Lolol yeah yeah, I'm sure that's it. OP is "allergic to vegetables". Still using the same lines you used as a child huh? If OP was "allergic" then this would be a completely different FML. "today, I ate those dried up things in the cup noodles because I'm allergic to real vegetables. FML"
I never understood why people do not like vegetables myself. I love eating them.
I think it also has to do with how they're prepared. Interestingly, though not surprisingly, people who don't eat vegetables don't know how to prepare them very well, further contributing to their overall dislike for them. Since all of us do need vegetables to be healthy, I think experimenting with recipes and perhaps tasting some dishes made by someone who's more experienced in the area might change their minds enough to include them in their diets more often.
I love vegetables any way they're cooked. I love raw, steamed, boiled, baked, broiled, sauteed, grilled, etc.. I love all the vegetables! I'm not vegetarian, but I, easily, could be. I like all the so-called 'nasty' veggies too! Brussel sprouts, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, etc.. The 'nastier' they are, the healthier they are for you! :)
I'm a "texturist." I CANNOT stand the texture of vegetables (most of them anyway; carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, celery, and every other type I've tried, except for the lettuces and cabbages). The only way I'll eat them is if they're cooked until they are mushy and placed in a chowder. The only vegetables I know I like is the tip of over-cooked asparagus and canned green beans.
I'll eat certain vegetables if they're smothered in cheese or cooked in butter and brown sugar. That masks the nasty vegetable taste and it's manageable then. Some veggies though aren't even good like that. Taste is a really weird thing for me. If it tastes bad enough (like raw or steamed veggies other than carrots) it'll make me throw up.
I hate veggies but I think most people hate them because as kids we grow up just not liking them and have that mindset that says *barf* so when older our brains are wired just to not like them automatically. Unless of course we smother and rape the veggie with sweet sugary yummy shit.
To me, ketchup is a vegetable. Beer has hops - that's a vegetable! Chocolate is made from cacao beans - VEGETABLE!!
