Now snacking’s not a bad thing—it can fuel you until your next meal and also can be a great place to get in some food groups you’re missing in your other meals.

I’ve never been a picky eater. Even as a child, I gleefully ate yogurt, wheat germ, broccoli...even liverwurst! And that’s a good thing, because eating a wide variety of whole foods is key to good nutrition. But what about people who flat out hate certain foods?
