Foods you wish you could enjoy!
A while back I started a thread called Foods you wouldn't touch with a 10 foot pole that you now enjoy eating.
How about those fruits and vegetables you still have not been able to get to love?
For me -
Tomatoes by themselves.
Raspberries by themselves.
Which ones do you wish you could really love?
Raw Step by Step
"We can do anything we want to do if we stick with it long enough." Helen Keller
Avocados - like them in dressings or blended into something, but not by themselves
Mushrooms - The stuffed portobellos, the pesto stuffed mushrooms, Honeybeejoy's fajitas...all sound and look so good! It seems so many recipes use them but I just canNOT get over the fact that they're...mushrooms and/or a fungus (*jitters*)
Young Thai coconut and the water/milk inside
Peppers plain (red, orange, yellow variety) - love 'em IN stuff, but not alone
Rasberries alone (my daughter LOVES them...too tart and seedy for me)
I'm sure there are others, but these are off the top of my head
Spinach - gotta be in a smoothie
Celery - gonna get some almond butter to put on it
Zucchini and cauliflower - not sure what to do about them...
I love my kitties: Sam, Simba, Sinatra, Smash, Frick, and Frack
The water inside the coconuts is weird to me. I try to convinve myself it is a tasty treat... but nope. I can't do it. I LOVE it mixed in my smoothies though!
Apricots, Nectarines and Pears (by themselves) don't really do anything for me.
chard-it's so pretty! but it tastes like dirt to me
I do wish I liked more greens plain too
Sharon, how did these fresh figs smell? they have to smell and taste a bit like
vanilla. I did eat a very good one today and can't forget it.
But I also used to try them and did eat bad tasting ones, I think the most
figs sold are bad quality, so many people dislike them
Although lovers be lost love shall not (Dylan Thomas)
they all make me shudder
Durians! I don't like 'em...
the dark leafy greens, I love spinach by itself but anything else needs to be blended
celery (again, I love it juiced with something)
papayas. Definite absolute yuck lol

Incurable means curable within.
Radishes are the only food I can think of that I really don't care for. Everything else I like. Figs are my favorite. I've probably had about ten pounds of fresh figs in the past couple weeks. I was going through a phase where that was just about all I was eating. I would eat two or three pounds in a day!
