I cycle through different ways and methods to prepare my veggies so I don't get bored.
-For example, I'll pack fresh salads for lunch. One week with romaine, and another with spinach and kale another week, sweet carrot and apple toppings, crunchy almonds, sliced or shredded zucchini, etc.
-Another week, I may steam kale and add onions and sesame oil, sesame seeds, and soy sauce. Collards, veggies and lentils and brown rice or quinoa.
-For the fruit , sometimes I will steam a big pot of apples with cinnamon, store in a container and add them to my oatmeal or yogurt. Or take ripe mangos in season, peel and blend them in blender, store in a container and freeze, take down as needed, and spoon into plain yogurt. YUMMM!!!!
It really doesn't have to be boring. If the person says they don't like fruit or veggies, they're just really saying "I don't know what to do with fruit and veggies in a creative way."

||I love most vegetables, have to hide peas into casseroles or puree them. I love a lot of fruits, except bananas, pears, cherries (the mushy stuff) I put them in breads though~|

|Many people do say fruit and vegetables are expensive. In Australia on pricing labels for each food on the shelves we have the cost per kilo printed. It is great to compare foods for example different brands of washing powder to see which is cheapest and is just like you compare foods on labels at calories/fat etc per 100g. Anyway if you look at chips and chocolate at cost per kilo and compare them to fruit and veg at cost per kilo you will be suprised that the chips and chocolate are far more expensive!|
