Do you think this is childish?

I have to hide vegetables from myself. There are very few vegetables that I like, so I cut them really tiny and put them in stuff. I make it small enough that I can't really taste it or pick it out. Like tonight I made meat loaf, I cut up onions and zuchini really small so they would blend in. For spaghetti sauce I puree oninon, peppers, and other stuff so it blends with the sauce. I justify this by saying "I know I need the veggies, but since I don't like them I'll just hide them from myself".

  • I do the same thing. There are some vegetables that I just can't eat "plain".

  • I don't like to bite into big pieces of onion, so I chop them up into small pieces. You still get the flavoring but you don't bite into it. I'd say what you're doing is a good idea.

  • Oh yeah, I don't care for some vegetables, but I know I need more of them, so V-8 juice is GOOD! I love the taste with a dash of tabasco and a dash of salt added.

  • My mom does this so my step dad will eat veggies! She does it with chicken and dumplings too.

  • Everyone does something that's childish. At least yours is productive and it makes the meatloaf tasty.

  • Not childish, lol. I'm glad you put forth that much effort to ensure you get vegetables. There are somethings I just can't make myself eat no matter what.
