Also check the recipe and suggestions forum. There are often vegetable recipes posted or meat with vegetable recipes that you can just omit the meat in.

I mostly eat fresh veggies, very often just steamed with some butter or cheese sauce and I eat lots of salads.

Raw vegetables and the skin of the vegetables are the best for you.

I don't know if you eat soy or any faux meats, but I use a lot of them as well. And I eat beans a couple of times per week.

Oven roasted veggies really bring out the flavor in some things, like sweet potatoes, cabbage, brussels sprouts, etc.

I hope this helps. If you search thru this forum also, there are a few veggie recipes posted.

Raw veggies like zucchini, carrots, dips that are raw like raw cashew blended with organic olive oil and fresh garlic .... or make a advocado spread with chopped cilantro and red onion and a lil lime juice .....you can make advocado
lettuce wraps .... or how about raw zucchini spirals with chopped tomatoes and fresh basil a lil olive oil and a bit of raw garlic on top .... eating raw at least part of your day is very healthy.

I have found that turnips sliced and fried in coconut oil make a great substitute for potatoes. Surprisingly they do not soak up a lot of oil. These have become my goto veggie when I am craving carbs.

Konjac noodles are low net carbs and you can make a low carb coconut Thai soup with konjac noodles .... roasted seaweed snacks are low carb and great for a salty snack wasabi flavoured is spicy .... almond milk is low carb and so are some coconut milk in cans .... eating a salad before a meal will fill you up and either making your own dressing or buying Annie's brand is a healthier choice than some of those other dressings with too many ingredients that you can barely pronounce or even guess what it is Lol

Homemade kale chips are a great snack while being low carb and low calorie. This recipe calls for olive oil but you can substitute it with coconut oil if you'd like! I also don't put nearly as much salt as the recipe says..I kinda just put a bit in my palm and sprinkle it throughout: Crispy Kale Chips Recipe : Melissa d'Arabian : Recipes : Food Network

Quorn chicken pieces are great in a bowl with some single cream and a handful of brussel sprouts. Add salt, pepper, herbs - Microwave for 4 to 5 minutes and you have a lovely creamy 'chicken' dish
