been stuck in a rut and eating the same ones. So I go to the store and say I won't buy any of the same ol. Like broccoli or green beans. Then I go home and find different recipe for the bok choy or the butternut squash I found. It's been an amazing turn around.

I found that a) searching for new recipes b) trying new veggies that I was too afraid to

went a long way in curing my veggie blues

otherwise.... suck it up and add bacon

Roast some tomato, peppers onion and garlic in coconut oil and salt for a bit. Eat like that or blend into a soup or a base for chili. Really great!

It really depends. Sometimes it's enough to check out new receipes for vegetables you normally enjoy. Other times you might need to just straight up try some new vegetables! If neither of those work, just go with your gut and lay off the veggies for a few days and concentrate on getting your nutrients from other foods. As long as you aren't letting yourself get deficient in anything, you'll probably be fine until your taste for veggies returns.

If you live in the northern hemisphere, you may be uninterested in veggies because there's not much growing right now. All the veggies at the grocery store have traveled a long way to get to you, or we're grown in a greenhouse. Either way, not the freshest, best tasting. I'm normally a huge veggie person, and my interest has completely waned. I'm basically just eating potatoes and onions right now. You could try eating more oysters and organs, and just not worry about eating veggies until they sound good to you again.

Cook onions in bacon fat and then cook your green beans in all of that.

Buy your veggies pre-cut and don't make anything that can't just be microwave-steamed or you'll lose motivation. Add some tuna, parsley, and lemon salt to all your vegetable dishes. Or saute everything in ghee, or with garlic and herb ghee. Keep lemon salt around, and when in doubt douse everything in that or a harissa or homemade hot saucy thing. I like white vinegar, garlic, tomato paste, and diced onions. Stiff upper lip.

I do a very non paleo / non primal thing. I go out and get a cheeseburger, fries, and an oreo blizzard. The next day I'm so sick...I'm happy to return to my veggies.

But I do enjoy them while having them.

I do cook my greens, green beans, cabbages, etc... with bacon in them for seasoning.
