has finally explained
my distaste for the superfood (editor’s note: You should TOTALLY eat broccoli. It’s so good for you!).
Variations on a gene that affects how people perceive
bitterness can make people turn their noses up at broccoli and other bitter
veggies. But that’s not all. The compound that gives some veggies and other
bites (like wasabi and garlic) their pungent taste can be too strong for some
folks to handle. And that rotting egg smell broccoli (and cauliflower and
cabbage) gives off when it cooks? Yeah, not so appealing to other individuals.
So there ya have it, Ma. I’ll take a side of roasted taters
and peas, please!
Confession time: I can’t stand broccoli. I don’t want to
look at it, I don’t want to smell it and I don’t even want to think about
eating it. Mom always thought I was just being picky, but it turns out
