"I don't like vegetables"

This was an old blog entry of mine and I heard it today ind one of my groups so I thought I'd repost it here.

"I don't like vegetables"

I've heard many people say I would love to eat more vegetables but I just don't like them.

I once sat in on a health seminar and the leader did an interesting experiment. He passed out a piece of paper with tons of vegetables listed and said -- you don't think you like vegetables? Look at this list and tell me there's not even one that you like. He made us circle the ones we liked and when I got home, I put this on my fridge.

I've listed a few here. Sure, maybe eggplant or corn isn't the same as green beans but it's much better than a side of fries. If you have more to add, please email me. Jackie

eggplant
corn
artichoke
peas
brocolli
cauliflower
celerty
mushrooms
arugula
okra
chives
garlic
onion
scallion
peppers
carrots
beets
spinach
butternut squash (yum!!)
zucchini (great sliced long in eggs)
spaghetti squash (great substitute for pasta if your'e into the lower carb)
pumpkin (yes, for more than just halloween)
tomato
jicama (great in salads)
sweet potato
yams (even better than sweet potato)
water chestnuts (these are amazing)
asparagus
avocado (I know, but sparingly they're full of good fat)
endive
spring greens
Beans (yes, these are considered veggies, butter, green, lima and the like)
brussel sprouts (if you don't like them, you've probably never had them cooked well -- they are supposed to be boiled to make them soft before they're "prepared"
cabbage
collard greens
Frisee
leeks
ginger
snap peas (these are good)
potatoes
green beans

When I met with a nutritionist yesterday, I told her that I'm not good about eating veggies b/c I don't like them. After discussing my likes and dislikes she said "You DO like veggies, look at all the vegetables you like!" I just need to be better about eating those I do like. Something is better than nothing.

Also, cucumber is missing from the list.

Butter beans. A better version of lima beans popular in the south. They are terrific!
