I love Scothish Oatmeal but I have recently discovered "Pho bo vien" which is a Vietmanese noodle & Beef Meatball soup that uses fresh mint leaves (or basil at some places) lime wedges, sprouts and jalapeno slices to garnish with. It's a little high in salt from some places but it's a large bowl(2-3 cups) for around 370 calories. I thought my friend was setting me up for something strange but it's really good!

I hear you about the texture. It is why I cannot eat yogurt. I have been trying some new foods. I have started eating the steel cut oatmeal instead of the regular kind. Now I don't like the regular kind.

I, too, have recent additions to my meals that i never thought I would enjoy. As a child i ahted things and would not even try them because of what they looked like. pea's usually ended up splattered on the ceiling. But recent foods that I ahve tried and getting sued to in the apst year are... zuchini (asp) sweet potatoe and yams Oatmeal raspberries and blueberries asparagus
i still can't stomache cauliflower and spinich and brussel sprouts and cabbage
I would not eat salad until one morning my dad took me to breakfast. I was about 14 I think. He gave me a taste of his salad (yes breakfast) and I just fell in love with blue cheese! After that I starting eating salad just for the dressing. Now I love salad with tons of different veggies - and... I don't just eat blue cheese.

In the ancient of days, when I was in 3rd grade, I ate school lunches. We had to eat salsd, then main entre and desert. No salad, no main entre, no salad and no main entre the no desert. One day they served a main entre of Macaroni with tomato sauce and hamburger in it. I knew I did not like it. I ate the salad and begged for dessert. No. I had to at least take a taste. Reluctantly I tried it. It was the best thing I had ever tasted at the time. I ate two large helpings and have loved it ever since. After that lesson I have tried many dishes from many different cultures and have discovered lots of incredibly delicious foods that I love to eat. I now have the size and weight to prove it

cooked cauliflower and oatmeal for me too. I had never actually tried either, and they aren't bad. I do need to add a bit of garlic and spices to the cauliflower and I HAVE to make sure the oatmeal is chewy and not mush.
A lot of the time I know I don't like foods not because of the taste, but because of the texture. So I have to keep trying different ways to cook them.
MUSCLE DOES NOT WEIGH MORE THAN FAT 5 lbs = 5 lbs
5 lbs of muscle simply takes up less space than 5 lbs of fat!
If nothing tasted as good as being thin felt, no one would ever get fat!
Taboule Salad - It's great on tortilla with chicken slices, hummus, lettuce, etc.
Dont be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.
As a kid I didn't like anything green. Now the green vegetables are my favorite. My biggest obstical I overcame was sushi. I always thought i needed some heat with fish....but it's good. I think it's the wasabi I actually crave though.
I have always tried new foods ever since I was young. I love fair food as we call it. Plus you could find all kinds of diffent stuff than you were used to at home. I'm always trying new things at home in fact I just got done printing recipes for some Indian food from the weekly sparkpeople I just read. We usually rotate between asian, mexican and american styles. Now it's time to broaden the horizen again. It's time to try falafels and we're going to spice up the cauliflower and make it korma style. I am the cook and my family loves me.
