whats the matter with you?!
who let slip that he hated fruit and veg. The next day he arrived in his office to find his desk and drawers overflowing with brocolli, carrots, cauliflours, apples, pears, grapes. I've never heard such language or seen such withering anger in all my years.
my scottish flatmate never eats veg. it's just like, fish fingers and potatoes, maybe some spaghetti hoops.
Inbetween the ages of 10-15 my brother lived off a diet of which 95% consisted of weetabix or cornflakes (or both) for breakfast; strawberry jam on whitebread for lunch; beans, mash (instant mash only) and luncheon meat for tea.
the only things i ate were peanut butter sandwiches and spaghetti bolagnese.
then i used to leave home at 7am and get back at 5:30pm and be SO FREAKIN' HUNGRY i'd eat anything. that's the way to sort out fussy eaters. starve 'em.
My mother would be in prison if she'd starved us.
Ma had to fight to get me out the front door
Bawlin' all the way 'bout her abandoning me
Lost control of myself and drenched my shorts in wee
Had to go back home and missed that first day
So they all made friends and got together to play
I turned up the next day after more botheration
Found that I was alone in the educational nation
Wow. That got pretty emotional pretty quickly. Hungover me is MOROSE.
I especially like the use of the word 'botheration'. I've never seen it written down before.
I was trying to make it work with the Fresh Prince theme.
They're all the same so pick whichever you know.
buttered white bread with tomato sauce
and beef supernoodles
until the advent of freezer shops in the mid to late 70's, Scotland only ever had potatoes, carrots and turnips.
Unfortunately, this was the first combination of veg to be packed together, thereby consolidating their crushing hold on the nation's tastebuds until well into the 80's when the great Brassica wars were fought in the central belt.
That's what's the matter with me.
i just can't stand the taste.
It really pisses me off. Shit like this:
I don't eat mushrooms.
I don't like onion unless it's cut into tiny pieces.
I don't like tomato/carrot/whatever unless it's cooked.
I don't like cabbage unless it's par-boiled and then sauted in saffron butter.
Grow up, yeah?
Delicious, tasty, wholesome veg > slithery funghi with gills
The tinier onion is chopped, the better chance it has of being cooked - and who likes part-cooked onion?. You obviously never had a mum who chucked massive lumps of it in everything and got deafended by the slimy crunch of teatime.
And cabbage is a pretty unappealing prospect until it's been fried a bit in something.
And I can understand why you wouldn't be that keen on munching funghi, although I am.
she looks very ill.
Fruit is great
On sunday, T went to sainsburys and got 2 packs of clementines for £2.50 and a bag on monkey nuts for 66p. I ate my way through all of it. ALL.OF.IT.
I feel like eating some pomegranates today.
why should anyone give a fuck what anyone else eats? What business is it of yours?
Just so you can judge them?
its like "I don't like xxxxx, anyone who does must have something wrong with them" and vice versa.
Just a "line up and be judgemental" thread, without actually considering that there may be issues with the person that simpletons cannot understand rather than just "whats the fucks the matter with you"
I think its great that we are all different. perhaps i shold start a thread... "Judgemental people, what the fucks up with you?"
Would certainly provide a paradox and some interesting reading :-)
taking this piss out of you.
it's nothing to get worked up about
are you a candidate for Freaky Eaters? I love Freaky Eaters.
but he had to water them down because they were too spicy? :D:D:D Freaky Eaters is amazing!
my favourites were:
the guy who only ate brown sauce
the guy who only ate crisps and cheese, but in a variety of innovative combinations.
The best Freaky Eaters was the cheese and crisps guy. He had all these various meals which only contained cheese and crisps. One was just a packet of crisps, emptied onto a plate, with a load of grated cheese on top. Another one was really thick slices of cheese, and then he'd push Hula Hoops into the cheese :-)
fruit and veg related puns based upon "don't have a cow" or "don't be so upset", but regretably failing.
help me out here.
i got oranges though, so it's ok :D
I used to be well fussy about food. Then I moved out of my folks' house, and ate pretty much nothing but frozen pizza. Then I got bored of that and started to eat properly/learn to cook.
