It's possible but if it does it will only be brief, I wouldn't worry too much. Need to turn you to the dark side, or should that be green side!

Try spinach/silverbeet/kale/chard (any/all) creamed.
Yes, with a healthy dose of cream ... and whatever other herbs/spices you feel you need for flavour.
You'll get there
Well done on your loss so far!
If you want a delicious way to eat a green veg - zucchini - get a mandolin slicer and use them as a (strip) pasta substitute. The finer setting makes strips almost as fine as spaghetti, the broad one like fettucine. Just make your favourite sauce and after a light toss of the zucchini in butter in a pan (to heat and soften slightly) plonk 'em in the sauce. Yum yum.
I do this with a smoked salmon, red onion & walnut sauce and it is delicious. With strong sauces you won't even taste the zucchini, just get the texture.
I use large ones slice to take the place of pasta in lasagne too.Odille -
