Hi, I’m April and I’m a picky eater. This may really surprise a lot of people given that I’m a ‘foodie’ and food blogger. I have issues with things that look strange, things with odd textures and things that smell weird. So basically I will eat macaroni and cheese and that’s about it. Okay, not really, but I’m working on having more of an open mind when it comes to my palate.
I’d like to think that a lot of people are like me when it comes to not liking certain foods in that they just won’t allow themselves to try them. I wouldn’t even go near an egg until recently. They looked strange, they had a weird texture and no matter how you prepared it for me I wasn’t going to eat it. And then I met quiche. All of the different flavors and textures that go into a quiche really turned me back on to eggs. I still won’t eat them scrambled or sunny side up but I am more open to trying them in alternative settings.
I think the best way to get on board with things that you think you don’t like is to slowly ease into them. Nobody said I had to eat a dozen eggs one day, I decided to take a small bite of quiche and fell in love. So here are my tips.
I’m slowly learning to be less picky and have more of an open mind about trying new foods that I didn’t think I would like. Taking small steps to ease yourself into new flavors or textures is your best option. And obviously you can’t force yourself to like something so maybe you might really not like a certain food. This is okay to admit! There are plenty of other foods in the sea.
