How Do I Eat Veggies That I Don’t Like? [Podcast Episode #093]
Pretty much all of us could stand to eat a few more veggies each day. But, what if you really just don't like the taste?
Should you force yourself to eat healthy foods simply because they're good for you? Or, is there an alternative plan of action?
I confess that I once hated veggies. I was the pickiest of picky eaters. But, I learned to love them by changing the way I prepared my meals. Here's how you can do it too...

How Do I Eat Veggies That I Don't Like? [Full Text]
Dave: Hey, thanks so much for joining me in this episode of the Make York Body Work podcast. As this show is all about helping you live a healthier and happier life. Today, we're talking about vegetables, we're talking about picky eating and how can we incorporate healthy foods into our diet when we just don't like the taste of them, we don't like the texture of them, but we're also talking about my favorite kitchen appliance.
And anyone who knows me well already knows what this appliance is and no, this is not a sales pitch. I'm not going to try and sell you anything, but my guest is an expert in my favorite kitchen appliance and so I'm really excited. He's got a lot of cool information for you.
A lot of cool recipe ideas as well. But this all started, this conversation started from Michelle, and Michelle's actually someone, she didn't write into the show but she's someone that I was working with in one of my programs, and here's what Michelle wrote.
She said, "I'm struggling a little with clean eating as it feels very restrictive and filled with foods that just don't work for me. There are many things that I just don't like the flavor of no matter how they are prepared. Spinach, kale, chard, collard greens, broccoli, carrots, beets, for example. Peas, chickpeas, beans, potatoes, any of those type make me gag. If I can swallow them whole, I can choke them down here and there."
Michelle, I appreciate your honesty. That's quite a litany of foods you don't like, and I can relate. When I was a kid, and even in my teenage years, I was the pickiest eater, I think I've talked about this before but the only vegetables I would eat were where it was corn and potatoes, which are probably not even the healthiest vegetables if I had to choose two.
Anything green, anything colorful, I just would not eat it. I can relate, again, those idea of eating something that you absolutely can't stand, the idea of choking something down. That's not a way to approach long-term healthy eating.
So then the question becomes, well what can we do then? I've got a really great guest. Not only is he really knowledgeable in this idea of incorporating more plants into your diet, but he's just a really great guy. Funny guy.
I know you're going to not only learn a lot from hopefully, well actually, I know for a fact that after the show, he is going to provide us with all kinds of resources that can take this conversation that we've had about healthy eating and put it into practice. So I'm really excited to introduce to you Lenny Gale.
Meet Lenny Gale
Dave: Hey, Lenny. Thanks so much for being on the show today.
Lenny: Yeah. Thank you, Dave.
Dave: Okay, first off, I need to tell you, I'm excited to have you here because I think my listeners know this but I'm a huge Vitamix guy. When I went to your website where your tagline says "Vegan Vitamix recipes, basically," that's what you do.
Lenny: That's what we do. You know, going to have that "basically" part in there because we do a lot more than that, but what we found is that our biggest benefit, the way that we help people the most, the best, the most frequently is by showing people how to make ... How to blend stuff, and how to blend plants. So, that's what we do.
We have a boat load of the Vegan Vitamix recipes, we make a handful every week, we email them to our newsletter, and the stories, the successes is really what keeps us going and that's what we do. We're the people could affectionately, call my wife and I, Mr and Mrs Vitamix and that's that's what we do and we've really come to own that role.
Dave: I love it, and for the listeners, I'm not getting any promotional dollars for saying this but I love my Vitamix. So I used to own ... Well, I went through other name brands out there. I don't want to offend you but I used to own basically a cheapo blender and I remember my friend got a Vitamix and she told me whatever the price was a couple hundred bucks.
They're several hundred bucks I remember thinking, "You're crazy. I would never buy that." And then I was at a Women's Wellness Expo and they were doing a demonstration and I watched these guys make soup, and smoothies, and ice cream and I was sold. It's just unbelievable.
Lenny: Yeah it is. It really is a magical experience and I think you have to try the things that it makes. You have to see it in action and as sort of virtual demonstrators, that's what we try to put across in our videos, in our photos. We can say, "Here, try this soup we made. Try this delicious frozen dessert. This green smoothie."
