Leafy greens are among the vegetable richest in vitamins, minerals, cancer-fighting agents, and fiber.  However, some people seldom or almost never include such vegetables in their diet because of the taste.  Are you someone who find leafy greens, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts too bitter to enjoy?  Well it may be due to your genes.  Researchers who study taste have found that some people are very sensitive to the bitter essence of some foods due to a recessive gene. 

However, people with an inborn aversion don’t have to avoid these nutritious foods.  Cooking greens in light oil can remove the bitter taste.  Your Diet Center meal planner allows for all varieties of light vegetable oils.  Try oils such as olive, canola, or safflower.  Knowing what you can gain from a diet high in vegetables, you may want to try various cooking methods and recipes to include them in your meals.
