How often do you try new foods or recipes?

I don't try new recipes that often but I will make up my own fairly often. Today's food experiment wasn't so good. I have decided that goat cheese is disgusting. I wanted to try something different so I bought it instead of feta cheese. I made a wrap with tuna, chopped onions, apples, avocado, a little mayo and then I ruined it with the nasty goat cheese. I still ate it but it would have been so much better with feta cheese. The goat cheese has a nasty after taste to me.

Anyway I try new stuff all the time. If I see a fruit or veggie at the grocery store I've never had I like to try it.

I try new recipes quite a bit. Not all of them turn out to be ones that I will fix again though. New/different foods on the other hand....I don't do that very often.

I love trying new recipes and foods. Especially since starting low carb. I've discovered I like brussel sprouts and some other stuff I didn't used to like.

Thanks to Bokkechick for my siggy.

I try new recipes for us usually once a week. Sometimes they are the greatest ideas I have ever come up with as far as recipes and other times they are fails Fails are few and far between, but I had one tonight dealing with a chicken dish, and I learned my lesson!

I try new recipes quite frequently here lately. I did a 21 day detox program last year and it had all kinds of food on it that I "thought" I didn't like but was surprised that I really did like them.. now I eat them ALL the time! So I decided that I would start trying new things (or things I think I don't like) all the time.

I do like to try new things but I am horribly picky so I won't end up liking most things. DH though likes the experiments though. Kids not so much.
