As I sit at a restaurant and order my last meal of the holiday I am looking through the menu and realise that I don’t seem to have as much trouble in knowing what to order like I did at the beginning of the holiday. It’s amazing what you can learn in a few weeks.
I have found this holiday that I have had salad twice a day. I think it’s because that’s all I felt I could eat. It’s worked out that I have had about 40 salads in almost 3 weeks.
It wasn’t however as bad as it sounds. Some days I was very happy to order salad, sometimes I really didn’t want to but I was glad I did once I got it. I have to say I haven’t had one bad salad throughout the holiday.
What I have enjoyed is all the different flavours. Sometimes I was eating food that I didn’t even know what it was. That is totally out of character for me. I usually never eat food that I don’t know. I don’t know why, it’s just how I have always been.
I plucked up the courage and tried one. They tasted so much different to tomatoes which surprised me. I thought they tasted really sweet and I think they are going to be added to my salads from now on.
This holiday has been hard with my food choices but it has been very rewarding. I am going home with a whole load more flavours that I can add to my meals.
