Easy to make & chew vegetables?

Hello again everyone. I've another question for all of you, if that's okay. I don't get near enough vegetables- I don't think I get any, in fact, during my average day. But I have braces, and everything I've tried it kind of hard for me to chew. Either it's completely impossible (-should've seen me try to bite into a carrot the other day. You probably would've laughed at me- ) or it's just hard and takes to long (-I cut some zucchini and squash into slices, and I only ate about half of the amount I packed in my school's designated lunch time.-) So, does anyone have any suggestions? I'd prefer things easy to get, and anything that won't require cooking would be amazing. I'm scared of anything that gets to high temperature, myself. Ehehe. Tons of thanks!
