10 Healthy Foods We Love to Hate

From brussels sprouts to liver, here's how to learn to like and cook with them.

Whoever figured out that turnips could be eaten must have been really hungry. They don't look the least bit appetizing. A bulbous purple root, most men wouldn't pick one up in the grocery store and think, "Let's have a go at this." You wouldn't even know where to start.

Health benefits:
Turnips are a strong source of vitamin C, fiber, folic acid, manganese, pantothenic acid, and copper; plus they contain thiamine, potassium, niacin, and magnesium. They're starchy like potatoes, but with one-third the calories.

Learn to like it:
Substitute turnips where you usually use potatoes. Not only will this diversify your at-home menu, it will cut down on caloric intake. You can bake, mash, and cut them into French fries. They can also be served raw on a veggie tray.
