I Hate Vegetables

Image via Wikipedia
I hate vegetables. It took me years to eat a decent salad, but even then it has to be loaded with a creamy dressing like ranch or blue cheese. I eat them anyway, because I figure that veggies coated with lite ranch dressing (or fat-free dressing when I can find it) are better than no veggies at all. On the plus side, the salads tend to be somewhat healthy, with green leaf lettuce, red leaf lettuce, raw spinach, shredded carrots, radishes, and red cabbage. I'll usually throw in other things like cucumber bits or baby greens if I have them. Sometimes I'll add a bit of shredded cheese or croutons, but I've nearly eliminated the croutons.

They look so good, don't they? All those colors and all that vibrancy just draws you. But the taste! Even a tiny bite of some of those things makes me want to gag.

I just don't like vegetables, and this is one battle my inner brat is winning. I know I need to eat them. I just can't figure out how to actually like eating them. And if I don't like them, how will I eat them for the rest of my life? I don't even like potatoes or corn unless they are loaded with fat (butter, oil, or gravy).

If you have any secrets to share, please do! I want to like vegetables so I can enjoy a healthier lifestyle.
