Fried Eggs
Fried Eggs
Scrambled was the only way you would eat eggs as a kid, but then you finally realized the true powers of the sunny-side up egg.
Liver
Liver
The smell of liver and the way it tasted made you feel like you were being punished. Little did you know, you couldn't wait to eat more once you aged a few years.
Whole-Grain Bread
Whole-Grain Bread
Nothing could compare to your fluffy white bread. But you soon noticed which one was the king of all breads (not to mention WAY better for you, too).
Brussels Sprouts
Brussels Sprouts
You used to find ways to sneakily dispose of brussels sprouts at the dinner table. Now you search for any way to incorporate them into your meals.
Tomatoes
Tomatoes
If the texture didn't turn you away, then the smell might have. Now, you can't eat a salad that doesn't include tomatoes.
Spinach
Spinach
Not even Popeye himself could get you to touch spinach with a 10-foot pole. But when you finally got older, your tastebuds did a complete 180.
Olives
Olives
You would always pick them off of your pizza growing up. Now, you throw them in salads, leave them on the pizza and even eat them plain!
Broccoli
Broccoli
Broccoli was King of the Hated Veggies during your childhood. Thankfully, those days are behind you now and you recognize how amazing the green superfood really is.
Dark Chocolate
Dark Chocolate
This was some sort of evil magic, but your childhood mind just couldn't understand how chocolate could be so bitter! Jump forward to present day — not only do you realize the health benefits from dark chocolate, but you can't get enough of the sweet taste.
Cottage Cheese
Cottage Cheese
"Not a chance," you thought as a kid. Now, you add some fruit and can't believe you missed out on this combo after all those years!
Asparagus
Asparagus
The veggie was too bitter with a funky texture that your childhood taste buds detested. Now, you wish you could have appreciated it more growing up.
Grapefruit
Grapefruit
As a kid, grapefruit was way too sour, unless you buried it under a mound of sugar (which definitely wasn't good for you). Now, however, you add a pinch of salt to cut down on the acidity and it's easily one of your favorite fruits.
Avocado
Avocado
Avocado was a little too weird for your childlike taste in food, but now you'll eat guacamole any chance you get!
Okra
Okra
"Why does it have so many seeds and what's up with the slime?" you thought as a kid. It still might have the slime, but roasting okra was a total game-changer for your adult self.
