I've been looking for those everywhere for at least a year. I simply can't find them locally.

EGADS! I love the Japanese sweet potatoes! Purple skin/white flesh? Have you tried the other that is white skin lavender flesh?!? Oh man - there is one place here that I've found that consistently has both of them and I never share my secret with anyone. What if they're all bought up!??! I **did** offer to purchase and give as a gift.. so that's fair, right? :)

Technically (botanically) peppers, eggplant, squash, cucumbers, avocados, and okra aren't vegetables either but fruit. Why does everyone pick on the the poor tomato?

Yeah, I'm right there with you. Ya know, it is *made* out of vegetables (and whatever other crap a pig eats). As Jim Gaffigan says, "The pig-- the pig is turning an apple-- essentially garbage-- into bacon." Miracle food, it is.

You know.. I don't think there's a vegetable that I've met that I haven't fallen in love with.

On a daily basis I like to go with heartier leafier greens such as kale that are eaten raw or really quickly pan cooked, braised, oven roasted, stir fried, for at least one of my meals, and brightly coloured tubers, Adirondacks/all varieties of sweet, etc., but always always will eat for the season. Right now a lot of sweet little new tubers - the size of your thumb!, zucchini, beets, avocado, fennel, and really cool heirloom lettuces. Deers Tongue is crazy good.

I'm an equal opportunity veggie eater :)

Heirloom tomatoes. Can't get enough of them right now. In salads, fermented in salsa and relish, on big juicy grass-fed burgers... By themselves with a little sea salt.

Broccoli is my #1 and Spinach #2 but I probably eat spinach more often because I like to mix it with romaine lettuce in a salad which I eat several times per week.

Pizza!

No really, my current favorites are bean sprouts (mung bean, not soy) and snap peas. I also like bok choy, napa cabbage, and several varieties of winter squash. I love cooking mustard greens, spinach and collards together in butter and/or olive oil until they're soft.

I probably eat romaine lettuce more than anything else. I could munch on the hearts all day.

Asparagus, especially wrapped in bacon. Yams, especially wrapped up in foil and baked in a campfire. Real, lacto-fermented sauerkraut.

Bell peppers (red ones are the best)! I despised bell peppers as a child, but now I can't get enough of them! Stuffed peppers, diced peppers in soup, raw pepper strips dipped in sour cream, peppers in stir fry...they're everywhere and they're delicious!

Tomatoes. I literally will eat them like an apple. Except the juices squirting everywhere makes it difficult to eat in public.

Also, Baby carrots are a perfect snack! Get one tablespoon of almond butter, and BAM, perfect Paleo fast food!

Any kind of vegetable that makes a delivery vehicle for delicious fat - pastured butter, bacon fat, grass fed tallow - or sauces made from the above like hollandaise (including yolks from pastured eggs).

I almost don't care what it is - if I can slather it in fat, it's delicious.

Yellow squash/zucchini, spinach and fresh okra. I can eat squash and zucchini all day, every day, I love the stuff. Fried in butter, boiled till it's mushy, or raw in a salad, I don't care, I'll eat it. I'm the same with spinach, I'll eat it any way, raw cooked, or straight from a can. I grew up eating okra grown in our garden, and absolutely love it, most people hate the stuff, but I wallow in it's slimy mucilaginous goodness. I also have a love/hate relationship with brassicas, broccoli, cabbage, brussles sprouts, I love the way they taste, but since going paleo my stomach can't handle them, if I do eat them I know to prepare myself for the half hour of stomach cramps.

Asparagus in the Spring- lots and lots. Red Beets. Tomatoes in the Summer. But outside the local scene- avocados, the fruit that thinks it is a veggie- great fat content.

Now that I think of it, sweet potatoes are the only vegetable I eat these days. My favorite types are the white-fleshed varieties, specifically the Japanese ones with purplish skins.

My absolute favorite is artichokes. They're truly awesome.

But these days the veggies I eat the most are eggplant and tomatoes. For no other reason except that they take over my yard every summer and they're both terribly versatile. It varies by season, in the cooler months I eat a lot of kale, turnips & beets (greens included).
