I hope you all enjoyed the weather! I sure did!
Tonight I want to talk about trying new foods. A good friend of mine called me asking for advice on what to eat for a good source of potassium (other than bananas.) This got me thinking; hm; to lose weight we have to change our dietary habits. However, where do we start!
I know! I know! The grocery store!
You may have been in the grocery store 1,000 times, but have you ever looked for things in your grocery store? I can tell you I get the blinders on and neglect to look at all of the food in the store!
I challenge you to try something with me!
Please, buy one fruit and one vegetable you have either A) never had before or B) have not had in over three years!
Why 3 you say? Well studies show that your tastes and tastebuds change every three years. So you may have hated that pineapple when you were a teen, but you might love it now! [BTW-This actually happened with me and pineapples too!]
Here are the foods I tried that would fit into this challenge!
Try Again Foods:
The list could go on, but you get the idea!
Do I like all of these? Actually yes, I do like these foods. Not all of them are my super favorite, but I am glad I tried them again! Onions were the biggest scapegoats of them all. I used to LOATHE onions, but now I will eat them raw! [Kyle thinks I'm strange for doing such a thing!]
Give it a shot! You never know what you will find. Tonight I found this lovely gem...
Haha! I found one other item in the store, but I will wait towards the end of the entry to share with you what that exactly was!
Here's my food intake for the day!
Breakfast: Poached Eggs on Sandwich Bites
Snack 1: Frosted Mini-Wheats
Lunch: Leftovers...with Yogurt, a Pretzel and 16 Animal Crackers (Not pictured.)
Snack: (Combined with my runner's snack!) A full banana and some carrots!
Dinner: Adult Home-made Grilled Penni c/Clementines and Sour Cream and Onion Chips
Snack: Tea and...and...an APPLE PEAR!
So what new foods did YOU try today!?!?! Let me know! Please share! And as always, thanks for reading!