But we try and convey the wonderfulness and the magic of making things with your Vitamix, and really our ... Again, we talk about it a little bit about this offline. This is what we do. We're our Vitamix is our business, but what we really want is people just to blend.
Blend something, blend plants, we all know that that everyone wants to eat more vegetables, that everyone wants to feel a little better, be more energized, lose a little weight and we've found that the easiest way to do that is just a blend something every day. Doesn't matter what really you blend. It doesn't matter really what you blend it in but just something.
It's going to ... It's one meal that you're going to take away from your meal plan that you're dealing with. You can take it on the go, it's going to get you started, energized, feeling good. It's just the simplest thing, such a baby step to feeling so good all day, and just the momentum that'll get your through the rest of the week.
The Origin Story of Life Is No Yoke
Dave: Yeah, you're preaching to the choir. I love the convenience factor, health factor, taste factor. It's really got everything. I do have a question. So, why vegan Vitamix recipes?
Lenny: Okay, good question. If you look at the name of our site "Life Is No Yoke" this started off as a ... Well, let me take it step way back. This started as ... This was going to be my life's work. I was a overworked, traveling consultant. I had carried on 40 extra pounds, lived this horribly unhealthy lifestyle, smoked cigarettes, drink a ton, didn't exercise.
I was miserable and I to say that my clients love me. I was really good at what I was doing, but I did not love myself, and it took a while to figure out. I get the chills talking about every time but what do I want to do with my life's work? And health and wellness was it. I got really into egg whites.
They help me lose weight and build muscle, two things that I think a lot of people want to do, and so I created the site Life Is No Yoke. I thought I was going to sell egg whites or something. I don't know.
Dave: Ship them in the mail.
Lenny: No, really, I thought I'm going to be the milkman for egg whites. But I kind of left it open to interpretation and what I've found is that ... Well, basically, I adopted a dog and I've become really passionate about factory farming, and animals welfare and it's only because you ask but I don't generally put that out there right away.
Really, the plant based stuff is the best for you, as an individual from a mental capacity, from the physical capacity, and then of course, the environment, and the world, and animals. It just makes so much sense. It's where the world is going.
Of all the foods you can eat, plant-based foods are the best of the best
People are adopting a plant based lifestyle. Our mission is just to accelerate that adoption, and we've found that the best way for us to do it is say, "Hey, throw some plants in a blender and feel good about it."
Dave: Again, you really are preaching to the choir. So, I don't call myself a strict vegetarian, but I don't buy meat, I don't cook meat. I'll eat it if it's there but the way that I talk about is I think it's going vegetarian or vegan. There's four awesome things about it. Number one, the health aspect, number two, environment.
That was the one that got me, is when I started reading and researching about what eating a hugely meat based diet does the environment, I just couldn't do it any more. So, environment, cruelty to animals, and I had a fourth one ... Cost. A lot of people talk about, "I can't afford to eat healthy." Well, cut out the meat and you sure can.
Eating plant based food is not only beneficial for your body but also for the environment
A Plant-Based Diet is a Cost-Efficiency Diet
Lenny: Yeah that's right, that's right, and some of these things, like the environment, and the animal thing, those are a little abstract. They're far away and they're tough for people ... Well it's easy to have a cognitive dissonance.
Just be apathetic about it, but the things that you really hit home, like you say, is the health thing, and then the dollars, the money. It's more affordable to not be eating meat.
Dave: Then you can afford to buy a Vitamix.
Lenny: Yeah, look, we want to have a conversation about vegetable ... or no, picky eating and struggling to eat vegetables. But it's really true, making these changes that allows you to afford these Vitamix. You have one and it's never been easier to have one. They have zero interest payment plans, you can get them, pay over the course of 18 months, super easy.
What's cool is that now they're mainstream, it's not a crazy thing to do so much like it was. You can get them everywhere. It seems like everyone's got one, and it's ... So, it's easier from a dollars perspective because you can pay over a year and a half but it's easier from a feelings perspective. You don't feel like a crazy person dropping $400 on a blender.
