Is it considered "pigging out" if it's on vegetables?

I love roasted vegetables.  They are delicious!  A friend loaned me this cookbook and I tried the Asian Roasted Broccoli recipe and I pretty much ate the whole thing.  Yeah, I pigged out......on broccoli! 

Asian-Style Roasted Broccoli

1 1/2 pounds of broccoli (1 medium head, cut into florets)
2 cloves garlic
1 medium shallot
1 T peeled and chopped fresh ginger
1 T toasted sesame oil
1 T tamari or reduced sodium soy sauce
freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a bowl, mix the broccoli with the garlic, shallot, ginger, oil, and tamari and season with the pepper to taste.  Spread out in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast until the florets are tender but still bright green, about 20 minutes.  Serve hot or at room temperature.

Since we're on the topic of roasted veggies, I also LOVE this recipe for Curry Roasted Cauliflower.  (I made it today as well and pigged out on it too!)

Curry Roasted Cauliflower

1 head of cauliflower, cut into bite-sized pieces
2 cloves garlic, minced
olive oil  (I don't measure.  Just drizzle it on!)
curry powder (Spinkle as much as you want on top.  I use a LOT.)
salt (to taste)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix everything in a bowl and put it on a cookie sheet.  Roast in the oven for about 30 minutes.  Delicious!
