How can I enjoy vegetables?

I'm the type of person who LOVES sweet things. I eat a lot of fruit but I mean it's not always good to have all of that sugar. I don't like eating vegetables really. The only ones I like to eat are corn, carrots, iceberg lettuce, romaine lettuce, onions, zucchini, and potatoes. What are some ways I can eat more vegetables and actually enjoy them? I'm pretty much asking for food combinations so I can eat the vegetables I DON'T like so I can get my vitamins!

  • Spinach has a mild flavour, just squeeze out excess liquid. It wilts quickly and can be soggy.
    Try thinking of veggies as an ingredient.
    - Cheese - asparagus omelette.
    - cabbage sautéed with onions, garlic, ginger, fennel seeds and soy sauce
    - aloo gobi, easy Indian recipe, cauliflower & potatoes cooked with garam masala.
    - don't be afraid of salt.
    Lemon is a great flavour enhancer.
    - chopped Brussels sprouts sautéed with fennel seeds, garlic, ginger, and a squeeze of lemon.
    You can mix veggies with a favourite savoury ingredient, lardons, pork cracklings et cetera.

  • You already eat a lot of vegetables. If you want to eat more try to see if the italian way of cooking them is good for you.

    The secret for a good diet is to eat everything, but in small quantities
