Diet And Fitness News You Need To Know

So there is a list of the Top 10 Most-Hated Foods in the US.  Of course there is.  Kitchen Daily did the dirty work.   Guess what's #1?  Brussel sprouts.  Try them roasted with balsamic vinegar.  You'll never look at them with disdain again.

As for the others hated food items:

  • Garlic - LOVE the flavor.  The breath we're left with?  Not so much. 
  • Cheese Fondue - not sure I've ever had it! 
  • Tofu - again....huge fan.
  • Celery - I love this veggie in all forms: raw, juices, with peanut butter on it. 
  • Oysters - one of life's delicacies. 
  • Mayonnaise - I hate it. 
  • Mushrooms - one of my favorite things to eat. Grilled portobellos? Oh my. 
  • Licorice - yep.  Gross
  • Cilantro - I don't get the hatred for this fine herb.

Here's what else caught my eye in the diet and fitness world this week:
