On Sunday, we took Jay out for the day, to show our appreciation for how much he rocks. One of the places we stopped at was K&W Cafeteria. What does this have to do with this Eat Your Veggies Day post, you ask? The salad. Oh man, Jay and I both got their summer salad. It had cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, green peppers and a dressing of vinegar and oil. It was so good. With salads, you really don’t need all that razzmatazz. Just keep it simple.

Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts With Bacon: 10 Delicious Recipes With Veggies for Eat Your Veggies Day {Eat Your Vegetables Day} from Cheap Is The New Classy

Some of my favorite vegetables are potatoes, green beans, tomatoes {actually a fruit, but they will always be veggies in my heart}, onions, cucumbers, corn and Brussels Sprouts. I don’t get to eat Brussels sprouts nearly as often as I would like because I find that a lot of people don’t like them. I have no idea way. They are like tasty little cabbages {that look like lettuce} but WAY better tasting. I think I will try this recipe above to try to entice my family to eat more Brussels Sprouts. After all, everything is better with bacon, right?

I can’t say that I have ever tried edamame. I am not even 100% sure what that is, but I looked on Google and this is what it told me, for anyone else who may not be enlightened either..

Edamame or edamame bean is a preparation of immature soybeans in the pod, found in the cuisine of Taiwan, China, Japan, Indonesia and Hawaii. The pods are boiled or steamed and served with salt.

At any rate, I love avocado and think this recipe looks yummy. :)

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

  18. Omg that eggplant looks awesome! I’m going to try the recipe this weekend!

  19. These look tasty the only thing i would not eat is the sprouts.We eat a lot of salad.

  20. The grilled graffiti eggplant and the Brussels sprouts with bacon look positively delicious. I have to try them out.

  21. These are great ways to get more veggies. The corn salsa is perfect for summer!

  22. I have never tried cream of asparagus soup. I do love fresh asparagus, and I love cream soup, so I bet this would be a win.

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      We always laugh at Jay when he eats corn on the cob because I eat mine neat, in straight lines and he eats his by taking random bites everywhere. By the time he is done, it looks like some crazed animal attacked his cob, lol!

  27. I love the corn salsa! It’s such a great addition to a summer party!

  28. The caprese salad pockets look so good! I’d love to give those a try.

  29. roasted brussels sprouts with bacon, yum. that’s the only way I’ll eat them

  30. teresa mccluskey says:

    We love veggies in our home! So good! I am thinking of making green bean casserole soon!

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      I love green bean casserole and make sure to make it at least around the holidays. No one else in my house likes it, though, so that is why I only make it then. When you are having to eat it yourself, it starts not to look so good after a while, lol.

  31. Amy Desrosiers says:

    I love fresh veggie based dishes in the Summer! Sweet corn and avocado are the best!

  32. Summer is such a great time to take advantage of the fresh veggies! I love to try new veggie recipes.

  33. I’ve never tried Eggplant before. However, that grilled eggplant looks amazing so I might have to give it a try.

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      You definitely should. It’s interesting because, to me, it fills you up and has a texture similar to meat, but I imagine it is much better for you in certain respects. :)

  34. I love, love this post. Brussel Sprouts are one of my favorites. We make corn salsa quite a lot.

  35. Birdiebee says:

    The oven roasted Brussel Sprouts look so delicious. Our family loves brussel sprouts and this recipe will certainly be a hit with everyone.
