Avacados become Guacamole

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

    Hi. First, congrats on having success adding some new foods. I had to comment because I’m an ARFID sufferer too and I’ve been able to slowly add a lot of new foods but Avocado is not one of them! I’ve had it but I’m still not very comfortable with it yet.

    Nice write up. This isn’t a food I expected you to try, but a great one to add to your diet. I like that your doing some of the prep work to make it with several ingredients.

    Jessica,
    That is great that you tried guacamole! An avacado is one of the most nutritious foods so that is a good one to get used to eating. I am very proud of you for trying something new! I hope you keep experimenting and wish you good luck on your food journey!
