I have grown into eating more veggies..We picked alot of asparagus last night from the garden..and I am going to roast it..Thanks to the little gal who suggested roasting instead of boiling..That sounds just too good.
I am getting rid of..and have been relatively successful at it..white breads, pasta, desserts made with white flours and sugars..

I grew out of tomatoes at 35. I loved tomatoes and used to steal them off other peoples' plates. I still eat them but I don't crave them as I did as a kid.
I grew into avocados. We had a tree in our yard and I hated them, but at 20, suddenly I couldn't get enough. The house sold 2 years ago and I sure miss Dad's tree. Now I have to pay for them-it hurts.

Other foods I gave up because they weren't "good" for me ... if they were in front of me, I'd eat 'em, so I won't say I grew out of them

I hated ketchup and tomatoes as a kid, now as an adult, I still hate ketchup, but I love tomatoes. My favorite sandwich right now is turkey bacon, lettuce and tomato on toasted multigrain bread. NO Mayo. Delish!

I loved Tahiti Treat as well! Haven't even seen it for sale in years- I'd be scared to try it now. Cream soda was my back up favorite when places didn't have Tahiti Treat and it's way to sweet now.

Can't say I've really grown into any food- I really liked veggies as a kid (even brussel sprouts). The only foods I eat now that I didn't as a kid are ones that just weren't available in our small town. I love pomegranates now.

I don't know what happened but I don't like beets anymore! I can't understand it? (lol) I love artichokes and they are really good in my salad. I've also started gardening and I am growing a lot of my own vegetables and I am really excited.

I love asparagus!! I grew up with my mom boiling it and absolutely fell in love with it. I grew up and found out you can roast it. I will never boil it again! I absolutely LOVE it roasted with some EVOO, sea salt, fresh ground pepper, and some Parmesan sprinkled on top. Mmmm... yummy! I could eat that every day! emoticon

Oikos has been the best greek yogurt I have found. I tried the Light & Fit one, but I didn't care for the texture either. After I found the Oikos, I haven't wanted to try anything else.

4/27/13 6:31 A

I grew out of ice cream (never thought that would happen).... I'm sooooo into frozen yogurt now! Whenever I have a choice between the two, I choose frozen yogurt. Even the greek frozen yogurts are so delicious!

I grew out of marshmallow salad (eww how did I ever like that stuff?), bologna, processed white bread, sugary breakfast cereals, cool whip, snack cakes, most chocolate bars - especially Cadbury eggs and mr. noodles.

As a kid we ate diversely, so I had a taste for most things already. But I grew INTO kale, ginger root, bran cereal, cream of wheat, oatmeal, rye bread, marmalade, wild rice, and mango to name the ones that I can think of.

I will not crack this time!!

I've always liked all sorts of foods, but now I'm over 30 I really cannot stomach all the sugary junk I loved as a kid/teenager. Technically I 'grew into' macaroni and cheese, but only because I learned how to make it with actual whole-grain macaroni and healthy cheese.

I used to love french onion dip- now I really can't stand that it leaves a film on the roof of my mouth. Now if I have to have chips I will have roasted veggie Ritz with a tiny amount of sour cream and a HUGE amount of salsa. When I have this snack, I don't eat any bread, pasta for the rest of the day.

There are so many things on both sides of this list! In "my previous life" (LOL) I craved really intensely flavored foods. Chips - heavy on cheese, BBQ sauce, processed meats that tasted like ANYthing but meat...sodas, the sweeter and stronger the better! Now those flavors make me distinctly ill. Even just the scent of them, sometimes. I can no longer tolerate carbonation in any form, so that leaves out ANY soda- diet or otherwise. I do still like crackers, but they have to be very mild. I like a brand called "Ile de France." which are basically just little melba toasts. I like an organic variety of sesame wafers. I like the Wasa crackers, too... but I have to stringently limit any of these because we're not really permitted carbs in any quantity. I find I prefer the flavors of real, whole foods now. Anything with pumped-up tastes (like I used to live for!) now makes me queasy, if not outright sick. I find I need a lot more salt on this diet, but I've heard that from many others on the same type of plan. I will season with more pepper, too, which I never liked when I was young. Funny how tastes change. Is it just a process, or is it the reorientation to eating a new way? who knows.

I used to love ramen noodles growing up, now I can't stand them! If you eat the whole package it's over your daily allowance of sodium, yuck! I have started to like carrots, I used to hate them no matter what, but if I lightly cook them with some coconut oil they are delicious!

Tomato's and corn were my arch enemies as a child. I spent hours at the table because I wouldnt eat my corn. Now a dish of corn, tomatos, avacado and black beans with cilantro and lime is a serious FAVE!

As a kid I was an extremely fussy eater. I think the only vegetables I liked were spinach, corn, and canned peas--I loved their faintly metallic taste. (I also enjoyed going to the gas station to breathe in the lovely gasoline fumes, go figure!) Now I like almost all vegies, and except for tomatoes, and beets for salads, wouldn't touch a canned one; frozen are OK in winter, though. We were a meat and potatoes family and also ate a lot of seafood, but no foreign foods. Once I left home I discovered all sorts of cuisines and the adventure began!

I was surprised as I read some of the foods here. Things that the mere mention of could trigger a binge didn't bother me at all. That's progress!

Out: most of my salty-snack food cravings. I used to absolutely CRAVE salty snacks. Now I don't really keep them in the house.

Wish I'd grown out of: anything sweet. Kicking the sweet tooth is definitely a struggle.

It is funny how our taste buds change. I would buy imitation crab every so often and make crab rolls, crab salad, or just dip the crab in some tasty tarter sauce with a cracker. I cannot eat the stuff now, the last three times I tried it and in all different ways it just tasted yucky! I am not happy I have to drop that food. I will try it again next year and see what happens.

Oddly (or so I think) I didn't like bacon when I was a kid:-) BUT my mother didn't know that so every Sunday morning I would get my 2-piece allotment. I would then give those to the sibling that had been the nicest to me during the week. I'm pretty sure my mother didn't know all of this as I doubt she would have agreed with my personal Pavlov's experiment:-) There are many other things that fit the question. Broccoli I LOVE now but when I was young I would only eat carrots (raw), salads, corn on the cob and green beans. What a brat! LOL

I have a pretty long car ride home. I often found myself wanting to stop off at McDonalds and Wendy's on the way.....sure they have healthier alternatives...but that really isn't what I opted for....I want FRIES!!!! well I honestly can't remember the last time I stopped on the way home (sure it was a little over a month ago tho lol)....but it feels good to know that I packed extra fruit for the car ride home :) That is a huge step for me! I guess I finally want to see myself get to the end of this journey...Spark people makes you feel like you are not alone!

I have grown out of greasy fast foods and french fries. I have grown into the healthy sandwiches at Subway. We love their new chopped salads! I also love the fact that their nutritional information is online and I can easily calculate my portions. Normally I cook at home so our Subway sandwiches or salads are a once a month treat.
