I used to sneak butter snacks too as a kid. It feels good to indulge that inner kid again. My Mom was a good cook and managed to make veggies palatable with lots of butter and seasonings and cheese, etc. but now I say pass the butter and cheese and hold the broccoli.
Squash is good especially the winter squashes like butternut (with a name like that it has to be good.) Some root veggies are pretty good like parsnips when you add lots of coconut oil. Plain though?
That's funny about kale. It's bitter, tough, and scratchy. I can't imagine the Grok family eating that stuff unless they were facing starvation.
Thank you for the condolences, Joanie. Everyone here has been very supportive through this difficult time in my life and it has helped a lot.
