I am 60 years old and have hated broccoli all of my life. I would try it occasionally, but never changed my mind.
A few months ago we were at a party and they had a pasta salad. I took a spoonful and as I was eating it I noticed there was a small piece of broccoli. I said to the table “ew broccoli!” They all looked at me and said to just eat it. I mentioned that I didn’t like it and they ignored me.
So I decided to try it again. I mentioned I was going to eat it and did and was shocked to find out I liked it. It was raw and had Italian salad dressing on it. Guess I never tried it raw before.
So my fridge now contains broccoli.
My fasting sugar was 156 this morning. I am using only insulin now. Fast acting and a daily slow acting one. Still messing up occasionally, but getting better. My belly is bruised though from the injections. Not everyone bruises, but enough do.
