Friday Bowl- Kiwi Pear

Kiwi Pear is the taste of this Fridays Bowl. I am not a fan of pears as I think they have a soapy taste. But I gave it a try and totally enjoyed the fresh taste the combination with the yogurt. I’m starting to think everything taste good in yogurt.

Yogurt has always been a food I've ignored because I always thought it was bitter and tangy, but adding fruits and other flavors has made me learn to like it more every day.

I have decided to reserve each Friday to share some of my creative food bowls. I have been eating these at least 4 times a week and I feel great. They are easy, healthy and fun. This is part of my new "Clean Eating" Plan. Wish me Luck.

Pepino Melon

I have been trying new foods lately. I am not afraid to try anything that’s edible. There are not many foods I do not like. There are several I do not like enough to eat all the time but still do not find them terrible.

Here is a cute little fruit I found called a Pepino Melon. 

Despite the name, a Pepino Melon is not really a melon at all. It is a fruit from a South America evergreen. It is actually related to a tomato or eggplant. 

They start out green and turn yellow once ripe. The skin is soft and rubbery and easy to cut and peel. I did not see any seeds or core in the center. 

I was pleasantly surprised by the taste and added it to my yogurt bowl. It had a unique taste somewhere between a pear and a honeydew.
Will I buy this again? I’m not sure. It was a little expensive for its size. 

What is a food you have recently tried for the first time?
