These eating habits will make you a more flexible, adaptable, proficient, and ultimate eater.
What's for breakfast? Oatmeal? Eggs? Whey? Cereal? Why always the same foods?
Why can't you eat a steak or a salmon fillet for breakfast? A can of tuna fish? Rice, spaghetti, steamed collard greens? Cucumbers? Lima beans or a hearty stew? Many cultures do this. So should you.
Pinto beans, blueberries, and spinach together at last! Kiwi fruit with cauliflower. Frozen broccoli thawed in your hot oatmeal. Buffalo meat and banana. Garlic with everything. Mix foods you normally wouldn't mix. You'll be surprised at what tastes decent together. Think of this as an exercise in creativity and flexibility of palate preference, rather than an exercise in trying to disgust people.
I also reflected on this topic recently with a neat little evening dessert omelet.
I use to steam all my vegetables, now I eat almost all of them raw unless I buy them frozen, then I'll typically throw them in the blender and make a shake. For example: Learning to eat an eggplant like an apple is pretty cool (well, I think it is!) An ability like this is also especially useful if you're stranded on an island with nothing but eggplants to eat! I'm also a fan of not cooking meat too long. These habit stemmed from laziness but inevitably, I accepted it was probably for the better; Because in most cases the enzymatic and biochemical riches found in foods become ruined by many preferred cooking methods.
