Hi lovelies! I hope that your week is going well and that you all had a wonderful weekend. Unfortunately, my Grandma was in the hospital this weekend, so I spent the weekend and today with her. But I’m thankful for all the support and prayers my family has received and we are praying for a full recovery!
Since this is primarily a healthy living blog, you guys know about a lot of my eating habits. I love my veggies and most fruits (peaches aside) but there are two foods that I just won’t usually touch- eggs and fish. But here’s the silly part… it’s not because I don’t like them. As a kid, I used to eat both of these, but my oldest brother convinced me that I should stop eating both food items. And somehow, it’s stuck ever since. It’s such a mental thing which is frustrating at times because I let that stand in the way of trying new foods. So, for the past few years I have been really trying to expand my diet.
Turns out, the more that I try, the more foods I find that I like! I wouldn’t say that eating sushi is my favorite thing ever, but the more I eat, the more I enjoy it. Turns out, this applies to a lot of foods! On a date also in London, the guy ordered a side of mushrooms which at the time were not one of my favorite foods and now I can’t get enough. I think that there is really something to be said to exposing yourself to different foods and just trying them.
Now that I’m trying to expand my food horizons, I find myself open to a lot more fun experiences! Like trying raw sea urchin in San Diego…
Sea urchin was definitely a food that I can say that I’m glad I tried, just not necessarily one that I will go out of my way to try again. But now I know and it was a fun experience. Now, I wonder what I’ll try next…
-What foods did you used to not like that you like now?
