Happy Friday friends!!! 😀
I don’t know about you but I am so ready for the weekend! All that stands between me and the weekend are a splint critique and a presentation.
Since I know you’re all wondering, the winner of my Lush Nuts giveaway is:
Melissa from Hungry Healthy Happy!!!! Congrats girlie :). Email me your shipping information asap!
So I’ve been loving my granola that I was sent last week from Love Grown Foods. Last night I had a super tasty bowl of the Apple Walnut Delight with some vanilla chobani- a total winner of a combination!
I’m trying to savor the granola for as long as possible because it’s so good! Although, when I think about it, I probably wouldn’t have eaten this granola a couple of years ago because of the coconut. I now like coconut but I used to absolutely hate it! And it wasn’t because I didn’t like the taste…it was the texture that I didn’t like.
You see, I’m a texture person. And by that I mean there are a lot of foods that I don’t like because the texture freaks me out. Here are some of the major ones:
Peaches: the fuzz gives me the willies (yes I did just say willies)
Bananas: Ok, I love bananas but I hate banana strings. Thank goodness you can get rid of them and still eat the banana!
Raw Broccoli: OMG I absolutely cannot eat raw broccoli. The way those little balls of the floret (I’m sorry I don’t know what else to call them) crumble in my mouth as I’m eating them make me want to gag. Actually I usually do gag when I eat raw broccoli. It’s pretty much an automatic response haha.
Runny Eggs: I only like my eggs cooked completely. If the yolk isn’t cooked, the sliminess is just blech….so gross. I kind of wish I liked runny eggs because then I’d be able to enjoy them sunny side up! Maybe someday…
Those are just four of the food textures that freak me out and thus I cannot and will not eat. And there are plenty more but I won’t bore you. I know…I’m weird :). I can’t help it. I’ve always been a picky eater but thankfully my palate has been able to expand as I’ve gotten older! At least I can still maintain a healthy diet eating other foods!
Oh, and I’ll leave you with this website I came across last night. It lets you click on a body part and then it will show you a bunch of different exercises you can do for that area!
Hope you all have a fantastic Friday!
Do you have any foods that you don’t like because of the texture?
Have you ever been or are you a picky eater?
