Mine love beans too. I also feed frozen veg, I wouldn`t have the time or money to pay for fresh I don`t think.
I am a veggi and have been for over 50 years so all my birds got used to fresh veg even my dogs like sprouts, where ever you live you should always been able to grow a few veg and with wild greens / flowers there is no reason why you should pay out loads of money to give your birds the best

I'm just wondering what everyone here thinks about / has experienced with feeding cabbage to cockatiels. I was surprised to read in a book on cockatiels that it is not safe for them to eat, and there is conflicting information on the web about this. One thing I haven't found anywhere is an actual reason why they shouldn't have it, so I am inclined to think it's just hearsay. I hope someone can clear this up for me since they seem reluctant to try fruit or vegetables and cabbage is one of the only things they seem to like and they have eaten a fair bit already this week.

You can give veg raw or cooked, potatoe should always be cooked. What I do is make up a mix of any cooked veg and add it to either rice or pasta and serve warm. It seems to go down better if served warm :)

Just something I do to get my picky monster to eat veggies is, in the Summer months, I juice some veg (not potatoes), sometimes with a piece of fruit - and freeze the liquid in an ice cube tray. Depending on what you use, it either comes out as juice, or a smoothie. 

Ri loves munching on an ice cube (in his bowl) and then gets his veggies as well. Only when it's hot weather though. ; )
