Texture and veggies plus 11 Surprisingly Healthy Recipes for picky eaters

idontwanna

Have you ever heard any one say they don’t like a certain food because of the texture? Maybe you’re the one giving that excuse.

All I hear when I hear that is a 4-year-old saying “I don’t wanna”

Not because they do not have the right to genuinely dislike something but because there are so many ways to cook now a days. You most likely just don’t like the food cooked the way you tried it.

A lot of people are traumatized because they were forced to eat soggy over boiled broccoli when they were younger by their mothers. So they say they hate broccoli because of the texture. Hmmm hello? Who wouldn’t? Lol
What kind of sense is that? There are so many ways to cook foods these days that is just an excuse.

If you don’t like it boiled, try it raw, baked, grilled, sautéed or stemmed. just FYI they all have different textures. You can also put your favorite seasonings, sauces or oils on them after they cook to enhance the flavor.

I dare you to try a food you don’t like cooked differently then you have ever tried.

Below are a few links to recipes that I am sure will make you rethink some of the most commonly hated vegetables.
