Sometimes I discover a food so delicious that I just want to eat it ALL THE TIME! There’s only one problem with this—if I’m not careful, I end up in a food rut, consuming my same favorite foods every day. Not only does this limit the variety (and thus the nutrition) of my diet, it is also very unfair to all the other amazing foods the world has to offer.
In light of this predicament, I’ve come up with a challenge for myself: Each week, I’m going to try a food I don’t normally eat—it can be a food I’ve never tried before, a food I haven’t had in years, or even a food that I’ve written off because I don’t remember liking it. Let the fun begin!
Growing up, I’d always believed I hated kiwi, but it recently dawned on me that I don’t even know why I thought this; I couldn’t remember the last time that I’d actually had a kiwi. So I figured I ought to give the little guy another chance.
Boy am I glad I did, as I discovered that my aversion to kiwi has been completely unwarranted; I actually really like it! In fact, after consuming the above specimen, I quickly returned to the store to buy up all his friends!
And now I’d like to extend an invitation to anyone brave enough: Join me in my challenge. You just might find a new favorite food!
