    Hi all,

    I was having a thnk about my vegetable intake and realised I eat far more 'salad' veg than any other. I have tons of onion, mushroom, peppers, leafy salad, tomatoes ETC. Is this ok? For some reason i've gone all paranoid...:eek:

    I eat mainly salad's especially at the moment with the hotter weather, but I do try to eat a variety of veggies when I can, but as Squiddie says all salads and veggies are good for you and free on SW, so enjoy them all. X

    im the same i eat more salads but my consultant has told me i should bring up my veg intake to get the bigger losses hmm seems different consultants say different things, mine is dead against saving syns up for a treat, she pushes flexi syns and it seems to work well x

    I agree erinsmummy, I think all consultants are different, mine seems quite relaxed with flexi syns/saving them up. I think she would probably plug flexi more if your losses were slower? I have had good losses so far, so will continue doing what i'm doing I think!

    I unfortunately despise salad (I've tried believe me) so I make up for it with loads of other vegetables. I think as long as you're eating some vegetables (including salad) then it's fine.

    Variety is the spice of life, really you should vary your fruit/veg intake as much as possbile - but like I said before, get it where you can :D

    Thankfully, I absolutely adore all fruit, vegetables and salad items! Can't imagine how you survive without loads! Still, better than a friend of mine - her husband will eat very few, and he's a vegetarian!!!

    I love fruit thankfully but the only veggies I can eat are potatoes. Wish I could eat salad

    Just make sure you have a good selection of colours in your veg and you'll be ok. Peppers are stuffed with vitaminc tomatoes stop you getting cancer, baby spinach and rocket have iron. Enjoy them ! ( I grow my own so they're even fresher!)

    I'm the opposite, I'm not a big fan of fruit, I like apples, strawberries, grapes and kiwi's and that's about it. But I do like a big range of veg, but not cauliflower, sprouts or brocclii. I think I'm still 5, and throw my greens up the wall :p

    ha ha squiddie - I can just imagine you throwing sprouts up the wall!!

    As the others have said, as long as you eat your 5 a day it doesn't matter where they come from, just try to eat different colours (red pepper, green lettuce, orange carrots etc etc). I think a lot of us are on salad at the moment rather than veg so don't worry!

    I'm really into stir-frys at the minute and all sorts of veg in it, pepers, onions, carrots, courgettes, mushrooms and water chestnuts. Yum yum :D
