My entire life I have avoided fruits and most vegetables. In the past 5 years I have started to try veggies more and more. I know I love Brussels sprouts, broccoli and asparagus. I will try nearly any veggie now. I just love the different textures and tastes. I have already been reluctant to fruits. I remember trying a few fruits as a child. As for most children, (I think) I didn’t love fruit.  I had strawberries once at 8, made a face and never tried them again. That was until recently. I have tried many fruits while living in Los Angeles including strawberries, raspberries, plums, apples, oranges.

I cannot believe I have lived my entire life without eating the delightfulness of the Strawberry.  While this is shocking to some, I know I was a very picky eater. I know my mom did her best to make me eat healthy and sometimes just wanted to me to eat healthy or not. I can’t blame her after working a long day who wants to fight with a brat?

From here on out, I will be making more of an effort to eat healthy, with fruits, veggies and trying new things, I will not wait to try anything. I am ready to explore everything I have held back on!