So basically, I just didn't like my mother's cooking :D
Veg > Fruit though for me, I'm still not that bothered on fruit.
please enlighten me as to explain why you think that not eating fruit and veg makes you immature?
Does smoking make me immature too? Is it just down to actually wanting to look after ones health?
Just trying to get a handle on this hypocrisy
Probably too much sugar in your diet.
or can you not?
It's just a bit indicative of having a child like attitude towards food, "urgh, I'd rather die than eat cabbage - I want sweets!". It's usually not even rooted in how fruit and veg taste, more based on some culinary fear of the unknown and a weird apprehension of how they look. Most fussy eaters probably havn't even tried half the things they claim not to like.
I'm basing this on conversations I've had with fussy eaters about food, and thinking back to my own attitudes when I was young.
As you get older/start looking after yourself more, you really should snap out of it.
I am playing devils advocate whilst eating my banana
Gotta catch em all
vegetables less so but I'll eat most of them. I think the difference between the two is that fruit is usually nice by itself but vegetables need to be cooked a certain way and aren't all that by themselves. Parsnips are lovely though, raw carrots (topical) are excellent aswell. I've always eaten them because it's not much of a chore and it does me some good, never been an overly fussy eater and usually clear my plate unless there's something I simply can't stand (this is a rarity).
I'm not health conscious at all, anyone who says they eat them for health reasons but smokes/drinks loads/takes drugs is an utter mong.
my mum put them on my plate, I ate them. Despite not liking (or particularly disliking) most vegetables eating them is second nature and not much of an effort.
so obviously I don't believe that.
...anyway, don't you think it's a little stupid to actively go about doing something healthy but also do things that are very unhealthy. Eating vegetables vs taking coke for example isn't exactly a good balance, I can't see the vegetables making up for all the damage you'd be doing to yourself.
I'm sure some people do both and don't really think about it but seemingly health conscious people that do very unhealthy things aswell irritate me.
Like fuck I do. Booze, skag and huge fuck-off cream cakes it is.
and also have a shit diet. so eating veg for health reasons is fair enough, unless they're all preachy about it in which case they can bog off.
To an extent, doing healthy things can balance out the actions of doing unhealthy things. Where the example of doing coke would come in I have no idea, but it works better with smoking: smoking raises your cancer risk, so perhaps you can lower it with eating healthily.
Of course it would be better if people only did the positive things, but sometimes the things that are bad for you are hell of fun.
but I fucking love vegetables. Since I bought a steamer, I've had pretty big portions of carrots, assorted beans and broccoli about five times a week. And I boiled a cabbage in the water I'd used to boil a joint of bacon last week ... fucking bliss. I love odd-looking veggies too. I ate some relative-to-the-cauliflower thing the other day that looked like a lizard's head. It looked much more awesome than it tasted, but still IT LOOKED LIKE A LIZARD'S HEAD!
or like, a decomposing sheeps head or something. MMMM
Well, they're very nice.
tell me more
par boil, dry, into flour then beaten egg and then into seasoned breadcrumbs and shallow fry until golden brown. They are pretty special (if you like celeriac).
If so I started a whole thread about them before.
I'd never seen one until about three weeks ago, when I was dragged (CLASS WAR!) into a Waitrose by my girlfriend. I wandered off my own but the minute she heard someone scream 'OH MY GOD THIS CAULIFLOWER LOOKS LIKE A DINOSAUR!' she knew exactly where to find me.
because if you don't snack a lot then there's not many meals that include fruit. but veg? my problem is that i don't know what to replace veg with in a meal.
Nothing better than eating meat and two meats.
is that they are too often used as a substitute for meat. I don't want big chunks of fucking aubergine in my lasagne, gawps.
ideally they need to be fried until they're all soft and slimy. Otherwise they'll just taste kinda bitter and generally a bit shit.
because most are disgusting. Fruit is amazing though.
and food they like will be based on the diet they grew up with so dont think its weird for some people to not like certain things. Also people have different amounts of different taste receptors so something that tastes nice to you may be very different for them. Thirdly some vegetables are genuinely vile (celery for instance)
