Have to politely disagree on this point. I was raised by vegetable eating parents, my sisters and brother all like the same veggies as my parents. I do not like the same veggies. Especially how some were overcooked, i.e. Broccoli, Cauliflower, Brussels Sprouts, Cabbage. At this point I can tolerate Broccoli and Cabbage...raw or very lightly steamed.

I am mostly meat and starchy veg/pasta/rice oriented and I was not raised that way. And, I am the one that weighs the least...

You may be skinnier than me, but I'm 6"1' and weigh close to 300 lb ( my scale does not go over 300 lb). I've been thinking of spending some time in Skineatales

That's why I said I weigh the least, I am decidedly overweight, but not as overweight as my veggie loving siblings.

I love cilantro, as does my wife. Chips and salsa with no cilantro in the salsa is bland and boring. I'll eat fresh cilantro on just about anything.

My brother hates it - same mom and dad so go figure.
