Today’s #Autism and #SPD Victory: Overcoming Taste and Textures

Having just suffered a loss in the family this morning, I’m trying really hard to be positive.  Luckily, I didn’t have to look very far at all. 

Mr. Emmett John is drinking one of Daddy’s nasty smoothies.

This smoothie contained the following:

Blueberries
Mixed Berries
Banana
Kale
Oatmeal
Flax oil
Egg white
Skim Milk

When asked if it tasted good, Emmett replied “not exactly, but it’s good for my body”.

I have to admit, this particular smoothie was pretty gross, healthy but gross. Emmett drank his entire glass and still wanted more. 

Even more impressive to me was how he not only overlooked the taste but also the texture. It had the consistency of lumpy sand. 

My hats off to Emmett on this one.  Great job little man. 🙂

If it has the texture of lumpy sand, maybe you should call it not a smoothie but a sandy or a roughy. 🙂
