When I was young, I hated veggies. Green beans had to have french dressing before I could eat them. Lima beans and black-eyed peas needed to be doused in ketchup. Greens? The horror!
Now I love green beans, especially if they are lightly steamed with cherry tomatoes and a touch of garlic. Greens? Love them. I still can't eat lima beans or black-eyed peas,the thought still makes me gag, but I eat a lot more veggies without masking the taste, including brussel sprouts.
