I cannot stand them cooked. I can tolerate them raw

No matter how hard I try I cannot stand the taste of Cottage Cheese.

I can't eat (or be around) someone eating raw celery. Drives me crazy...the taste, the smell, the crunching...ugh. I don't like raw carrots either, but I'd eat a bushel of carrots before I ate one stalk of (yuck, I think I threw up a little) celery.

I'm with you on that one! I can tolerate baby carrots with salad dressing, but I really have to be in the mood for them. I do, however, like cooked/boiled/steamed carrots. They are really tasty with a few spritz of light butter spray and a drizzle of light maple syrup.

Oh my! I used to hate raw carrots, now I slice them in long strips and place in the juice from a empty jar of sweet pickles or banana peppers. The flavoring from the brine helps a lot.

I love raw carrots--in fact, it is the only way that I eat them! It's great that we have choices, isn't it!

I'm right there with you on the carrots! I love them steamed or roasted but raw no way. I feel the same about celery too.

I can't bear the texture of mushrooms! But we try, and that counts for something right?!

At least you gave them a try! As one of my friends often says, it would be a pretty dull world if we all liked the same things.

I just can't. No matter what I do, no matter how hard I try, I just...cannot...

enjoy the taste of raw carrots.


Hope this light humor makes your hard work a little more bearable :)
