As a kid I didn't eat many veggies. I always had a reason, most of them had to do with color. Yes, to my embarrassment, I often turned my nose up at a food because I didn't like the color of it. While I love the color purple and red, I didn't think you should eat a vegetable grown underground that was any color but orange. Which means I didn't try beets, turnip, rutabaga, parsnips, radish until I was an adult. Sadly I didn't even consider where potatoes came from since french fries didn't remind me of a veggie in any way.
Here is what I like to do now, I like to introduce those I know to try a new food. I've tried many new foods, new ways to prepare them, or new recipes to find that I love them. I've tried a few that I didn't. I wouldn't know unless I tried.
I've heard it often that you should give everything a try once. (at least when it comes to foods). While I was as stubborn kid, I don't want to classify myself as a stubborn adult.
Delicious Roasted Turnip- Even a Kid will Eat
- 2-3 turnip, peeled and cut into bite size pieces
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- salt and pepper
Place the cut turnip on a pan, drizzle with olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 30-45 minutes. (could be longer if you cut your pieces large) Simple but sooooo soooo sooo good.
Here is my challenge. Send me proof that you tried some new food this week. It could be a food you like but prepared in a new way. I always love new recipes that you've tried for me. Take me up on my challenge. Hit comment below to show me proof.
To Your Best Health,
As a side note. I cut up the turnip and Coach Dean cooked them up for me. He makes dinner each night so every once in a while I help out.
