Trying Something New

I can be a pretty picky eater. Admittedly, I eat way more variety now than I did when I was a kid, but I still shy away from certain things. There are very few fruits and vegetables that I actually like and will eat on a regular basis: sweet potatoes, asparagus, corn, green beans, carrots (uncooked), celery, strawberries, green apples, bananas, green grapes, peaches, and cherries. I know. I know, I should eat more than that, but I just don't like it. I'm not going to force myself to eat something I cannot stand. So with my aversion to veggies and all, I had always stayed clear of veggie burgers and the like.

I was feeling adventurous last week. And I had a coupon. So I bought a couple of packages of Morningstar Farms products. I tried one of them out last night. Oh. My. Stars. It was so delicious. I tried the hickory bbq riblets. It's not real pork, but dang if I couldn't tell the difference. It was sooo tasty and the bbq sauce was delish. I paired my portion of "ribs" with some mashed sweet potatoes and asparagus. Quite the well rounded dinner (and WW points friendly too) and it was so good. I'm glad there are leftovers!

You definitely eat a larger variety of foods than when you were a child!!! Se what you were missing!

Oh come on - like you would have bought veggie burgers :P

No I wouldn't have, but I meant all the other stuff you wouldn't eat!

Thanks for the tip! I've been saying I need to eat healthier and, as much as pork rules, having an alternative is great.

Let us know how the others work out!

For someone that admits to liking and eating "very few fruits and vegetables on a regular basis," that looks like a pretty significant list.

nichole said...

Yeah, but then I think about all the ones that are left besides the few that I listed. Out of the whole variety of fruits and veggies, I basically only eat 4 of each.

Okay, maybe more than 4, but you know what I mean.
