Eating continues to be the most difficult sensory task for this woman on the autism spectrum.
To expand my palate, my husband and I take an approach very similar to the “food chaining” discussed by Primeau at Aspergers101.
It takes time for me to get used to an unfamiliar food, and it requires considerable fortitude to be willing to try new things. An experience that is already fraught with challenges on the basis of unfamiliar or unpleasant tastes or textures is further burdened by past experiences and prevalent social attitudes.
