Vegetables are Tolerable to Me Now

"Eat your vegetables so you can grow up to be big and strong."

How many times have we heard that one? When you were a kid, odds are you hated veggies with a passion. Whenever they were on my plate, they would be the only food that remained on my plate. Though I can recall one time where my mom really wanted me to finish the green food that I'd hoped I wouldn't have to eat, for the most part, my parents never really forced veggies on me.

I never thought I'd warm up to them, but I find eating vegetables has become easier over the years. I'm not saying I load my plate up with them or I eat them on a daily basis (because I don't), but whenever they are an option, I have been eating them.

Green beans, one of the my previously most despised veggies are now tolerable to me. I can eat greens pretty easily now, too. Broccoli, however, must have cheese on it or I'm not touching that it. Period. I'm still not fond of brussels sprouts either.  Nearly anything else I'm fine with.
