I am a new member and I am new to this blog thing. It took me several minutes just to get started. What I really need to talk about this new food (What did they call it?) Oh yeah, FRUIT! If it isn't and apple, orange or strawberry I don't know it. I don't know how to prepare it. I don't know how to cook it, (does it need to be cooked?). What does it taste like and how would I use it in a meal or snack? While looking over some flavored water (can't picture me drinking that plain stuff), I saw some weird yet cool combinations; BluePom (I guess some one coloured their dog and bottled the shampoo water?!), there was a strawberry kiwi (how did they catch that little bird like thing from New Zealand and put it in a bottle?), the list goes on. I am not making this up. I truly don't know what some of these are! My 22 year old daughter laughed and corrected the dog and bird theory, so you don't have to worry about trying to make these flavors at home! But then I took this new information to my local grocery store. I saw what a pom thing is, but what in the world would I do with it? How do I get in it? What could I use it for? And a kiwi, it looks like the egg of a kiwi bird! Do you eat that thing? ANd I am sure there are other fruits out there that I don't know about. And I won't go it the weird vegetables I saw! That will be another day. But, really folks. I want feedback on these new foods. I feel if I can use these things you all say are good for me, I might find this weight loss road a little less scary. Could you? Would you help? Thanks. I got the impression you are a good group of people!
