So one thing I have learned so far with trying new foods is that I do not know what I think about a new food until after I have tried it several times. The first few times I try it I am really just concentrating on swallowing and keeping it down. Avacados are one that I have been working on for a while. So we have been bringing avacados home and I have been trying them one small step at a time. They still have an oily, buttery and creamy texture with a bit of a nutty rich flavor but I am more used to it now. It is still wierd to me that the guacamole has slightly different greens and textures throughout.
I have surprisingly also progressed to making my own simple guacamole from avacados. I went from trying a very small piece of the avacado, to helping to prepare the avacados, to making my own guacamole. Getting involved in the preparation process helps even though I am still uncomfortable handeling any new food. It helps to know how the guacamole is put together because I do not like the chunkier texture of the guacamole but after preparing it myself I can see how and why it is chunkier after you cut it up. I still don’t eat much guacamole on a chip at once but it is more than ever before which for me is progress.
Here is my very simple guacamole recipe:
- Two avacados
- Lemon juice from half a lemon
- Garlic powder
- Salt to taste
