"I don't like vegetables"

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

My husband has always hated veggies. Always.

Since our daughter has started eating table food, though, I've been adding more and more fresh and frozen vegetables to our meals. To my surprise, it's been a rather painless process - my husband eats almost as much of the "good" stuff as I do.

I asked him about it last night, and this is what he said: growing up, vegetables with a meal were prepared by grabbing the can opener, dumping into a dish and hitting a button on the microwave.

Yuck, no wonder he didn't like veggies. And now I'm more optimistic than ever that our daughter will grow up with healthy role models and liking the same foods that just months ago, her daddy would scrape to the side.

Moral: preparation is key!

    Right? I've known all along that canned veggies are a totally different "thing" than the fresh stuff. Up until a few months ago, though, my husband wouldn't even try the veggies I'd make him, because he was convinced they'd be just like what he was used to growing up. Really makes ya think.

    Agreed. My mother and grandmother overcooked vegetables. I love salads and vegetables properly cooked and seasoned.

    Yes Veggies are so good when prepared right and yummy. I couldn't get through my day without my veggies

    A lot of us have bad memories of veggies, though mine pre-date microwaves. Selection, preparation and presentation are everything.
