If you are a picky eater, you know what it’s like to have to go on a restrictive diet. So many options that would be available on that restrictive diet aren’t because you “don’t like it.” I am (or rather, was) one of the worst picky eaters. Most of the time, I’d say that I didn’t like a particular food simply because I’d never tried it. Shame on me!
After months of eating the same old things over and over and over again, I realized that I had to get over this pickiness, or I’d die of boredom on the SCD.
Little things, like putting fruit in my yogurt (which I’d never before found appealing) and trying shrimp scampi, have made a world of difference. I actually found a recipe for asparagus (I despise asparagus) that I might actually try! Once I got over my pickiness, the diet became ten times more delicious.
So, my advice to you picky eaters is this: STOP IT! (To quote Bob Newhart)
