A St. Patrick's Day post about Best and Worst Green Foods made me ponder green foods throughout my life. My mom never met a veggie she didn't abuse - overcooked or canned was my introduction to all veggies. I was not a fan. And only adults were served salad - what was that all about?
Now, I go out of my way to make veggies as tasty and visually appealing as possible - those greenies are just so darn healthy.
How about you? Were green veggies introduced to you as a kid? Which ones did you love? Hate? What about your kids?
