I think I cook zuccini/squash, eggplant, bell peppers, tomatoes a lot because they are easy to wash, cut, and cook, and I won't be tired of the dishes made from them.

But I don't think I'd get enough nutrition from them since I'd be lacking leafy vegetables.
Well, we are huge veggie lovers, me especially, so it is hard to pick a few, but we do eat a lot of broccoli, squash, green beans and asparagus. Of course I am not counting salad greens. We have salad at least 3 or times a week. And I know tomatoes are not actually a veggie, but during the summer I probably eat one or more a day myself.

Practically everything that has already been mentioned.
Sundays I visit the salad bar at our local grocery store and depending on which one and the times we get there, most often see/pick up:
greens - lettuce and kale, spinach
sliced up carrots,
mushrooms,
chick peas,
radish,
green peppers (look for red/orange and yellow but sometimes pickings there can be almost non-existent),
black olives,
sometimes broccoli,


Healthy Choice microwaveable soups
vegetable


carrots - and sometimes celery sticks - 6 packs as snacks (small peanut butter)


frozen veggies - some single versions/some combos (steamed) like to see corn, squash, potatoes (sweet, red, ...),




Shh, I'm not quite into foraging for dandelion, altho I have known some who make it into wine.

I have been horrible with vegetables since the cold weather arrived.
But if I had a personal chef who was going to buy and make the food for me, I'd put on my list:


zucchini
broccoli
baby carrots
celery
green onions
onions
red potatoes
arugula
spinach

I eat a lot of broccoli, raw and cooked spinach.

Broccoli florets can be easily chopped off the stock, rinsed and sauteed or steamed on top of the stove (you can boil too, but be careful not to over boil or else you'll boil all the nutrients out of them).

Spinach can be eaten in a salad raw, torn up and thrown in scrambled eggs or an omelet, torn up and thrown in a soup (canned or homemade), torn up and thrown in a blended smoothie raw, or just sauteed in a pan with garlic, salt and a bit of olive oil with a spritz of water.

Delicious.

I should eat more veggies (I like them), just too tired to be bothered preparing them - lol.

I drink "Amazing Grass - Immunity Blend" to fill in the missing links. lol

In the summer months, we eat tons of tomatoes from the garden, as well as bell peppers and zucchini. I live in farm country, so we also get fabulous sweet corn on the cob that I will grill or use raw in salads.

These days, my go to veggies are squash (we spiralize a lot) spinach, sweet potatoes, peppers, broccoli, kale, cauliflower & carrots.

I made a chicken stirfry last night with onions, broccoli, edamame, red bell pepper & cashews that was delicious.

Yes, it's more commonly made into wine. But you can eat the leaves as a salad. Oh, wait - those you cook? Potatoes, tomatoes, onions, carrots, corn, rice, beans.
