Default Veggie Hater....

So, while I am changing my eating habits, one of my issues is that I REALLY hate vegetables. Like, a lot. The only veggies I like are corn, potatoes, and tomatoes cooked certain ways (I know tomatoes are technically fruits but I'm counting them anyway). I do LOVE Prego chunky garden spaghetti sauce, which claims to have two servings of veggies per serving of sauce, and V8 Fusion, but that's about it.

I know that health wise I should be eating veggies, but honestly I detest the smell of most veggies as they are being cooked, and can't seem to make myself swallow any raw ones I've tried. I will eat fruit, but it's not something I tend to seek out--before I started working on my eating habits I could happily go months without eating a fruit on purpose.

Any tips for hiding veggies in food? Also, if I were to puree them and add them to other foods, what kind of nutrient loss would i be looking at? I already take a prenatal multivitamin (not preggers, Dr. recommends it for all women my age range), a super B complex supplement, and a calcium supplement--are there any other supplements I should be taking to make up for my lack of veggie consumption?

PS--I do like pumpkin, but only if baked into something sweet or mixed with ice cream, so I guess that doesn't really count....
