I am not a fan of bitter lettuces. At all. But I've been trying my best to eat them because they're really good for you. After almost a week of traveling here and there for family things I landed back home, weary from the hectic days of travel. So I found some suitable leftovers, and made a plate of said greens. Then I added some sliced red onions, carrots and the magic ingredient that changed my view of these dark and bitter greens forever : parmesan cheese! Just a sliiiight sprinkle was enough to cut the bitterness in the greens, and my bitterness towards them. So much that I could (and did) eat two plates full on any given day.
Do any of you have the same problem adjusting to new, healthier foods? What are some foods that are acquired tastes for you, and how did you learn to love them?
