Well, I gave myself zero points. There's nothing I won't eat on this list!! What about you?
I eat everything on that list but a few are only sparingly... Raisins, tofu and kombucha and ketchup.
My dad always told me that I would eat anything that didn't bite me first.
I eat everything on the list except oysters.
There 10 things on that list I will not eat and one thing I can not eat because the results of eating them hurt.
oysters and blue cheese.annnndddd maybe beets
I think I just found my next entree! Forget about oysters Rockafeller...
I think there is another aspect to being a "picky eater" or not.
sure you might like all these foods.
but will you eat a meal that isn't very tasty? we've all done it, mix the wrong veg, un/overcook something.
how much fuss will you give the cook, if the dish doesn't turn out good?
can you tolerate microwave TV dinners?
would you eat this!
There are six things on the list I won't eat, not cause I'm picky because I don't like it or it doesn't like me. One because I don't know what it is.......kombucha??
Adam I'd eat the sausage above if it was BBQ'd on toast with mustard! I also enjoy kraft dinner with weiners and weiners and beans.
Well i'm a picky eater now through no choice of my own ...pickles are out the list plus salad food unless I want to be a full time
Actually recent DNA research is showing that food preferrences are in our DNA not an actual choice that we make. So there are no picky eaters, if you do not like a particular food it isn't your fault. Think back to figure out who in your family also does not like that food. My Dad and I both loved fried beef liver but my mom (who cooked it for us) and my brother couldn't stand it and would eat fried baloney for supper instead.
I suppose DNA is a good culprit for my distaste of cantaloupe. During its peak season I will not go anywhere near it much less eat it. If I smell it in the store I will leave. If it is in a fruit salad I consider the salad contaminated. A skull and crossbones is an appropriate symbol to indicate its presence. Do you get the impression that I don't like cantaloupe?
Oh gee, why would I think that?
Summer mornings when I was a kid, Mom always had cantaloupe in the fridge.. my favorite breakfast food was half a cantaloupe sprinkled with salt ..napkin under chin and spoon in hand.
I am almost as bad but I can tolerate the sight and smell of it around me.
Toni, you just described how my mother ate cantaloupe and watermelon.
This thing with sprinkling salt on cantaloupe, and watermelon. I think that's just plain WEIRD. My ex did the same thing. I always thought it was a Southern thing because I came across more people who did that, once we moved to Tennessee.
Speaking of cantaloupe...in Australia, it was called rock melon. Makes sense I guess, because of its pebbly looking exterior. And we didn't eat it as a fruit, but rather as a dessert! It was a very common kids birthday treat. Rock melon, cut in half, seeds removed, with a big scoop of ice cream in the depression. My mum would serve it just that way after our dinner.
Kombucha is a fermented, slightly alcoholic, lightly effervescent, sweetened black or green tea beverage, consumed for its health benefits. Kombucha, which has been around for over 2,000 years, and made of live bacteria so it has enormous probiotic benefits.
It's become very popular in recent years as a health drink. It have the same health benefits as some of the more popular teas (like green teach and macha, for example)and is abundant with beneficial probiotics. Kombucha also contains antioxidants, can kill harmful bacteria and may help fight several diseases because it contains acetic acid, which is also abundant in vinegar.
