Another brilliant idea of mine

Written By: Jodi on June 14, 2008 2 Comments

Okay, I have no idea how to do this myself, but *somebody* needs to do it.

Here’s the deal. I don’t like veggies. Never have, most likely never will. I have some exceptions – fresh green beans, sweet corn, potatoes, carrots in some forms…I think that covers them all. Other than that elite group, no thanks on the veggies, I’ll pass.

I do realize that veggies are good for me. I realize I should eat veggies. But I’m also a 5 year old child and I just can’t force myself to eat something I don’t like. The ol’ gag reflex kicks in and that’s really not pleasant for anyone.

So, this is my idea.  I think they should create hybrid vegetables. Cross the healthy (not so yummy) veggies with (very yummy) chocolate! I know, I know, it’s genius. Chocolate is one food that I will eat in nearly any form or preparation, and I do so on a very frequent basis. Milk chocolate, white chocolate…I don’t discriminate, I love it all.  LOVE it.

I’m sure it can be done. They make hybrid roses to make them bigger, brighter, more aromatic – even into trees!. They mix different fruits to make new ones – aren’t tangelo’s a mix of tangerines and oranges?

Just imagine. Chocolate flavored broccoli, zucchini, asparagus, lettuce (did you notice that lettuce was NOT on my list of veggies I’ll eat?), spinach, radishes, peas, various beans…all of them! Not only would I eat them, I’m sure most kids who balk at them now would gobble them up. No more arguments over eating your veggies. Well, that might be a little optimistic, but the arguments would at least be different. “No Johnny, you may not have any more spinach. You’ve eaten quite enough already!”

Since I’m unable to pull this off myself, I invite those who are able to work on this little project of mine. Just cross the veggies with cocoa bean…bushes? trees? vines? Whatever, just get to work on it. Whoever pulls this off will be a hero to many a mother and child. Including me. So snap, snap, get to work!  We’re counting on you!

    You know, you could always just take a dehydrated vegetable capsule a few times a day and get your veggies that way;) My kids have some gummy bears that are like that:) hehe

    Oh, wow, I need those gummy bears! Actually, if I could get all the good stuff in a pill…that would be great. I take vitamins but I know they aren’t as good as having the real thing.

    I think you need to take me shopping sometime. Not that I’d get anything, but at least I’d have more knowledge and could fake knowing what people are talking about better. :-)
