I Hate Cabbage!

Urggghhh the smell of boiled cabbage, the taste, the texture of raw cabbage…. Absolutely hate all forms and manifestations of cabbage. Might have something to do with the ‘cabbage soup’ my mum used to make and have us drink/eat because it’s ‘good for you’ (don’t ask, she had a lot of strange recipes). Anyway, whatever the reason you couldn’t pay me enough AIG retention bonus to touch the stuff. And I don’t much care for cauliflower or brussels sprouts (yet another type of cabbage!) either. However, I’m totally committed to eating healthy now so what’s an honest ‘gross-vegetable-hating’ gal to do? Turns out, the answer is really easy – find vegetables I love and load up on them! I’m talking broccoli, peas, carrots, string beans, okra, collard greens, spinach in any form (steamed, stewed, raw, nuked, dipped, moussed, quiched, basically I’m yet to find a ‘non-yummy’ spinach recipe). So that’s my plan, eat good food that I love not just because it’s ‘good for you’ and stay well away from ‘good for you’ food that I abhor. Figure I stand a better chance of keeping the diet changes permanent that way. What do you think?

    Well said! I concur with you, if I were to go on a diet or start eating veggies which I cannot stand it will put me off the plan in a very short time. I think it is a great idea to stick to the plan you suggested.

    That is so true! It’s much better to just enjoy the veggies you do like than to force yourself to eat the ones you abhore 🙂

    I agree with the premise completely i.e. eat what you like but ease up on the quantity and of course keep active as much as possible! btw, I like cabbage but cooked ‘indian style’ which I’m not sure is ‘good for you’ 🙂
