I've always liked most vegetables, but can't say that I have an aversion to fattening foods. Rather, I like vegetables, because I like and will eat just about anything, and I'd rather have an unpleasant flavor experience than a boring one.
I have an almost compulsive drive to taste "new" foods. It may be genetic, because I'm adopted and no one in my adoptive family is so obsessed with food or novelty.
It's not just food either, I bore easily and always want to try new things. Hubby teases that I want to try everything.
