There’s more to life than broccoli

Posted Jan 17 2011 11:52pm

More than 49 things to be precise. So many people who are dialing in their diet, whether it be for competion prep or just improved health stick to the same list of 3 or 4 green vegetables. I can even be found guilty of this myself. It’s so easy to go to the vegie shop and just buy spinach, broccoli, green capsicums and mushrooms that sometimes we forget that there is a world of vegetables out there that are low-carbohydrates and high in fibre.

To help make your shopping and eating more exciting I”ve compiled this list of 50 different vegies that are low in carbohydrates and mostly fibre:

  1. Alfalfa Sprouts
  2. Artichoke Hearts
  3. Asparagus
  4. Basil
  5. Bamboo Shoots
  6. Bean sprouts
  7. Beetroot Greens
  8. Bock Choy
  9. Broccoli
  10. Broccolini
  11. Broccolili Rabe
  12. Brussels Sprouts
  13. Cabbage
  14. Capers
  15. Capsicum (Green)
  16. Cauliflower
  17. Coriander
  18. Celery
  19. Chard
  20. Chicory
  21. Chilies
  22. Chives
  23. Cucumbers
  24. Eggplant
  25. Endive
  26. Escarole
  27. Fennel
  28. Garlic
  29. Gai Lam
  30. Green Beans
  31. Kale
  32. Kan Kung
  33. Leeks
  34. Lettuce
  35. Mushrooms
  36. Mint
  37. Onion
  38. Parsley
  39. Rocket
  40. Radicchio
  41. Radishes
  42. Rhubarb
  43. Sauerkraut/kim-chee
  44. Seaweed/Nori
  45. Shallots
  46. Snow Peas
  47. Spinach
  48. Spring onion
  49. Water Chestnuts
  50. Zucchini

Which of these vegetables do you use the most, and which of these do you have no idea how to cook with?
