Foods That You Hated As A Kid But Now Love

It is funny how much different my taste buds are now that I am an adult. I swore as a kid I would never eat these foods!

1. Brussel Sprouts

These little guys were pure evil when you were 8, but now that you care about things like fiber and cholesterol they’re actually delicious. Also, you can make them into chips (aka the magical combination of healthy and delicious).

2. Pomegranate Seeds

Back when you thought that swallowing seeds would lead to sprouting a fruit in your stomach, these were a pain. Now the seeds add a delicious crunch and can really brighten up a salad.

3. Squash

As a kid, you probably hated squash’s gooey texture, but now that you’re older, things like squash blossoms are insanely delicious. And also spaghetti squash is a thing so that you can eat 10 bowls of “spaghetti” and not die from a carb overload.

4. Oatmeal

The gluey, heavy-as-a-brick stuff from your childhood winter breakfasts now seems like a filling and delicious way to start your morning. You now know that oatmeal can taste amazing.

5. Spinach

You couldn’t pay most of us to eat spinach when we were kids, but the addition of yummy things like garlic and olive oil (and maybe even bacon) has made it into a surprisingly versatile food. Plus, it’s a great addition to smoothies. Popeye would be proud.

6. Whole Wheat Bread

If you, like me, grew up without the wonders of white Wonder Bread, you were probably jealous of your friends’s sandwiches. Now, you realize how much fiber and nutrition whole grains provide and suddenly Sally’s mayo and sugar sandwich doesn’t sound so great.

7. Salmon

Fish was the worst when you just wanted some Hamburger Helper for dinner. Now, those omega-3s make eating salmon way less torturous.

8. Sparkling Water

You used to wonder why anyone would even drink something that didn’t contain massive amounts of sugar. Now, it’s a refreshing drink for when you’ve just read an article about how aspartame is going to kill us all.

9. Quinoa

You used to complain about quinoa’s almost soapy flavor (not to mention its mealy texture), but adding some unique flavor like apricots and pistachios make for a sophisticated experience.

10. Spices

Any of that weird coriander stuff that your mom used to try out was a nightmare in third grade, but now you can truly appreciate a good curry.
