It's funny how taste buds change. When I was a kid, I hated tomato and vegetable juice (and a lot of other things I eat now.) I'd never quite managed to shake the idea that vegetable juice was vile until a couple weeks ago, when people posting about having it as part of their diet made me decide that it was time to give it another try, since it'd be an easy way to get some vegetables into my diet. And, um, I think I have a new food addiction. At least it's no more expensive than my former diet Coke addiction, and considerably better for me.
However, I am never going to like beans. Except for hummus. And edamame.
