How many instances you’ve had this conversation? You’re trying to get others to do something and they’re saying “No, I don’t like it.” You’re asking them how many times they’ve really given it a shot and they respond that they’ve never done it, but also emphasize they know they won’t like it. That is the way that many of us behave when it comes to food and especially healthy food.
The simple reality of eating healthily is that you ought to extend your selection a little bit. Many of us are going to be bellyaching attempting a new meal, but we prefer what we’re used to.
The things we’ve eaten for years have once been new to us too, and the issue is one of being set in our ways. You will get to know diversity more if you do something different every once and a while, and choose the same stuff you really want.
There is no point in banging your head against a brick wall trying to develop a taste for something you know you do not like. However, you’ll never know if you like something until you actually try it. This is particularly true of international cuisine. It may look different, but millions of people eat it regularly, so it can hardly be poisonous. Taking a leap of faith and trying a different food is not going to be the death of you, so why not try something different once a week and surprise yourself with how much you enjoy it?
