Veggie/Fruit Master/Reference List??

Postby FlapJack16 » Wed Feb 24, 2021 7:28 am

Hey,
I was wondering if someone had a website that had kind of a master list of veggies that are good staples, occasional options, rare options, treats, etc that they liked.
Like, every vegetable.

It would be nice to have a list on the fridge/to take shopping than looking up individual things all the time.

It seems like every list I see when I look it up is different with what is considered staple/occasional/treat.

A good site/list that has some research/science behind the "properties" of the vegetation would be super cool, if someone had that resource.
Bonus points if it is printable :)

Thanks!

This is the one I keep on my phone for grocery shopping. It doesn't have EVERYthing, but it's got a lot (just ignore what they say about Kale, which has been agreed to be a good staple since this list came out).

That is quite the list, and really, really helpful. Thank you :) I will definitely use it!!

Why was Kale originally bad, and what changed in the research on it? Just curious

This link from Karrie goes into the kale issue way better than I could... my understanding was that it was inaccurate / incomplete information, thinking that kale was high in oxalates that prevent calcium from being absorbed properly, and newer research refutes that claim.

I still try to rotate my greens, because my finicky boy will stop eating them if he gets bored with one particular type!

FlapJack is incredibly picky. He is just about 18 months old, now. He has eaten SO few veggies "growing up"... he just doesn't like them. I offered a lot of variety- collard, mustard, bell pepper, cactus, kohlrabia, bok choy, squash, cucumber, and even a few fruits like blueberries and strawberries. With or without supplements, he doesn't want them.
If I put bugs on top, the bugs fall through the leaves to the bottom, and he doesn't register- or he will pick out the bugs, if they don't fall through.

Coming out of brumation, it seems to be a little better- still not great though. Eating by hand, a lot more than before, but if I dust them, he won't touch them, and If i leave them next to him or in his bowl, there is a 3% chance he will touch them.

As an adult, he is supposed to be 80/20 veggies to bugs- he is just such a stinker, I don't know what to do for him :?
One method is to "starve" them of bugs, and only offer veggies, but he didn't go for it, not really, and after 1-2 days I felt terrible and gave him bugs again.

I'm thinking I might try that again- he needs to be eating vegetation as his main thing. (I asked about it on here before and it checked out, i think).
But on the other hand, he is a little bit too skinny, and I need him to gain a little weight too... ugh.

He knows what he is doing- he is smart :lol:
