Do you eat a lot of vegetables? If you’re visualizing the “huge” salad you have for lunch and nodding yes, not so fast. That’s not a lot. Eating a lot of vegetables means you eat them at every meal. Every meal.

I eat a lot of salads and consume enough raw spinach to make my belly poke out. But if I were to line up the salads I ate last month, I’d be disappointed. The base is kale or spinach. The toppings are carrots, cucumbers, beets (if I’m at Whole Foods), and onions (if I don’t have to kiss anyone). They all look same. I’m too cool to be this boring.

This ain’t 1950. I have choices. I choose to eat more different vegetables. To do that, I have to experiment with cooking the ones I’m not willing to eat raw, like¬†broccoli, eggplant, cauliflower, etc.

I found a diagram that shows how long you should cook vegetables, whether you’re roasting, steaming, boiling, or microwaving them. This guide is courtesy of Domestic Superhero, a wonderful place for your hungry eyes.
