    It's funny how our maturing taste affect our menus.

    I used to hate Tea, but I love it now and it is a very healthy drink too. I am also a new found fan of

    broccoli
    zucchini
    and curry seasoning, mmmm, love chicken curry now, used to hate it.
    Anyway, simple thread, participate if it suits you.

    I was a weird kid. I used to be addicted to mushrooms when up until I was seven... then I just couldnt stand the taste of them. Turned 17 and rediscovered my love for the fungi.
    ITS SO GOOD!

    Definitely broccoli. It still smells like shit when it's steamed but I like the taste now.

    I've also had the reverse happen. I had not eaten a fast food burger in over a year and finally decided to have a BK whopper last month. Use to love them but after one bite I was done. Tasted horrible. I'll never eat it again.

    chocolate.

    oh wait, i've always loved chocolate.

    but seriously... spinach has grown on me, as has brocoli, though i don't LOVE them. i like raw baby spinach alot, but i still have to have broccoli with something else, even if it's just salt/olive oil/vinegar. steamed to mush and i can't tolerate it, and raw it tears my insides apart. so if it's steamed just a tad and has something to tone down the broccoli-ness of it, i can manage to not vomit. the same is definitely not true of cauliflower - i've always despised it. and beets too. GROSS!

    GuiltyGear, thanks for this !!! its good not to have another topic to argue about. LOL !!!! (maybe I should take a lesson from you eh ? )>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Well I used to dispise brussel sprouts and cauliflower, they smelled like the sewer had backed up while cooking, but now I like them both. I still cannot stand beets or liver though, they both turn my stomach, just the thought of what function the liver has ends it for me !!!!

    Oatmeal. Used to really hate it as a kid. Matter of fact, my dad was a horse trainer, so it was just horse food for me.

    None. Once I hate something, (food or human), it stays hated.
    Always hated grapes. Didn't try them for almost 20 years. Tried them last summer. Still detest them.
    Cheers,
    Keith

    Beans (I only used to eat green beans, now I like 'em all)
    Strawberries and Blueberries
    Beets (well made in salads now)
    I think most people disliked Brussels Sprouts, but now that I've actually had them made properly in good restaurants, they can be quite good!

    For years I thought asparagus was God's personal torture device for me.

    Like many children, I was very texture-oriented. I hated anything mushy, which is a big problem in a southern working-class house because beans and rice is a staple dish, since it's a cheap form of protein and carbs when you can't afford a lot of meat. I hated the way beans popped/squished apart when I bit them. I always imagined that's what it would feel like to bite into a cockroach, and I would spend ten minutes picking all the beans out of my bowl of chili, or at breakfast picking the raisins out of the Raisin Bran.

    Now I love beans and lentils and all legumes. I think Spinach is one of the best and most versatile foods ever - it goes in sandwiches, omelettes, salads, couscous, sometimes even in protein shakes/smoothies for that "mean green" flavor, or you can just eat a handful of leaves as a tasty snack.


    But I still prefer not to eat raisins, and I definitely still think cantalope smells (and tastes) like mildewed socks. icon_sad.gif

    Hey same here about the mushy stuff. I use to hate all cooked veggies because of that. I still am not a fan of cooked/steamed carrots but I like them raw.
