VEGGIES or FRUITS? & the VEGGIES my friends love and hate!
Blog Posted:3/2/2013 1:24:00 PM
I got to thinking after my last blog. We are all so different. I was raised up on canned corn, green beans and peas. So I cannot stand the taste of fresh green beans or frozen peas. Corn is the only one i can eat fresh , canned or right off the cob!!
You guys were giving me nice recipes and telling me to cook the collard greens, etc, but BELIEVE ME, that would NOT help me!! I have tried cooked spinach, asparagus, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage, etc etc. I just hate the taste of them all!!! I don't even like cooked carrots. And the only way I can eat broccoli is if it is chopped up in small pieces and floating inside a nice creamy cheese soup or something!!
I like a fresh salad with different kinds of lettuce, celery, raw carrots and spinach leaves, onions, cucumber, cilantro, and peppers. Anything else, I probably won't like it, unless it is something like parsnips, squash or potatoes, those are ones I love to eat baked, boiled or fried!
Fruits are ok, but not something I plan my day around. I just try to get in at least one a day with my forced 3 or 4 veggie servings! I just buy the ones I like when they are in season (grapes, pineapple, apples, berries and melon). How about you guys?
WHICH DO YOU TRY TO EAT MORE OF EACH DAY?
FRUITS OR VEGGIES?
