I've been cooking for myself more and more, but one thing I've realized is that most of the side dishes I make are just starch.. potatoes/rice/pasta/whatever

so what are some nice, easy to make sides (other than just saying "salad") that will help me tone my beach bod?

Roasted brussels sprouts. Little olive oil, salt and pepper and finished with a squeeze of lemon.


i don't mind brussels sprouts, but the thing is that cooked brussels sprouts smell like fart.

How have you cooked them? If you boil them, yeah they do. But if you roast or sautee them they don't really smell at all.

BOB 1. ur 20 and two u like evil things and idk if u worship the devil
hm.. i boiled and then sauteed for a minute, but just to coat it in the sauce (basically just the shit you were saying.. oil, s&p, lemon juice, and some herbs, plus sauteed onions and mushrooms)
Aside from salad, when I'm trying to avoid carbs, I've gotten pretty good stuff out of just... not having rice or pasta with my food and just frying up a bunch of vegetables with my chicken or whatever and eating them like that.
Spinach, watercress, kale, cabbage with sour cream and bacon, corn on the cob, braised beans etc

A fruit salad of some form. I have some degree of success in mixing strawberries, pomegranate seeds (when I have them anyway), blueberries, raspberries, pineapple, and orange.

Cottage. Cheese.

Have you tried Kale? It's great in salad or steamed with some other veggies.

I once ate so much raw kale that my turned turned green and then started bleeding.

Spinach, bitter gourd, eggplant, asparagus, blueberries, kai lan, etc. not all mixed together but I like all of these prepared in any way. I just like vegetables in general, can't think of any that I hate.
