My New Year's resolution for 2013 is to eat a new fruit or vegetable every week for the year.
Last week was eggplant. I will never eat eggplant again.
This week was radish. I have never had a radish. Not even when my bagged lettuce sneaks them into my salad.
I always pick them out. (I also pick out the cabbage which I have never tried).
So...I got a little bag of the cutest radishes I could find. They must be good if they are cute, right?
Look how little he is on my salad plate.
I sliced one up after my mom said to try a small piece. She said they taste spicy and knows I hate spicy foods.
I really, really wanted to like radish. They are super cheap (less than $1 a bag!) and that way I could stop picking them out of my bagged lettuce.
But, I didn't like them. Not even a little bit. They taste like pepper. Pepper on a really gross vegetable. I tried two bites (isn't everyone proud of me?) and spit out the second.
So, week 2 is done. My hope is that after trying 52 different vegetables or fruits, I will like one or two. Eggplant and radish are NOT on the "like" list.
Next week? I am trying STAR FRUIT.
