But I Don't Even Like Vegetables!

If you DON’T like vegetables, I wager you DO eat one or more of these regularly:

1. Refined sugars, including high fructose corn syrup

2. Carbonation

3. Artificial sweeteners

4. MSG

5. Caffeine or other stimulants

6. Animal foods (meat & dairy) in quantities higher than 25% of the diet

These six spoilers harm our innate appetite for natural plant foods. If you find the flavors, colors and textures of fruits, vegetables and legumes to be distasteful, challenge yourself to completely cut out one or more of these offenders for 3 days and satisfy your cravings with fresh foods from nature. I feel confident in promising that if you feed yourself nutrient-dense food every time you feel like munching, within a very short time, your tastes will change. The following tips may help:

· Substitute smoothies for sodas

· Trade fruit for desserts and treats

· Try veggie sticks instead of chips

· Load up on lemon water, not energy drinks

· Satisfy protein needs with nuts, seeds, greens and grains.

To your health and happiness,
