I will never be convinced that if a person dislikes, hates or loathes a food, that he or she can NEVER like the food.

Take Brussels Sprouts, they are literally hated by my son, yet this slaw, he eats in hefty amounts. So, you take all the yummies, like maple syrup, cheese, cranberries,etc, and you flavor the raw uncooked, unsteamed veggies and the sweetness and crunch that bursts forth is amazing. It’s the kind of food you can eat as a main dish.

Brussels Sprouts are among the 10 foods that help us grow. They stimulate the human growth hormone as does broccoli, turnip, bok choy and okra (I think this knowledge helped  my son to eat more).
