-Avocado (hadn't had since I was tiny!)
-Raw eggs. In everything.
Going to "discover" chicken livers tomorrow!
Mustard and raddish leaves are AWESOME. I get them at the local Asian stores. Can't find them anywhere else. Now, I look at solitary raddishes and think "what a waste of raddish leaf!"

Spaghetti squash. Just tried it a couple of days ago. I'm hooked. What a great food.
Rediscovered: butter. Honestly hadn't used butter in way too many years. And this led to...
Putting butter in coffee. This is so good that if I drank as much as I wanted, I'd be in permanent fat-ass mode. But it's such an amazing treat.
How could I almost forget grass fed beef shank? This is so good that it's almost sinful. A nice byproduct is that since it's cooked low and slow, the resulting broth, while not technically a bone broth, gelatinizes (is that a word?) nicely in the fridge and can be used to beef up veggies and other dishes.
Avocado oil. Again, it had been years since I had bottled oils in my home. When I learned how much bs olive oil there was, I decided to go with something less mainstream. I use it sparingly, but its uses are many and the flavor is gentle enough not to be intrusive.
butter, then ghee, now I've learned how to make ghee
Beef shanks, short ribs, arm roast...red meat in general, I've not eaten it in years
Coconut oil, rutabagas, plantains, kohlrabi.
Coconut butter or coconut cream concerntrate! I'm going to have to try plantains
Honestly, I've basically tried everything I currently now eat. The difference is that the amount is significantly higher. I've always been really creative in the kitchen and happy to try new things.
The only thing I found to be "new" is coconut flour because I never considered using it to bake before, so I never bought it.
Oh yes, I forgot about almond and coconut flour. Not that I use them much.....

The joys of grass fed meat cooked rare.
The yumminess that is raw dairy products (cow and goat).
Homemade pemmican, jerky, and pate.
Got over my squeem about offal.
All things coconut.
Sea veggies. (I was already into seafoods)
Kombucha as an occasional treat.
100% cocoa chocolate actually tastes awesome! Who would have thought!
I found a chayote squash in the grocery store tonight. I've never seen them before. I bought one. Now I just need to learn how to cook it! (Or not... I wonder how it tastes raw?)
