I don't consider myself a picky eater, but there are definitely some things that I don't like: tomatoes, asparagus, mushrooms and olives. There used to be a much longer list, but I am working from a new perspective.
Action 089 - Taste It First. Used to be, I wouldn't eat pickles, bell peppers, mustard, broccoli... the list goes on and on. Either I tried those things as a child and didn't like them, or I just knew from the look and smell that they would be horrible.
These days, I find that my taste buds have changed and some of the awful things aren't awful at all. So I'm keeping that in mind when I find myself offered something that I usually don't eat. Maybe it's a restaurant offering an eggplant dish or a friend cooking an unusual fish. Whatever the opportunity, I am finally wise enough to at least taste the item and give it a chance.
Who knows what my new favorite food might be?