Dave: Totally. Years ago I wrote this blog post that was talking about what went into my shopping cart at the grocery store and I talked about how I was a little bit annoyed about how my monthly grocery bill, I think was like $600 or something like that. Just for me, and I had one of my email subscribers write back to me and she said "It must be nice to be able to spend $600 a month on your groceries."
And I don't think she's trying to be mean but I think she could kind of understand ... Just saw that, "Well, hey I'm not in a position to spend that kind of money. Do I have to do that in order to be healthy?" And her and I we got to know each other, actually, through email and that was a motivating factor for me to really cut back on much I was spending on groceries, and now my budget ... I'm a budget guy, I live really tightly to my budget. I have $350 a month for my groceries, and that's buying high quality produce, but like I said, no meat.
Lenny: So, okay, that was the big change? Meat?
Dave: Huge change, and well, as of eliminated processed foods, I'm sure you can attest to this to, what are the most expensive items in the grocery store? it's things like, I harp on cereal all the time but I used to be a cereal junkie. A lox a cereal, it costs a fortune these days.
Lenny: Yeah, that's interesting and I can relate to that. I think the most critical emails that we get are the ones that I find ... They build the best relationships because I always follow up on emails like that where is like, "You know what? You're right. I really should think about this differently."
And when someone has the courage to send you an email like that it's not a troll email. This is someone that wants to open up a dialogue and wants to build a relationship. So, hearing that from you I think it's really neat.
Most of the healthiest foods are also the most affordable ones. Healthy eating does not have to be expensive
Dave: Well I'm glad you get it as well. I'm glad I'm not the only one that gets a hate email once in a while. I do want to ... Before we continue on just general food conversation to get into Michelle's question, because this is one, again, that I get all the time. Basically she says, "Hey I get it. I need to eat more vegetables. I need more plants but I just don't like a lot of the stuff." Is this something you hear a lot?
Lenny: Yeah, we hear it all the time .I'm sure you do something really similar you ask your readers what are you struggling with? What are you working on? And we get a variation of that response, "I want you more vegetables but I don't like this. I don't like that. I'm a picky eater, what do I do?"
We hear it all the time and we actually ... We wrote a little book about it. It relates to our work. It's "How To Use A Vitamix." To solve that problem but Yeah, we hear we hear all the time. So, we, my wife and I [inaudible 00:13:23] we looked at this question from a show and we really sat down to think, "What would we recommend to someone ... Do we have a few things to recommend." And we do.
So, I have five things in response to someone who's feeling like a picky eater they don't like X, Y, and Z. But they want to. Is that that kind of the gist of the question?
Dave: You came prepared. I like this.
Lenny: Thanks. Okay ...
Dave: Go for it. Let's dive in.
Lenny: All right, so, do you have the question in front of you?
Dave: Yeah, definitely, and the listeners already heard it so go for it.
5 Steps to Making Healthy Eating Delicious...Even If You're a Picky Eater!
Lenny: Okay, great. Recommendation number one is first of all, find things you do you like and stick with it, okay? We hear something ... we hear people talk about kale, "Oh, we don't like kale. It's miserable to eat." Do you like Romaine? Stick with Romaine. That's fine. Not everyone needs to eat kale or like kale. If you don't like potatoes, maybe sweet potatoes.
People ... I think it's hard because if you look at social media, people won't make eating the rainbow something that everyone ... They make it look easy. they make it seem something that everyone ought to do. You don't eat the rainbow. If there's a few vegetables that you like, stick with it and feel good about what you do like.
Dave: I agree with that. I think that eating the rainbow, I can see why people say that from a nutritional standpoint, variety is good. But when people are coming from the place of saying, "I don't like vegetables." To say to them, "Okay, all you need to do is eat every color of the rainbow." It's not that helpful.
Lenny: Right, exactly, exactly, and that goes back to a bigger topic. A lot of people out there really aren't giving you good advice. I hate to say it but you want to just get little wins, and get momentum, and feel good about what you do today, and that kind of leads into the next one, baby steps.
