And We’re Starting With…Egg Yolk

I’m about to have my first egg yolk since March 6.

My 30 days are over, and after much deliberation, I’ve decided to slowly introduce foods I tested negative for back into my diet. Kind of excited, kind of nervous…

Mostly, remembering the last time I tried new foods. The one that sticks out to me most is when I tried green peppers for the first time, about 15 years ago.

“How do they taste?” my family asked, when I took my first bite.

“Like spoons. You know, how peppers smell like metal spoons right out of the dishwasher? This tastes like a spoon. Not in a bad way. Just in a spoon way. I kind of imagined it would taste like this.”

Of course, I was greeted with blank stares, because peppers don’t actually taste like spoons to most people, but hey. They did to me, and sometimes they still do.

Will this egg taste like spoons? Or like egg? Is it different to introduce a food I ate 4 months ago to a food I’ve never had before?

Stay tuned…


The egg yolk tasted remarkably like egg yolk. Delicious. A new taste! I have a renewed love for the blessing “shehechiyanu,” which is traditionally said before doing something new — Blessed is God, who has kept us alive, sustained us,  and brought us to this time.

And I feel ok. A little antsy, definitely nervous energy, but it’s been ten minutes and nothing is swelling or itching or blocking. Have a minor headache, but that could also be the nerves/lack of water since I woke up…

Egg yolk = success!
