Food I Refuse to Eat

I quite admire people who are happy to eat just about anything. I'm at the other end of the scale, with many different foods that I absolutely refuse to eat:
  1. Mushrooms - the taste, the texture, the smell... there is nothing good about mushrooms at all!
  2. Pine nuts - they always seem to sneak into all types of food, ruining what would otherwise be a nice meal
  3. Olives - every now and then I think that I've judged olives too harshly and decide to give them another try. Every time I regret it!
  4. Parsnips - nasty. Just nasty
  5. Celery - I especially hate eating celery by mistake when there's some hidden in a salad
  6. Shellfish - I think that any type of shell fish shouldn't really be considered a food
My list could go on, but I'll hand it over to you. What types of food never pass your lips?

1. Mayo - the smell alone makes me sick
2. Tuna from a can - grilled is good, canned is disgusting
3. Tomatoes - ok this is a bit of a weird one: I love fresh salsa, I love tomato sauce, but I hate a big fresh, juicy, bright red tomatoe on my sandwich
4. Soggy Bread - oh this grosses me out so.

LOL you're funny. I'm in the other hand a huge fan of mushroom. I love it!

But I hate celery, pine nuts and olives too. Plus a few other foods that taste icky to me but liked by people.

I am not fussy at all with my food really! I don't eat olives really. I'll eat them on a pizza but never just alone, from the jar. I just love all food!

01. Coriander - often not listed on a menu, but I can't eat a dish that contains it.
02. Crab - never tried it, but I can't even sit near someone eating it because of the smell.

I was the pickiest child in the world. I'm about 3000x better than I was, but there are still a few holdovers...

1. Green beans. I start gagging the minute I smell them.
2. Mayo. WHY?!?!
3. Lobster. I might eat it, but only once the meat is completely disconnected from its body and the body is nowhere near me.
4. Skim milk. NOPE! If I wanted milk-flavored water, I'd pour a glass of water in the dregs of my 2%!

Zmaga said...

I do the same thing with olives! And always regret it, yes.

EJ said...

Pickled beetroot... the sheer though of it makes me gag. Blergh!

Capers. So wrong.

Cauliflower... I hate it when people cook broccoli an cauliflower together. Why must they taint the broccoli so??

* Animal products of any kind: beef, poultry, fish, wild game, dairy, eggs and anything that is derived from animals through the rendering process.
* Mushrooms
* Bananas
* Cooked eggplant
* Apples (this one makes me a little sad because so many things have apple in them and I've never been able to digest them properly, mostly because of their high levels of pectin)

The funniest thing about this post! I like all the things on your list of dislikes (lol), except parsnips since I've never tried.
1.Onions - create such gross breathe
2.Snails - don't even want to try
3.Water Chestnuts - although I am overcoming this one
Thats it, I really love food!

-Oatmeal--like above commenters with olives: I give it another chance after 5-10 years, and it's never improved.
-Anchovies--just thinking about them gives me the shivers!
-Gummy bears.
