Not a Peach...

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.

This is too funny! I can't imagine missing out on all that fruit! If you liked the nectarine, you'd probably like peaches too, as long as the fuzz doesn't both you. You might try plums too!

Wait...who are you & what have you done with my sweet friend Keri???

o.m.g. I can't believe you were physically wandering around the produce aisle!? I am truly amazed! See what you have been missing out on all these years?!

I'm so proud of you for trying all this new fruit!

There is no fruit like a banana! Go for it.
