Default Please help me with vegetables!!

okay well, to start off, i just dont like vegetables as much as i should. seriously. haha. my mom tries to get me to eat the but they are only a COUPLE that i will eat. i like salad, carrots, tomatoes (wether its a fruit or not...) cabbage, sometimes peas, maybe brocolli, but i really dont like it (unless its in Panda Express LOL)
so yeahh please help! is there a way i can enjoy eating dark green vegetables without getting upset that i have to eat them?
like a recipe or something?

my mom usally puts a combo of vegetables and some noodles with a sauce in it, but if i have to eat that everyday, i get bored. help!

We eat a lot of spinach in our house, whether it's mixed with romaine in a salad, or chopped up and added to meals. I also blend it into my fruit smoothies and it really doesn't change the taste much.

I'm not much of a veggie person, and I still can't eat them cooked. I have forced myself to try more vegetables to my diet, and you really can acquire a taste for them. I couldn't stand broccoli a year ago, and now I eat it all the time! Just try preparing them in different ways until you find what you like... raw, steamed, grilled w olive oil. Try the ones you don't like a few times before you give up on them, even if it's only added as an ingredient to a main dish. That's how broccoli grew on me.

Carrots can be chopped/shredded and mixed into a lot of things as well. I make my salads on a bed of baby spinach instead of lettuce. Frozen and fresh veggies taste much better than canned ones. Stirfry is a great way to eat veggies, there's edamame (soy beans), bok choi (Chinese cabbage, kind of a half cabbage/half celery with a mild flavor), broccoli, carrots, snap peas aka pea pods, cauliflower, green beans, baby corn, even spinach can be thrown in a stirfry. All kinds of peppers too, but I don't eat peppers, they do unkind things to my intestines . Add a little canned broth and cornstarch to make a light sauce, very healthy. You can add whatever lean meat you like or even tofu if you're brave.
