50 Shades of Food: Nothing but love for the veggies

Pull up a chair and settle in for our 50 Shades of Food series, where we introduce you to mouthwatering, shiver-inducing, hot, sexy food porn. It's safe-for-work browsing, sure to get your heart racing and your palms a little sweaty, and the only drawback is a possible hunger pang or two after viewing.

Food porn doesn't always hit all the nutrition groups, but as we gear up for the holidays, we thought it might be fun to show the more healthful side of food porn. Being bad when it comes to fried chicken, doughnuts, mac 'n' cheese and burgers always feels good, but there is definitely a sexy side to vegetables, too.

We can all agree that there is nothing attractive about a boiled or steamed vegetable. Well, if you're into that kind of thing, to each his own. But roasted or grilled veggies, those are in a different league of hotness.

Juan Carlos Nerio shared this photo of a sandwich practically bursting with roasted vegetables. Red peppers, green peppers, a green onion stalk and herbs all artfully come together between two slices of bread. Blistered, glistening skin, and charred kisses from the oven give these vegetables nothing but love.

If you'd like to get in on the food porn action, upload photos of your food to our What did you eat this weekend? gallery -- and we'll be on the lookout for photos that make our eyes pop. You can also share photos with us on our Facebook page or on Twitter. Be sure to include your name, a description of the photo and any personal blog or Twitter handle you'd like us to give a shout-out to.
