I’m shocked that bean sprouts went over so well this week. I bought them on impulse when a trip to Whole Foods yielded nothing out of the ordinary for our 52-week challenge. Hard to believe, but we’re 40 weeks into our challenge. Meaning 40 new fruits and vegetables under our belts, making it slim pickings when I head to the grocery store. But bean sprouts were new, and as much as their bland color and flavor doesn’t appeal to me, the kids shared a different opinion. They were hands down the most well-received vegetable in our challenge to date.
ME: What are these?
EMMA: A kind of turkey.
ME: Yeah it kind of does look like the turkey gobbler.
ME: What does it smell like?
LAUREN: Emma ate all of hers.
LAUREN: More for me too.
ME: Slow down guys, you’re not supposed to eat it yet.
ME: It kind of smells like water to me. What about you Lauren?
LAUREN: I didn’t smell it yet. Wait, what are these mommy? I want more.
ME: Wow, you guys are fighting over them. You can each have your own bowls, I have a huge bag of them.
ME: These are called bean sprouts.
LAUREN: Oooh, I love bean sprouts!10 comments
