The Struggles of Being a Fussy Eater

I guarantee you won't know someone that's as fussy as me when it comes to food. I could probably name about 10 things that I would actually eat and maybe 3 things when it comes to eating out.

Since the age of 5, I've been a vegetarian. Most people don't believe me when I say this ... I always get asked the question; what made you decide that as such a young age? I put it down to the fact that I was a huge animal lover which, I still am, but I was obsessed at that age. I use to love watching Jamie Oliver and cooking programmes despite the fact I knew I would never eat something like that. 

The smell, appereance and textures of food use to make me feel sick. To the point where my mum had to pick me up from school one day because i was sick over a girl eating grapes. Maybe I was a bit extreme? Haha. 

To sum up my diet, I would say that all I eat it beige food. No sauces, no frills, no colour. Just beige. 

My parents use to and still do worry sick about me. In the past I've had many of physical and psychological tests to find out what's wrong with me. Non of which amounted to much apart from it bein a behavioural problem. 

So throughout my school years and now my teens, I have struggled to take full advantage of social things like eating out with friends. Although the smell and look of some foods appeal more to me now than ever. I've just got this hangup that I'm going to be sick if I try something new. 

 My next step it to have hypnotherapy which I'm really looking into at the moment. Apart from that I'm a bit lost on what else to do because it's such a big thing for me to try something new. 

So I'll keep you updated on what's going on and what my next steps are with my diet!

(my friend found this photo on Instagram and had to send it to me! This would be my absolute heaven. Maybe without the pepperoni haha)
