Mom to Aly Posted August 3, 2008 Share Posted August 3, 2008 OK, I posted recently about having lost 61 pounds (I'm up to 63 now:D), so you know I'm not thin. But I should be, for the way I cook--hey, I've always had a slow metabolism, raised vegetarian, which does make a dif. Anyway, I was looking at the green bean recipe swap thread, and I don't get it. Why do Americans almost always feel it is necessary to add oil/butter/fat/meat to veggies? I have never and will never do this (well, obviously not the meat, but the rest, too). We grew up with no butter or oil, and no salt in my house (told you I should be thin!!). I love veggies, and I want to taste them! Why add all the rest? Please tell me--I really don't get it! And isn't a big point of veggies the whole healthy side? Why do the whole fat thing to yourselves? I live in VA, where you basically cannot get veggies in a rest w/o meat in them, and if you can, they are saturated with oil or butter. WHY, WHY, WHY???