Okay, try and get some little wins. Baby steps to move forward, to not necessarily the rainbow but to eat more fruits and vegetables. So, let's say you don't like pears, okay? But you want to eat some pears. Maybe mix in a little bit of pear with apples, if you like apples, in a salad for example.
I think ... How about this? Sweet potatoes. You don't like sweet potatoes. Do sweet potato fries. that's a step forward in embracing eating more vegetables, eating things that you think you don't really like. So, feeling good about little wins, I think, is important. baby steps.
As with any new habit, start with one small step that will lead you to the next
Dave: Again, I agree with that. So, I'll give you an example. When I look at Michelle's list, to be honest, I like most vegetables but the one that stands out to me is beets, and again, my listeners have heard me say this before. I have a severe taste aversion to beats, and I wish I loved them. But I will say, I remember when I got my Vitamix, I thought, "Okay, here's my solution.
I'm going to make beat smoothies and everything's going to be great." And I made one and I still hated it. But I can do exactly what you said. I can put, and I will do this sometimes, even a quarter of a beat in my smoothie, and okay, over four smoothies I just ate a beat that I otherwise wasn't going to eat.
Lenny: Right. No, that's a great point and that kind of brings me to my next one which is hide the things that maybe you want to be incorporating. Hide them. This is a thing that parents, this is advice that parents often get. Maybe you want to eat some more green vegetables. Zucchini, put a little zucchini in your pasta sauce in there or taste it.
Edamame is a great one you can just throw on a salad to give it texture, and then obviously the smoothie thing. Like you say, throw a little beat your smoothies see what happens. We have a wonderful beet smoothie that doesn't taste like beets, it tastes like sweet refreshing deliciousness.
Dave: Okay, I'm going to take of that challenge. I'm excited to try that.
Lenny: Yeah, we have a wonderful beet smoothie, and even kale. Green smoothies are terrible if you don't make them right. We have a You Tube video that we're actually just finishing up producing but it's how to make a green juice in your blender that's delicious every time, and there's a couple tricks to it, so that you don't taste the kale, or the spinach, or whatever you put in it.
I can tell you it's lemon, and ginger, and a little bit of spicy, and when you get those three mixed in with your green that's going to make it so it doesn't taste like salad, like you're drinking salad. So, that it tastes like a refreshing, delicious juice.
Dave: And again, I don't want to make this into a sales pitch because really we're not selling Vitamixes here but...
Lenny: Seriously, that is not the goal here.
Dave: But it's hard not to talk but the benefits of having a high powered blender whether it's a Vitamix, or another one. This past Christmas I was at home visiting my family and they ... I was staying at my sister's place and she had a cheapo blender similar to the one I used to have, and I bought some kale and went to make a kale smoothie in the morning, and literally, I was drinking kale leaves.
There is chunks of kale leaves and the blender just couldn't blend it. Whereas when I do to in my Vitamix ... If someone says they don't kale I would challenge them, come over to my house let me make a kale smoothie. You'll never know, you'll never know.
Lenny: That's right, that's right, you'll never know. You don't taste it.Yeah, so you got to do it right. You got to figure out ways to hide things that you don't like.
Okay, next one, this is number four I think, Change the form of it. For example, Michelle says she doesn't like chick peas. Have you had hummus? A million different kinds of hummus you can make but hummus, hummus is chick peas, and chick peas alone are pretty gross.
Even if you just throw chick peas on top of a salad, for me, when I make a salad and there's chick peas on there, that's the last thing to get eaten if at all, and so hummus. Hummus is the most wonderful thing. When we don't know Hamas we go to the grocery store. We dip everything into hummus. We live in hummus. What's another example?
Dave: And hummus is so easy to make as well. I make my own hummus. Literally, once you have the process down, you know the ingredients, 10 minutes max, and I have a batch that will last me all week.
Lenny: Exactly, and it's fresh. There's no preservatives. You get it to taste exactly the way you like, and there's a million different variations. We made sun dried tomato hummus, edamame hummus, black olive hummus, what else? Roasted red pepper, I don't know if I said that.
So many different flavors, and like you said, they'll last all week, and not only can you dip things into it, but you can use it as a spread on sandwiches. What else? Hot Soup. So, she mentioned beans, and peas, and carrots. who likes to eat peas that isn't a one year old baby? Put it into a soup.
