The thing is, I feel as if I am the only person I know
that doesn't like vegetables. Heck, J LOVES green beans and brussels sprouts (<--major ew!). I am in this club all by my lonesome, with no support group to get me on the veggie band wagon.
I don't particularly like vegetables. It's not for lack of trying them either. I get ambitious and at least make the effort to like them. I think they are gross. I will eat carrots raw and radishes every now and then, but for the most part, real veggies are not my thing. I wish they were though. I want to feel like a grown up too! I just don't like vegetables. at. all.
So imagine my mother's surprise when she received this text last night:
"I ate green beans"
The replying text from her was:
"Was it a dare?"
No it wasn't a dare, thank you very much. And to answer your other question, I actually did eat them. They weren't very good but it was tolerable. I would never say "MMMM let's make green beans tonight with dinner" but I am attempting to eat healthy. I try vegetables at least every few months to see if maybe my taste buds changed or my mind can override my taste. So far I have not been successful,but like I said, at least the effort is being made.
