    There aren't many non-starchy vegetables I like enough to consume regularly. Shame people don't think of starchy vegetables as real vegetables and then judge you for not liking cabbage.

    I feel about this the way I felt when my kids told me they didn't like brushing their teeth - "Get used to it. You're going to be doing it twice a day for the rest of your life."

    When my kids were little, they didn't like all veggies. They were served them anyway. No desserts unless they ate their lunch and dinner, which always included fruit and veggies. They complained at times, sure. Today? One of the first things my kids reach for when they come home is fruit and/or veggies. It's harder for them to afford now that they are on their own and I always have plenty.

    I canot eat raw brassicas (broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower). So I cook them. My youngest, who is 12, finally likes collards because my husband found a way to cook them (carmalized onions in butter, cider vinegar) that he likes.

    People, no need for psychology - roasted meats, chocolate and berries taste better.

    The American processed foods turns our appetites into babies. All that sweet, creamy, milky, mushy instant gratification.

    Cooked in delicious fat, I don't see how anyone could NOT eat their veggies.

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

    Try going "predator" for a while. No processed crap, just quality meat. Soon you'll CRAVE veg.

    My fiance didn't like:
    -mushrooms, fried them, he liked
    -broccoli, when topped with a fatty, salty sauce, he liked
    -chopped tomatoes, with egg, he sorta tolerates
    -swede, with pepper, he tolerates

    I didn't like:
    -brussel sprouts, was told Xena ate them, I liked
    -raw broccoli, with Paleo mayo, I like
    -onion, caramelized, I liked

    You get the idea. There's something for everyone. I'd choose a sweet potato with butter and salt over a chicken hind-quarter!

    Kochin, one probably shouldn't eat broccoli raw.

    It's actually fine for you raw, as long as you get it clean and chew it thouroughly. Cruciferous veg (broccoli, sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage, kale...) are all healthy raw and some nutrients are more accessible raw, provided your stomach acid is strong enough. Of course, other nutrients are more accessible cooked, so it's worth eating sometimes raw, sometimes cooked.

    I've eaten raw cauliflower and cabbage for a while, but wanted to try broccoli. Didn't mind the crown or leaves, but the stalk was vile. Then I realised: I usually eat cabbage or cauliflower stalk COATED in some form of home-made dressing. Tried that, it worked.
