What food do you eat just because "it's good for you"?


I mean, you don't really like it much, but you eat it because you think it has some health benefit.

    Oatmeal can be boring. You might try stirring in some pumpkin puree, cinnamon and nutmeg (all good for you. too) and make it taste more like pumpkin pie. Keep the brown sugar.

    I get a bunch of small mild peppers-- red yellow and orange every couple of weeks, I chop them with green beans or zuchinni or into sauces and soups to make them look pretty. Colorful veggies have lots of nutrients.

    I'm not a big fan of grapefruit-- though the pink variety is a little milder-tasting. It also interferes with a lot of medications, my husband can't eat it, so I don't buy it.

    I developed a taste for asparagus; I like it now. I didn't think I liked Brussels sprouts, but once at a nice restaurant, they were the vegetable of the day,

    steamed, tender and tasty. Surprise! They have to be fresh and cooked right.

    Had to look up swede-- it is called rutabaga in the US. I don't think I've ever eaten it, but it seems similar to turnip which is also OK mashed with salt pepper and butter. Beets are fine, especially pickled, but they can be messy to prepare.

    I guess it could be spiced up with a tasty marinade,dressing, or seasoning. I'm thinking a spicy sweet Thai dipping sauce would be good.

    There are lots of good foods with calcium, but milk is an easy way to get it. Maybe some cookies would make it taste better?
