When I got around to thinking about it I've already tried four new foods this year, and I was pretty proud of myself for that!
These have always scared me. I thought they were either super spicy, or super pickly and have always thought people are crazy for putting them on their sandwiches and pizza. At happy hour a month ago someone ordered a veggie plate that included these yellow peppers and I went for it. I was pleasantly surprised and would definitely eat them again.
Had these in a salad when I was out to lunch and they were OK. I didn't hate them but I leave gushing "OH MY GOODNESS BEETS, I CAN'T WAIT TO EAT YOU AGAIN!" I know they can be prepared in different ways so I'd be interested to see how they can be different. Honestly I didn't think they had much flavor.
I went to Kentico Cuban Grill with my friend Liz for dinner last month and one of the desserts was "Guava Shells & Cream Cheese". We wanted to go with something fruity to get our sweets without a mound of calories and braved it by ordering these. Guava is really sweet and almost had a mango-ish texture but different. I loved it and would definitely have it again!
This week I went a food demo that Lauren from Vegology put on at Ellwood Thompson's on Cooking Vegetarian Proteins. Sometimes I feel like a bad vegetarian because I don't eat a lot of cool things out there for protein. Mainly, I eat a lotttt of beans. I've had tofu before I'm still debating my stance on it. However, I was excited to finally try Tempeh (pronounced tem-pay) and learn more about it. Like tofu, it's also a soy product but is completely different with a meaty texture and earthy, nutty taste.
She made us her Chili Maple Glazed Tempeh and it was out of this world! I'm thinking I might try and whip it up this week and also roast some brussel sprouts (another new food!).

Have you tried any of these foods, what are your thoughts on them?
