Mighty Goal Monday: Try Something New

#11 MGM: Try Something New

Nowadays, I find myself to be in a routine where I know what I am going to eat, what time I am going to eat, and where I am going to eat. There is very little time in my schedule to change up my eating habits, and honestly, that is driving me crazy. While an undergraduate and graduate student I found time to try something new, whether it be a new restaurant or a new food dish. This is something I hope to change this week.

This week I challenge you to get outside of your comfort zone and try something new.

This #MightyGoalMonday can apply to anything in your life really. This post will mainly focus on trying something new with nutrition รคs the main focus. However, you can also apply this to working out, your social life, or your career. Take this goal and run with it.

Why we need to try something new

Life can get boring

If we do the same thing every day for the rest of our lives, odds are we are going to get board. By trying something new, no matter how small we can spice up our life some. No matter how big or small our new change or adventure may be, it is always needed to get out of a rut.

You can discover something new that can potentially change your life

Do you have a hobby or passion that you did not always have? Odds are you took a chance and tried something new which makes my point perfectly. Without trying something new, you might not discover how much you really enjoy something that can change your life.

Nutrition & Trying Something New

Always Something New to Try

One of my favorite things about nutrition is there will always be something new to try. Unless you are a world traveler and have eaten everything there is to offer. Odds are that is not the case. Which means there are great food items that you have not yet tried. Also, when it comes to food, there will always be something new coming out that will grab our attention.

Cooking always has something to offer

When it comes to cooking, I am not the best in the world. Honestly, I am known to burn most of my main dishes, just ask anyone of my friends or family members. But that doesn’t stop me from trying to make something new in the kitchen. There are so many recipes out there that there is always something new to try. Just simply figure out what you are craving, search the web or Pinterest (my go-to for recipes) and start putting your skills to work. {Need some help with your cooking skills, check out a previous #MightyGoalMonday – Explore Your Cooking Skills for helpful tips.}

Ways you can try something new

Join the one-bite club

The one-bite club is something I learned about while completing my dietetic internship where I was mainly working with children. While doing food introduction presentations, all kids had to try at least one bite of each food item. After learning about this, I adopted the motto to my everyday life. If you just focus on trying one bite of a food item, you can discover new food items.

Be adventurous while traveling

I just got back from taking a mini-vacation to Charleston, SC. Lets just say I didn’t want to come back. But when I was there, I made sure to try something new. Since I am from the midwest, fresh fish is not something we get often, therefore, I choose to try a new kind of fish while visiting. It is in my experience to ask the locals and servers what they recommend since they know more about the food than I do. In the end, no matter where you may be traveling, always try something new because who knows when the next time will be when you’re back in the same area.

Because this #MightyGoalMonday can apply to anything in your life, think of something you have been putting off trying. Make it happen this week or plan to make it happen very soon. Get outside of your comfort zone and try something new!

      In my family we have a rule when we are on vacation we can not eat at a restaurant we have back home. It helps open your eyes to so many new things.
