Beets_bowl_WEBVEGGIES! What vegetable did you despise growing up, but  you found a way to prepare to your liking?  We asked our DEFINE team to share with us a few veggie tales! Enjoy!

I love mashed potatoes but try to stay away from starchy vegetables, so I make cauliflower mash. Same texture and tastes good! Here’s a recipe I’ve used before. I also replace the butter with coconut spread to be dairy free.” – DEFINE Experience Expert, Jennifer Dao

“A fun way to prepare it is to pan sauté with oil, salt, pepper, then toss with honey, lime juice, Siracha sauce.  Gives a nice sweet and sour kick to it! ” –  DEFINE Instructor, Daisy Hui

“My mom always made broccoli with cheese and I was never a big fan (I am pretty certain she was trying to trick us into eating our veggies.) I recently started steaming broccoli with a splash of soy sauce, sea salt and a dash of red pepper flakes! It’s so yummy I could eat it as a meal!” – DEFINE instructor and The Woodlands Co-Owner, Megan Hayes

“Brussels sprouts, beets and sweet potatoes I did not like as a child and now they excite me when I see them on the menu. I would try and try again…finally I guess it was all about presentation.” – DEFINE Experience Expert Tanya Teske
