Hi everyone! I hope you're all doing well! During my winter break, I tried some foods, and while some of those foods weren’t entirely new, it wasn’t easy for me. This inspired me to write about how to prepare to try something new. One thing I like to do is connect the food to something I already like. For example, my dad made mashed potatoes. I love French fries, so I told myself “It’s not as scary to try this, because it probably tastes similar to French fries!”. So, I was able to try the mashed potatoes, and I liked the taste! I wasn’t a big fan of the texture, but I was proud of myself for trying something new! Hopefully this helps the next time you or your loved one is nervous to try something! Have a great week!
