I've been following the McCombs Plan and today started the 9th week. That means I can add back in popcorn, nuts, legumes, dried fruit, and fruit juice. As I was getting a handful of mixed nuts I thought of something. There are things that I'll eat now, that I wouldn't have touched as a child. Here are a few: mayonnaise, cashews, cole-slaw, ranch dressing, cranberries.
Some things I absolutely wouldn't eat, but now, I can eat them if they are cooked in other things, like mushrooms and olives. (I still can't just eat them alone).
Of course, there are some things that are the same. I didn't like them as a child and I don't like them now. Jelly on my peanut butter sandwich (I love Nutella though), and raisins. My kids however could live on PB&J sandwiches and raisins. Go figure.
How about you? Are there some things you like or at least can eat now, that you couldn't stand as a child? Are there things you used to love as a child, but now can't stomach?
Until next time...
