Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

I was a picky eater growing up, but looking back, I’m baffled at a few of my food aversions. One of which was muffins. Who doesn’t like muffins?! Three year-old Sarah, that’s who! Luckily, it wasn’t long before I finally found the courage to try a nibble of a strange looking lemon poppy seed muffin, and you know what?! I actually liked it!

While trying a new food was a small act of bravery as a child, the thought reminded me to continue taking risks and trying new things as an adult. Even though you may have convinced yourself you won’t like something (like little Sarah was convinced she didn’t like lemon poppy seed muffins) push yourself to explore new things. You never know when you might discover something delicious or uncover a new passion.
