Default confused about mixed veggies

Ok, I can't take broccoli anymore, I think the big bag of supposedly steamable broc I bought from Sam's (it was horrible) turned me off. So, I do like mixed vegetables, it has corn in it. On the WW site, points are assigned to it, and then it is listed as 0 points too. Not sure what to believe.

Corn is a starchy veggie so it's counted differently. Have you tried Cauliflower?

The corn needs to be counted, it's not a 0 point food. I would guesstimate how much corn is in each cup of veggies and go from there.

Ok, got you, I kind of thought so. Love the mixed veggies though. I am like a 2 y/o, not much for vegetables really, just basics. I'm still afraid to try beets. Not one for fruits either, banana and apple slices and that is about it. My palate needs to grow up!

One of my favorite veggies is the asparagus from Target. Anyone tried it.
