I hated carrots as a child! Yet learning about the power of carrots literally saved me from cancer.
My parents, who immigrated from Austria (now Yugoslavia), were avid vegetable eaters. After all, I was born in l923, when refrigeration was very archaic. We actually used iceboxes to store our perishables. There was an iceman who came to our home every other day. Produce had to be purchased almost on a daily basis, especially in the summer.
