    I don't actually know anyone who doesn't like spinach. Seems to me to be a leftover trope from the days when everything was canned or boiled to death.

    Dr. Mrs. can't stand it but I think you are also right in general. Of all the foods ruined by mid-century modern American food prep, spinach might have been the most extreme. My mother prepared it that way and I loathed it. I only discovered that I actually liked spinach later when I ran into cromulent cooking.

    The greatest non-monetary disservice the boomers and gen-X did to millennials was to prepare sh-tty canned vegetables. Growing up with horrid vegetables turned me off from them. It took me 30-some years to like broccoli. 25-something to like onions. Still donít like mushrooms. I didnít like salads until I was in my 20s.

    Steak with roasted broccoli? Yes please. A nice midweek salad? Yum.

    The Greatests started it. Boomers started the recovery of vegetables, at least in fancy pants "get a rope" places.

    Lol, was going to say the same thing.

    To DXís point I never really cared for vegetables until I got older as well. We always had a garden so would have some decent, fresh vegetables, but there was a lot of canned and frozen stuff as well. I definitely prefer raw vegetables instead of cooked.

    Re: Calorie Counting

    With very few exceptions (beets, artichoke hearts), canned vegetables are virtually inedible - especially when it comes to green beans and peas. Frozen is acceptable (except for Brussels sprouts, which must be fresh), otherwise fresh is always best. Canned, I'd rather lick pennies.

    Frozen is good for corn and maybe a few others. Itís good for the times when you need something and need it quick. I usually keep a bag or two of frozen corn in my freezer.

    My parents won't eat Brussels sprouts in any form because their parents only boiled them. Still scarred from it.

    I don't mind canned green beans, but fresh and canned are almost incomparable. Different textures and taste. I'd almost consider them different vegetables entirely.

    Agreed, and canned green beans are the only kind I find edible. I don't make them because I assume they taste good because they have lost all nutritional value (c.f. carrots).

    Really? The Claim: Fresh Produce Has More Nutrients Than Canned

    I knew there was a reason I really didn't like you. Now I can justify sending you to the wall after the revolution.

    That's good to hear, but I'm pretty sure the Jacobins will get me at my first, "well, actually..."

    I figure I'm good for about the first 6 months of The Terror until they decide the intellectuals are counter-revolutionary because we're not applauding every execution wildly. That's usually how it goes.

    You've started cutting your caloric intake. Anytime you do that, your body will feel a sluggish until it accepts the new norm. It's the same as those people who go on Ketogenic or other low-carb diets. They all suffer the [insert diet name] flu.

    Game of thrones Sundayís with my friends are nearly over, thankfully.
    I did manage to cook meals to cover M-W before I head to DC.

    We always do takeout food for Sundayís to watch the show so we had chipotle with a Mexican coke, followed by a small blizzard. Coming off a sugar high.
