Parents are the most important support system a picky eater has. Today, I want to tell you about my mom, one of my biggest supporters.
One of the most common questions I get when eating with friends is "But I thought you liked [name food that I've eaten once in my life]? Why aren't you eating this?" Sometimes, picky eaters like me eat something in front of them just because they feel they have to, not because they actually like the food.
Sometimes my process goes right out the window because, well, I don’t know that I’m trying a new food. Though it doesn't happen often, it isn't unusual to be surprised by an unexpected ingredient, especially when eating at a restaurant. This happened (thankfully with success) during my first date with my now husband, Drew.
