    Interesting. I don't really find that turnips need much help. I had them just 2 weeks ago and only mixed them with carrots and onions with a little oil and seasoning. I have a rotation of vegetables that I like to "feature" for a week or two and turnips are on the list.

    Same, and this is pretty much what I like to do. Nice part of a roasted medley.

    I also like them in some soups and some of them are good raw (although radishes and kohlrabi are generally better raw).

    I find that if I use spiralized turnip noodles in a stir-fry with sweet and sour sauce, or roast them with some salt, pepper, olive oil, and thyme, they are amazing.

    I'd distinguish this from rigidly refusing to eat things out of prejudice, which can be a thing. I do think it's good to experiment with new foods, and to give them a fair try . . . which can include trying them several times, prepared in different ways.

    This and I will retry foods that I previously did not like on occasion to see if I like them now. I have liked, disliked, and then liked a few foods. Broccoli is one. I liked it okay in my 20's. I hated it for about 10 years to the point I didn't even like to smell it. Now some weeks I eat 2+ pounds of it.

    Still waiting to like olives. I think it'll happen eventually. I used to hate hummus, pesto and tomatos, now I like them.

    Try garlic stuffed olives. I mean everything is better with garlic ...

    This is true.

    Eggs, they're so boring but a good source of protein. I love eggs in a basket with honey or huevos rancheros , but plain eggs are my usual breakfast and they are boring alone.

    Make frittatas with them. There are endless combinations of ways to make them interesting. Shoot, one time I scraped the toppings off of some leftover veg pizza into one.

    only one thing: I make turmeric paste. It's SO disgusting, yuck!! but I discovered it's ok if I mix it with my cashew milk. If I don't have it every day I'm in pain, other than that I don't really eat anything I don't like BUT I DO eat more greens than I have before, I like to sprinkle grated cheese & a little butter on, but before mfp, I wouldn't have even tried all the different kinds. Recently I started making green juice in my nutribullit so I mostly just drink it

    I am not overly keen on a plain egg either. I just grab an egg, add some chopped up vegetables (you could also add meat if you wanted) and whisk it with some turmeric, pepper and paprika. Whack it in the microwave for a minute and presto, a quick and tasty snack.

    Almond milk. I get stomach issues when I have regular milk. Not all dairy products, just cow milk. No idea why. So, almond milk is the one substitute I can tolerate the most.

    I hardboil eggs a lot, mainly for simplicity, and a couple of drops of a good hot sauce on top of the egg takes it from bland to tasty.

    If you are finding tasteless eggs, see if you can grab some direct from a farm or someone's backyard chickens some time.

    Try adding some chile or salsa.

    Leftover pizza? That's almost sacrilege! Leftover pizza should be consumed for breakfast, as intended. Otherwise why would you get that nice box to keep it in?

    I don't eat breakfast and pizza dries out if refrigerated in the box. Store your food correctly!

    If you have a Trader Joe's: https://www.traderjoes.com/digin/post/shakshuka-starter. You are "supposed" to poach the eggs in it, but I like to scramble the eggs and stir them in. (The Trader Joe's pepita salsa is also good on eggs.)

    If you're a Penzey's fan: https://www.penzeys.com/online-catalog/fox-point-seasoning/c-24/p-393/pd-s. This stuff is amazing on most things, including eggs. Especially eggs with a little cheese.

    Maybe I like dried out pizza!

    And I shouldn't have to remind you that the first meal you eat that breaks your fast and opens your eating window is breakfast :tongue: Get your terms correct if you're going to do it. Gosh.

    Not gonna lie, no sarcasm, I do love pizza when it's a bit dried out. I love a crust that is just a little bit chewy! Leftover Little Caesar's is the pizza that does it best. Or Jet's.

    You two are pizza-ing wrong.

    Also, I don't break my fasts I bend them and then they return to the same shape when I stop eating. My first meal is bendfast.
