I have loved vegetables all of my life. They are just so delicious and refreshing. I also like you don't like artchokes or mushrooms. I do love brussel sprots,tomatoes, cucumbers, celery, broccoli, carrots, peas, corn, stringbeans, pototoes and sweet potatoes. I try to have at least three veggies and three fruits a day because I love them but also to maintain good health.

Im afraid I did not like many things to eat when I was a child. But I started to like themwhen I was around 11 years old and I have´t stopped in over 50 years. Now to cook and veggies add SO MUCH to any dish. Besides, you can make less expensive dishes if you add some veggies. Take care!

I have always liked veggies. I have eaten them all my life. My grandmother's & mother always cooked them so it's always just been a way of life w/me. I'm so glad they are coming in season here. We have a nice farmer's market open in the summer & i love to go there & get freash things.

We had a lot of cooked vegetables growing up - but I can't say it was a large variety of them. My mom cooked them pretty much the same every time, so it was probably more that I got bored with them. Being older and having my own kids, I so appreciate vegetables much more than I did when I was a kid. And I try to keep a variety in our menu so we don't get tired of the same ol' thing. Currently I have an appreciation for RAW vegetables - crunch crunch and yum! Oh - I do like artichokes and mushrooms - haven't really tried brussel sprouts believe it or not!

Hi Jeanii and welcome to mylot! When I was a child I liked few veggies. I remember I liked string beans, corn on the cob and tomatos. It was much later when I started to like other veggies. Now I love them all and I know many ways of cooking them. I´m eating less meat although I´m not a vegetarian. That way I can have a natural source of vitamins and minerals.

My parents tell me that when I was a toddler, pretty young, that I liked vegetables. Then when I got a bit older I HATED them. It wasn't until I became an adult that I started eating vegetables on my own again. There's still that I don't like. But I've learned to expand my palate and learned how to prepare veggies in ways that make them yummier to me.

No,absolutely not.. I used to hate all kinds of vegetables except tomatoes and potatoes.I was not at all a vegetable lover and I often get scolded from my mom for not eating vegetables. But now,I like most of the vegetables except brinjal.

We lived on a farm with a large garden. We ate a lot of vegetables and canned many. I had not tried brussel sprouts until this winter, when i bought a bag of frozen sprouts and put 2-3 in my soup. It was good, like a small amount of cabbage for just a little different taste. I do not like green fried tomatoes, but i do like fried summer squash.
