I have NEVER ate fruit before. Besides baby food. 

Ever.

Not even a banana. 

It just was never in the house, and i always heard my parents talk about how gross it was so i would never eat it at friends houses.

Peaches were "slimey goldfish"

and 

Carrots were "tree bark" (yes i know carrots are veggies)


tonight, hubby convinced me to eat a thing of pear halves, they were in light syrup (whatever that means) they were actually pretty good.

besides corn and peas ive never ate veggies either. 

that can be tomarrows misson. 

anybody else not like fruits or veggies?


i forgot about this post, but since someone replied to it and bumped it up i figured i should update. 

since i posted this, i've tried a bunch of fruit and veggies.

Apples / Pears / Peaches -Love. I'm actually eating an apple as i type this.

Carrots and Celery - No. I tried one of each, and i can't do it. They are discusting. 

Broccoli - Not a fan, but i've learned to stop picking out the broccoli in chicken alfredo

Lemon / Limes - No on lemons but limes are pretty good

Tomatoes - there okay on sandwitches.

Mangos- my new chocolate! i could eat them all day


im glad i tried them, i wish i would have done it before

and while i was trying them, i let my 10 month old and she loves them too (minus the lemon)

OMG NOOOOOOOOOOO I eat more veggies than meat. Try fresh fruit. Apples, oranges, pears, grapes...

Steaming vegetables can be excellent too! Broccoli with cheese is really good, fresh spinach mixed with romaine lettuce, some shredded carrots, cherry tomatoes, and your favorite dressing, you can add bacon bits, chicken, steak, cheese, croutons, and other seasoning to a salad too. 

I used to eat a lot of meat and when I switched over to mostly vegetables (because of my health conscience daughter) I started feeling a lot better, my complexion was clearer, my hair shinier, I wasn't as tired, I didn't have bowel problems, I haven't had kidney stones, I don't get sick nearly as often as I used too!

Try those veggies and fruits momma, it will make a difference!

I can't imagine not ever eating fruit and veggies.  They have always been a HUGE part of my life and diet.

Good for you for breaking out of your upbringing. Your kids will thank you for modeling healthy eating! Try eating a fresh pear or apple. So refreshing and delicious!

I was raised on canned veg and it took me a long time to get used to eating things like fresh green beans. I'd only ever had asparagus steamed until it was mushy, so I hated it. Omg. I could eat grilled asparagus every day now!

So proud of you!

Actually, depending on my migraines, I can't handle veggies or fruits. Its the texture.

But if I'm not feeling sick, I love them. I eat a ton of raw or steamed veggies.

I grew up on meat and cheese.

Very unhealthy diet but when you were raised that way its hard to change.

i'm trying tho.
