When I was a kid,I remember my mom getting pissed off because I would not eat the vegetables on my plate. But as I grew up,I learned to eat some but not most of them...LOL...I know vegetables are supposed to be healthy food,but we have to admit it--some vegetables aren't very tasty and appealing to eat...So,are you a vegetable lover or not?

I guess I can say I don't like vegetables at all. I didn't eat any when I was a child, and there are extremely few that I eat now. Same thing with fruits and berries, it just doesn't taste good to me no matter what kind it is. I can force myself to eat just about any vegetables but I really don't like it and it's not something I do unless I really have to.

I don't exactly love them, but don't want to admit it because I feel a bit guilty about it. My mother used to get mad at me when I was a kid; she still does now that I am a grown up who refuses to eat vegetables. I console myself by saying that I will get the nutrients I miss by not eating vegetables by eating a lot of fruits, which I love. :)

It depends on which vegetables. There are some vegetable I love and others that I hate. I always really liked broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and brussel sprouts which are vegetables that lots of kids hated.

I love most vegetables, but there are a few that I still haven't developed a taste for. Brussel sprouts was one of my mom's favorite veggies, and she served them often, but I still don't like them. It may very well have something to do with the fact that she liked to serve them when she would fix liver, yuck. Just about everything else is good now that my taste buds have matured. :)

I remember eating pork liver and having spit it out again... I really don't like the taste of liver... LOL! Until now, I'm still kind of picky with some foods but I also try to experiment with my taste buds every once in a while...

Of course I am a vegetable lover most of the time. Even though whenever I visit any pizza hut I still insist to order a Veggie Lover which its ingredients are totally prepared from various types of vegetables. It is still so tasty even though without any meat in it.

I have to have veg with my diet I am on the Atkins and veg forms an important part of the diet I am on. I do love most veg and I also like soya and tofu. Vegetable protein like bean curd is lovely and ever so tasty.

Same here, when i was a kid i hate vegetables but when i grew up and learn the importance about the use of vegetables on our health i did learned to love it. Well i guess most of kids don't like it as we do when we are young but that well change in time.

I love vegetable and fruits. I am a vegetarian so I do not eat meat or meat products. When I was a kid, my mom used to put some chicken into my mouth but I would always cry and throw it out again....so I should say that I was born to be a vegetarian :)
