    Re: Calorie Counting

    Frozen is good for corn and maybe a few others. It’s good for the times when you need something and need it quick. I usually keep a bag or two of frozen corn in my freezer.

    With very few exceptions (beets, artichoke hearts), canned vegetables are virtually inedible - especially when it comes to green beans and peas. Frozen is acceptable (except for Brussels sprouts, which must be fresh), otherwise fresh is always best. Canned, I'd rather lick pennies.

    Lol, was going to say the same thing.

    To DX’s point I never really cared for vegetables until I got older as well. We always had a garden so would have some decent, fresh vegetables, but there was a lot of canned and frozen stuff as well. I definitely prefer raw vegetables instead of cooked.

    The greatest non-monetary disservice the boomers and gen-X did to millennials was to prepare sh-tty canned vegetables. Growing up with horrid vegetables turned me off from them. It took me 30-some years to like broccoli. 25-something to like onions. Still don’t like mushrooms. I didn’t like salads until I was in my 20s.

    Steak with roasted broccoli? Yes please. A nice midweek salad? Yum.

    I have never had Thai food I didn't like. They could probably rehabilitate a lot of vegetables for me but I'm not sure whether stir fry defeats the whole purpose.

    I have a difficult time believing any of the Asian foods I love can be anything but lethal for me. Not that this stops me, you understand.

    Not painful at all. The trick is to be honest and to report everything publicly. Shame works.