Hot soups are wonderful especially ... We're based out of Chicago, we're about to be moving back to our hometown Minneapolis. The weather can be kind of cold. Hot soup is the most wonderful thing and also a really good way to hide some of these things that you don't like to eat on their own. Beans, peas, carrots, potatoes. Things like that. Even kale, throw kale in the soup.
Dave: And I like that because it is seasonal. So, I'm in Canada and same thing, we had to get a cold winter here, and I actually just spoke with one of my listeners yesterday who said, "Well, I'm just getting back into smoothies because I don't do them when it's cold here." so then you can do soups in the winter, smoothies in the summer. It's easy.
Lenny: Yeah, and we've really found is that when people say they don't like vegetables, or they don't like a certain vegetable, Yeah, with beets for example. It might be the taste. Beets of a very unique, very strong taste but a lot of times the aversion is a texture issue. You don't care for the texture of beans, or chickpeas, or beans. So change the texture. The example with hummus, soup, and then the example with kale. Turn them into a delicious green juice.
Dave: Yeah, No, I completely agree. I was going to save this for the end of the show but just before I forget, would you mind, sorry I'm going to give you a little bit of homework, but would you mind giving us, honestly, as many as you like but your top five smoothie recipes, your top five soup recipes because those are the resources I get asked for all the time. Would you be able to put that together?
Dave: And then we'll just link them in the show notes, or for listeners, if you go to makeyourbodywork.com/93, I'll give you all these links from Lenny, you can go check out their website and try some of them out. Let us know do you like them?
Lenny: Yeah, we would love to. We have some awesome awesome smoothies, and awesome awesome soups. So, yeah, absolutely.
Okay, and then the last thing for Michelle, and people, who are feeling the same way. Don't try and change the world. Just accept who you are and what you like and what you don't like.
It kind of goes back to don't feel like you need to eat the rainbow but just feel good about who you are. For example, My wife Shaba, she doesn't really care for tofu. She's really picky about it, needs to be prepared in a very certain way. It's probably a texture issue. she doesn't do tofu. Me? I love apples. Really good, crisp, sweet but tart apples. But if it's not perfect, if it's not crunchy, crispy, sweet the perfect red apples, I don't really care for it.
To me, they kind of taste like pears, they're mushy, and so if it's beets for you, if it's chick peas for you, if it's ... Whatever it is, it's okay to not like everything. There are other vegetables that you can eat that get you the same result of the ones that you probably don't like.
To improve, you never have to compete with anyone else... only your former self!
What We Teach Kids About Eating Their Veggies
Dave: That's an interesting message because think about when we were kids, how often do you hear that message? "You need to eat what's on your plate." Or, "This is what I made for dinner. Eat it and like it." And some of those messages probably do stick with us. You mentioned peas, who likes peas? I remember my mom making peas and saying "You got to finish your plate." And I hated them and no wonder I don't really cook with them now because I have this horrible experience of being forced into them as a child.
Lenny: Traumatize, yeah, and one more thing sort of comes to mind here and this wasn't even on my list but I read an article recently about getting kids to like vegetables, broccoli, carrots, things like that, and they said "Contrary to what people say about tricking them, putting it in a smoothie." Whatever, change the form.
A way to do it is just to ... Not force it upon them but offer it. Lots, and lots, and lots of times, and if you have to mix it with something that they like. So, I think broccoli? Kids probably are more likely to eat raw broccoli with cheese, a cheese sauce, queso, a ranch dressing, and I am too.
I'd much prefer to eat raw broccoli with queso or ranch dressing, and so it's okay to introduce, or bring things like that into your diet with that method and what's neat is that eventually you'll stop feeling the need to compliment it was some of these things that might not be as great for you.
Dave: I agree with that. I like the message of adding in and not always thinking about taking out. So, if that is what it takes to add in some of these, I think that's a great idea.
Which Plant-Based Foods Have the Most Protein?
