I have never been a healthy eater. I am extremely picky when it comes to food and have always considered burgers and chocolate to practically be their own food groups. I mean, who doesn’t like chocolate? I know. I know. There actually are people out there who don’t like chocolate. Honestly? I don’t think I trust those people. Not liking chocolate is unnatural. Anyway, salad is one of those foods I have always had an aversion to. The list of those foods that I avoid at all costs also includes broccoli and cottage cheese. However, my plan for “Being a Badass” and challenging myself to do things I normally would not do had me making the decision to try to learn to love salads (inspired by Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes). So, on Wednesday January 6th, I tried salad for the first time in my life. It made me gag. Literally. I did eat about half of the bowl, but it was difficult to do so. However, as multiple friends have told me that caesar salad dressing isn’t always the best, I do plan to make a few more attempts to develop a fondness for the leafy green stuff. I will keep you posted, but this was the first step out of my comfort zone in 2016. Though eating a salad seems like a minor thing to do, it was a major thing for me. It was proof that I am taking my plan for “Being a Badass” seriously.
