So what are some of your favorite foods, and what foods can't you stand. How have you tastes changed over the years?
I love food, so much so I choose to make it my career. I love food that makes me feel good, happy, and healthy. I like pretty much all kinds of food and love to try new things. The only food I don’t like is shrimp, I simply cannot eat it without gagging, the texture is just wrong—all slimy and crunchy, bleck! Texture is my down fall with food, I am not a picky eater but I am picky about how food is prepared. If meat is too chewy I can’t get it down, because of that I rarely eat meat and could easily be a vegetarian.
Some of my absolute favorite foods are avocados, gorgonzola cheese, crab, salmon, yams, and dessert (any and every kind) . Back in college I was pretty extreme in my eating and would not eat treats or junk food. I even told Wade on our first date that I wouldn’t go for slurpies. Since then I have realized it is all about moderation and I have embraced my sweet tooth—maybe too much!I love that food and meals offer bonding time as families. I enjoy making meals for my family and sitting down together and sharing our day. I really feel that healthy eating has to be established in the home, early on in life and I try to promote healthy eating with Wyatt every day. I also like that food can offer such excitement and joy in life, and I love sharing those moments with my family: making a special meal that celebrates a holiday, or just a warm traditional Sunday dinner, and I really love making cookies for those I love.
