My three year old niece will eat anything. Brussel sprouts, green beans, peas. I think she'd even eat lint if you put cheese on it.

But she will not eat brocolli. She tried once, because she also thought she would eat anything. It came right back up again.

Regurgitated brocolli is not a pleasant site.

I was just trying to remember if it was George Bush Sr. or George W that said he hates broccoli. I think it must have been George W because I remember someone saying that if Iraq's chief export was broccoli we wouldn't have invaded Iraq.

Have to admit it's probably my least favorite veg. I still eat it, but it's too boring just steamed. It's gotta be in a stir-fry or something. OMG! now I'm talking about broccoli. We must really be bored today. lol

No, that was George Sr. Here's the quote in full:

"I do not like broccoli and I havenít liked it since I was a little kid and my mother made me eat it. And Iím President of the United States and Iím not going to eat any more broccoli. Now look, this is the last statement Iím going to have on broccoli. There are truckloads of broccoli at this very minute descending on Washington. My family is divided. For the broccoli vote out there: Barbara loves broccoli. She has tried to make me eat it. She eats it all the time herself. So she can go out and meet the caravan of broccoli thatís coming in."

I love broccoli now. It is one of the most nutritious of vegetables.

But as a kid I hated it. My mom would serve things I didn't like very much. I hated coliflower, cabbage, rutabagas, turnips, lentils.

I refused to eat grapefruit unless it was pink. Once when I was 8 years old, my mom served me a half grapefruit that wasn't pink. I insisted that I wouldn't eat it unless it was pink. She told me to hide my eyes and count to 10. When I looked up the grapefruit was pink! I ate it and enjoyed it.

She kept a box of assorted food coloring in her cupboard.

I hate it too. One of the many vegetables I'd hide in my napkin so my Mom would think I ate it.

Today though, I'll eat it raw.