Dave: Lenny, one of the things I wanted to ask you just based on the fact that Life Is No Yoke is vegan. Again, a question I get all the time as well where's your protein source from? So, in your recipes can you give some examples of the proteins that you and your wife are using most often?
Lenny: Yeah so, we get our protein from a lot of different sources. First of all, a little bit of tofu. I know there's some challenges with GMO, and for guys, you maybe may be able to relate, having too much soy, but that's one source. What's another one? Tempi. We really nuts. So, I eat a lot of almonds, a lot of cashews.
But then also things you don't expect to have protein are dark greens, beans have protein. So, we really ... It's not as easy as saying, "Okay, I'm going to have this meat and that equals protein [inaudible 00:26:57]."
Try and listen to our bodies and feed it what it's asking for, and know that the types of things that we like, the types of things that we like to make have the right things in it that have protein from a lot of different sources.
Dave: And I think you hit on a really good point there is that sometimes the way that we're trained to put meals together, a vegetable, starch, and a protein. It's maybe not as simple as that at first, but it does become second nature as you practice it.
I remember when I first started to cut out meat, and I was looking at this nutritional comparison of meat versus non-meat foods from a protein perspective, and I was blown away by the percentage of different plants that are actually protein based on weight. So, give an example, spinach is actually, on a percentage basis, higher in protein then steak or chicken is.
But because we generally don't eat a huge weight or mass of spinach, we don't think of it as a protein source. But when you start to add up all these vegetables, like you said, particularly the dark greens, we are getting a lot more protein the maybe even think.
Lenny: Yeah, that's a great point. You get more than you think you're getting. another thing is I don't think we need as much as you think. I think there's a lot of, maybe, sort of propaganda in the nutrition there that even the fitness world.
Others say you need a ton of protein. You don't need as much as you think as long as it's coming from the right sources and it's a balance with the other things that you're eating. The right nutritional. It's holistic. I to think of it very holistically.
Make Your Body Work Takeaway
Dave: Again, I completely agree with you. So, tons of awesome information here. Thank you for, first of all, for putting together those five tips for Michelle and anyone else who fall into a similar place as Michelle. We like to end the show with what's called "A make your body work take away" and it's kind of that one starting place. What would you say if someone says, "I don't really like vegetables. I know I need them. What should I do?" What's the one thing you tell them to start with?
Lenny: Yeah, man, blend. Just blend.
Dave: I knew you're going to say that.
Lenny: yeah that's our shtick but it's so true, and it's the easiest way, it's the most convenient, it's the most cost effective, and it's the thing that's the most likely to get you moving in the right direction. Just blend.
Blending veggies might just be the simplest way to consistently eat a healthy diet
Dave: I Love it. So, Lenny, I'm going, again, after we get off this interview, I'm going to get those links from you, and I'll put those in the show notes, again, for the listeners makeyourbodywork.com/93. But I also want to put some links ... You have a free giveaway at Top Ten. Can you tell the listeners about what that is?
Lenny: Yeah, it's our Top Ten plant based Vitamix recipes. Double check with my wife but, yeah, Top Ten plant based Vitamix recipes. Many of them work in any blender, and it's kind of a one pager, something you can just print off and put in your junk drawer, somewhere, in your kitchen to try some blender recipes.
Connect With Lenny
Dave: Awesome, I love the fact all in one place and then you don't have to worry about going back to the Internet and searching for links. So, that's hugely helpful, and Lenny if anyone wants to reach out and talk ... I don't know, talk Vitamixes or just talk blending, where is the best place for them to get a hold of you?

So, we're going to not only have some smoothie recipes, some soup recipe, some hummus recipes, but also some dips the can use, as he suggested, to pair up with vegetables that maybe you don't want to eat on your own but you would like to incorporate into your diet. As well as some healthy dessert options, and all of this will be available if you go to makeyoubodywork.com/93. So, be sure to go check that out.
Definitely check it Lenny's website and just add some of these. Start trying some of these recipes. Add them into your repertoire. Try it if you don't like it, great, try something else and find a collection of ones that you really like and really work well for your body.
So, again, hopefully you learned a lot from this episode. Next week I'll be back with another great guest, another great question, and then another great episode for you. Can't wait to see here again next week.
