I’ve noticed that since I’ve become vegetarian, I am appreciating more and more things that I’ve “hated” my whole life. Like mushrooms—as recently as two weeks ago, the taste of mushrooms (all kinds) disgusted me. I’d try one and then pick the rest off of whatever I was eating. Then, out of nowhere, I had a portabella ‘shroom and I really liked it. I went back and tried another type of mushroom and liked that, too. Considering my lifelong distaste for mushrooms, I’m surprised the change-over happened so suddenly.
Other things I enjoy now that I didn’t before: eggplant and squash/zucchini. The real test will be if I start liking sweet potatoes or raw broccoli.
