oh yes, i love raw veggies especially on salads. lettuce is my favorite along with carrots, tomatoes, celery, and onions. i usually have them with housand island dressing or just the vinegarette dressing. i also like the grated raddish and pickles for enchilladas.

I only eat raw veggies in a salad. I have a hard time eating some veggies alone like celery and carrots.

Oh ya, I love eating raw vegetables such as cabbage, lettuce, carrots, parsley. As long as the vegies are not bitter, I love eating it.

I love to eat some raw veggies like carrots, bell peppers, and I love to have salads. I like the taste and the crunch, and that they are healthy snacks and dinners.

There isn't a green, red, purple or blue veggie I don't like. However I don't get enough of them, and I prefer cooked vegetables over raw unless I'm eating a salad.

I love eating raw carrots, becuase they are delicious and i think they taste better than cooked ones! I also love salads, i don't think i'd really want to eat salad cooked/hot, it doesn't seem right. I could happily eat cherry tomatoes just on their own, or munch on a bit of cucumber, that's very refreshing actually.

I love raw veg. particularly carrots, brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, mushrooms, and all the other lovely veg that lose their flavour and texture when they're overcooked.

I love raw vegetables. I really love radishes, lettuce and broccoli. My favorite though is a red onion. To me, it has a sweet taste. Give me a salad with all of these in it and I'll feel like a queen.

I love vegetables! I do enjoy eating salad in the summer time and I like to eat raw carrots with dip sometimes. I also like cooked vegetables. They are very good for you and I think that you feel better when you eat a lot of fruits and veggies.

I like to eat raw veggies. It is good for me and I don't gain weight like when you eat cooked veggies with added fats. There are a lot of nutrients and fiber in raw veggies.

I am a diabetic so I eat a lot of raw vegetables to help maintain my sugar levels. I have always eaten a lot of vegetables so this is really easy for me.Besides Raw vegetables are actually better for you then cooked because when you cook vegetables they have a tendencay to lose nutrients.

I much prefer all my veggies raw! carrots, celery, radishes, cole slaw, broccoli, cauliflower... the list goes on and on! I do eat them cooked, to, but the fresher, the better in my book. LOL! It drives my hubby nuts when I go to the garden and pick and eat fresh beans and peas while out there, when I should be bringing them in to cook. How else do I know if they are good enough for everyone else? Unless I try them myself. HA HA HA!

Fruits and vegetables - Basket full of fruits and vegetables.
i like vegetables very much and i like to eat them fresh and uncooked if they have been washed thoroughly. they don’t have the cholesterol or sugar and are filled with healthy vitamins, minerals and enzymes that our bodies so desperately need. i am fond of eating salads too that have the veggies like cabbage, carrots, lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, even broccoli. eat more vegetables – and live a longer and healthier life!

I am not to keen on a lot of vegetables to be honest. But when I do eat them I prefer them raw just because I think they taste better that way.

YEs I do eat raw vegetables lke carrots, cabbage, lettuce, cucumber, etc. I like 'em better when veggie is raw (like eating veg salad) because I think it's more nutritious than when it's already cooked.^_^ Just have to make sure that it's cleaned before it's eaten raw..^_^

I am eating raw vegetables. It includes tomatoes, lettuce, carrots, cucumber, cabbage, bell pepper, onions, garlic and turnips. I like their crunchiness and the sweet flavor of fresh raw vegetables. Maybe its an acquired taste, i grew up w/ parents who ate alot of vegetables.
