rhiannon.gale Posted June 8, 2015 Share Posted June 8, 2015 Hello all! This is really embarrasing, but I can't be the only one. Vegetables kind of scare me. Let me give you some back story. Both of my parents are extremely picky eaters. They think they aren't, but if you mention something like strawberries or cabbage, it is an automatic "EW that's so nasty! I would never eat that!" Seriously. And they wonder why my brother and I don't have wider taste preferences. So, having only grown up with bananas, apples, green beans, corn, and potatoes, I'm new the whole vegetable thing. And it really scares me sometimes. I know that you are supposed to eat A LOT of vegetables on the Whole 30, and to get the best results possible and to do what's best for my body, I'd really like to branch out. In my adult life (currently 23) I have tried new fruits and vegetable in an attempt to broaden my tastes. This has been somewhat successful. However, I still need a little help. If anything, sneaking in vegetables would be helpful. I can eat nearly anything in a soup, and try to add things in there. I also have heard that you shouldn't give up on something until you find the right recipe. So please help! =) To give you an idea of what I'm working with, I'll share my likes, dislikes, and unknowns. Likes- Lettuce, Tomato, Cucumbers, Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Green Beans, Corn, Beans (I know, not compliant, but otherwise, I love them), radishes, carrots, and still working on onions. Definite dislikes- Mushrooms, Broccoli in most cases, Bell Peppers in most cases, wilted anything (ie: spinach), raw celery Unknown- Cabbage, brussel sprouts, beets, rhubarb, eggplant, cauliflower, turnip, collard greens, asparagus, artichoke, , I've been experimenting with zucchini and squash lately. Not sure about them. Anyway, thank you for letting me share and for anything you can help me with. Maybe some awesome recipes, or words of encouragement? I really want to expand my horizons! It's just a little scary! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
