Check it out! One of you took the June Challenge! This is Natalie’s avocado, which she made into guacamole. Natalie says:
My new food wasn’t terribly interesting, but it was a major fear food. Before developing an eating disorder I LOVED avocados. Chop one in half, add some salt and pepper, give me a spoon, and I’d be a happy camper. Sadly, they now scare the shit out of me—fat content and whatnot. I challenged myself last night in honor of your challenge to have some guacamole with my bean burrito, and it was delish. and I didn’t die. So all is well in the world. And who knows, maybe soon I’ll be snacking on avocados again.
Natalie! We’re so proud of you! It takes a lot of courage to fight a food fear, when your brain has decided that the thing you really want to eat will only harm you. Congratulations, and may your future hold many more avocados.
Let us know when you take the June Challenge! Be adventurous! Food is wonderful.
