    Bitter gourd is your best bet! I try to incorporate that in my diet daily. Although the plant itself has a bitter taste, with superb preparation, it tastes not so bad. You can purchase fresh bitter gourd at a more diverse supermarket, slice it in pieces, and stir fry it with a bit of salt and oyster sauce.
    Another one would be celery, good for entree or snacks. I know it's better to eat it raw, but sometimes it gets boring. To eat it cooked, I like to stir fry celery with tomato sauce and you can add meat if you'd like.
    good luck!
