I learned to eat a lot of new things in college and while I was living in Hawaii. Unfortunately, I still have a gag reflex to certain veggies. That does not make eating them fun – nor appropriate in public. I eat more veggies than I used to. I am happy with a salad. I cook with peppers and onion – even sometimes eat peppers raw. I can tolerate carrots. Corn I will eat if it is dry (juices in almost all veggies trigger the gag reflex – why?!). I have had good grilled asparagus but have not yet successfully made my own. I have been told I should try more grilled or broiled veggies. It just feels hard with so many other things I have to balance in my life. I just need a personal chef, right? ;-p

Don’t we all need our own chef. I know exactly what you mean, and have for over 20 years but can’t seem to find my ground. Good luck
