I used to dislike asparagus when I was growing up, because my mom only ever served it out of a can (slimy and brownish-green is not terribly appetizing!) but I'm really glad I gave it another try as an adult. Fresh asparagus is one of the go-to dinner sides at my house, and my whole family enjoys it. We've grilled it, steamed it, sauteed it... and it's always delicious!

Another once-under-appreciated veggie is spinach. My mom had a thing for canned food, I guess... or maybe it's just expensive to afford fresh produce for a family of 6! I tried fresh spinach for the first time a few years ago, and now it seems like I always keep a box in my fridge. Baby spinach makes such a nice salad (with strawberries, a few sunflower seeds, and some raspberry vinaigrette, yummy!) and it goes great with pasta, or in a sandwich.

Oh, I have not been eating my veggies lately. Asparagus is great though. I usually steam them and add a little parmesan cheese on top. But I will try roasting them, sounds yummy. My favorite way of eating veggies is salad. I make a homemade dressing with flax seed oil, vinegar, and mrs dash for seasoning. Now I'm craving my veggies...that's a good thing!

Ooh, I love asparagus. My spouse hates it, so I only have it when I eat out. :o)

I am not sure if color counts as new, but I did recently buy a bunch of multicolored carrots: yellow, orange, red, and purple. They were so pretty, and made a beautiful soup!

Asparagus is my new favorite since last year, I love buying five bundles at a time so they last the week. If the smell isn't wretched when I go to the bathrrom, then I'm not eating enough.
