How can I eat more vegetables when I don't like the majority of them? in Food, Nutrition, and Diet Posted November 24, 2015 · Report reply So I grew up with a mom who is a very picky eater. As a result, I myself am quite the picky eater. I found that I had to tiny amounts and gradually increase. When I first moved out on my own, my plant diet was carrots, corn, celery, onions, garlic, potatoes, apples and bananas. I gradually started adding little nibbles of others and now I'm a fan of many. Having friends who are willing to let you try a little nibble off their plate also helps. As someone else said, different cultures prepare things vastly different and you may find that you like something just now how you know how to prepare it. I also found that I was reluctant to try things because I didn't want to waste money if I ordered something at a restaurant and hated it, and I feel super guilty about throwing out food.
