Cooking vegetables in the same fashion can take your interest off. Keep from getting bored out of veggies by doing a little flavouring. You can add just a little olive oil or flavour it with garlic or vinegar.

These include sweet potatoes, potatoes, white beans, tomato products, beet greens, soybeans, lima beans and spinach.
