My dislikes rotate. LOL

I can eat asparagus for a week straight and then all of a sudden dislike it. I'm weird like that. ROFL!!!

I have never liked broccoli and never will. I dislike beans as well. I can live on asparagus and seaweed.

Veggies? Red beets. Any beets. Can't even attempt to put one in my mouth. My gag reflex will go off. Otherwise, I can't think of any I dislike.

I can't stand carrots... unless they're cooked really well and are part of a soup/broth where the taste is disguised. Same with celery! I can't eat raw veggies at ALL. I tried radishes, turnips and beets a long time ago and wasn't a fan, but not sure how I'd feel about them these days. I wouldn't even know what to do with them, so it's unlikely I'll even find out... I don't care for green beans, but I'll eat them if I have to.

There's another one for me. Thanks, Stephanie. I like raw carrots, can't stand them cooked.

The only vege I hate is this type of cucumber. I cannot even swallow it, my gag reflex goes off. The werid thing is I remember going to my aunties for dinner when I was a little girl and she put it on my plate and I gagged at dinner. Twentyfive years later I go to her place for dinner again (in New Zealand) and she serves it up and I gagged and almost vomited. It's a kiwi cucumber because I can eat the aussie one....:confused:

My red beet thing comes from a high school crash diet where I had to eat hot dogs and red beets and nothing else. It's amazing, the stupid things we do before we find the enlightenment of this lifestyle.

I love beetroot, in fact I always have to have it in my fish burgers here.
And yes GM, it's amazing how bad experiences can turn you off a food for life.

You should have died from O/D'ing on red dye alone!

I hate beets as well, have never tasted another vegetable I didn't like though.

I am even one of the weirdos who like cooked carrots better than raw

I tried lots of stupid things, including the cabbage soup diet (I only made it to day 2, LOL). Funny how the only thing that worked was when I became educated about diet, nutrition and lifting... :rolleyes: Of course that isn't the answer most people want to hear though.

The answer most want to hear your dead on is not that.
Like a Q.A we dont like is how much can you lift? lol:eek:

There isn't dye in beets, it is a naturally occurring pigment.

I love all veggies.

Have any of you had borscht? You would LOVE beets then.

I make this great raw beetroot and carrot salad that is also fantastic at converting the haters.

You name the diet, I've tried it. I spent 20 yrs looking for the easy, fast way to lose weight. It was only giving up to the "eat right and exercise" mantra that made it happen.

Omg, I love borscht and in fact I used to cook it all the time when I lived in a much cooler climate.

Oh yeah, mushrooms. I hate those... ick!

GM - I hear ya, but at least you finally found it. I'd much rather be on this side of the fence than how I used to be.

The best is when someone says they're "too busy" to get to the gym or they "can't" give up eating a certain food/snack/etc. I used to say that, but I now know it's a BS excuse because if you REALLY want to succeed, you make it work! :)

I usually enjoy veggies. However, the final week of asparagus can be tough!:(

I love my veggies. I dont broccoli or beets because of what they do to me, and I minimize the onion intake een though I like them. Never tried a lot of other veggies, though. Had an ex prepare me some asparagus in some sort of butter sauce and I could not get enough of them. But then again she could make old tire rubber taste good.

I've been to that bird preserve in Kauai, random but true. I love all vegetables...even beets, cooked, raw, pickled.

x2- mushrooms gross me out! I also am not a fan of lima beans or brussel sprouts. But I love asparagus, green beans, peas, broccoli, spinach.... yum yum yum. I also get in the mood for a really good salad sometimes... with tomato, onion, carrot, etc...

I love asparagus but at like $4 lb. you can go broke real fast. I quickly learned to love green beans and broccoli too!

Veggies:
I won't eat lima beans or butter beans.

Fruits:
Avocados make me instantly gag - no guacamole for me.
Cantaloupe.

All other veggies are fair game. :)

ASS-paragus. Have to blend it with a TBSP of EVOO and 2 TBSP of Franks RedHot to mask the taste. Just something about it gives me an instant gag reflex.

cooked beets and kale
I had to eat them when I was little. I didn't like them then and still don't.
