I may have mentioned before that I am not much of a healthy eater. That is why I started running in the first place, to be able to eat all of my junk and still wear my size 0 pants. I blame my junk food love on me being the youngest child. To say that I was a brat growing up would be an understatement. :)
I remember last summer trying a strawberry at my friend Heather's house. Heather and my other girl friends were shocked that I had never tried a strawberry or any other fruit for that matter. Guess what? I loved the strawberry and now I have been known to eat a pound of them in one sitting.
The love for this strawberry lead me to try blueberries, raspberries, pinneapple, grapes, kiwi, oranges, and apples. Sure, I know what you are thinking, how could I possibly make it so long in life without trying these items. It is called cookies, candy, ice cream, and pizza!
I still do not like bananas. Okay, actually I have never bit into a banana but do not think I will like them. I might try one over the weekend. Maybe.
Last weekend I was in the produce aisle of the grocery store. This is a new thing for me and I feel as though I do not belong. I was looking at fruit to see what I should try. I decided to grab a few peaches. I had no clue how to eat a peach, but I thought they might taste good. So the other night I grabbed a peach out of the fridge and cut it up. I was surprised to find out it was not the texture I thought it would be. It was more the texture of an apple. I thought hmm, I guess this is how they are instead of soft.
The next day at work I asked one of the girls if she eats peaches and how she does it. She told me that they are messing to eat if you eat them like an apple. I explained to her the texture of my peach. She asked me if it were fuzzy on the outside. It was not.
Guess what? I bought and tried a necterine and not a peach.
