There's no doubt that you are a strong person, but if you are still reluctant to dive right in, use the same strategies on yourself that parents use on small children. Serve yourself a small portion and take just three bites. Once you realize that the dish is not as terrible as you imagined, you might even find that you not only can tolerate it: you actually enjoy it. And guess what? Your body and your health will be enjoying it along with you.

Beet Recipe: Oven Roasted Root Vegetable Medley
1 lb. beets, peeled and cubed
1 lb. turnips, peeled and cubed
1 lb. red-skinned potatoes, quartered
1 lb. carrots, sliced into 1" coins
1 onion, cut into 1" pieces
1/4 cup olive oil
1-3 cloves of garlic (to taste)
2 tsp. fresh rosemary, chopped
Salt and fresh-ground black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Add all ingredients to a large bowl and toss gently to coat. Transfer to a roasting pan or casserole dish and roast 30-45 minutes until lightly browned, turning halfway through cooking time.
