Post foods you don't like or this 'em or something.
See if I care.
i like everything really as long as it doesn't smell but i can't eat wheat, gluten, dairy, beef and lamb and their by-products.
just remembered i hate mushy peas but that's because they smell so bad so ignore this post
lots of things i genuinely can't eat because they will make me very ill
fuck off smee, stop being a dick
I think I was put off by the "earthiness" of them (ie they tasted of mud). More than that though they tended to still be quite firm and had no sauce or butter at all. Now I am grown up of course and had an actual nice new potato, they are fine.
MASSIVE OMISSION THERE
like broccoli, I only struggle to eat cauliflower because so often it's cooked REALLY badly.
cannot understand how anybody puts it in their mouth
i said that cause i reckon cucumber smells like willies probably
Ruining every single healthy premade lunchtime option ever along with tomato.
finally ate some a couple of years ago and it's really nice (y)
this includes all of Orange's little mates as well. Tangerine, Satsuma, the lot can get fucked.
Passable for cooking in certain dishes however, and rind or zest can be good in cocktails etc.
Also Chocolate Oranges. Good stuff.
fennel and possibly something else that I've forgotten.
would've been much better without the weird jelly stuff (egg caramel) in it.
It's nothing to be proud of
it seems GB would take some beating
i'm not choosing to avoid things though
he's mainly eating sweets and chips.
there's only 1 food I dislike.
I reckon Id be in with a chance for DiS's least discerning eater.
struggling to think of something I don't like or wouldn't be willing to try.
aside from out there stuff like chicken fetuses and maggot cheese etc...
There's stuff I would prefer not to eat (tinned ravioli is an unpleasant childhood memory) but I could eat it without kicking up a fuss.
I don't think I'd ever choose to cook turnip, swede, cauliflower or parsnip* for myself, but if someone served them to me I'd happily eat them.
Fussy eaters are the kind of sods who, when you ask them (before cooking them dinner) what they don't eat will reel off a list. People like that should really just do the decent thing and decline dinner invites. (Health/lifestyle reasons excepted, obvs).
*I'll make an exception for roast parsnips with a parmesan crust
i hate being the loser that brought food from home
i never expect other people to cook for me though
and if i go to stay at someones house i do a little shop
It is vegan though (I think?) and twiglets are alright, so maybe.
The thought, sight, smell, taste of m**k (including non-d***y variants) makes me extremely nauseous. Can't tolerate being near it. Same goes for y*****t, c***m etc. I have been able to eat things with d***y in the past if the taste / texture is heavily disguised. Don't eat dairy/eggs or meat any at the moment. I don't usually eat food other people have cooked/prepared unless it's a shop or a very clean looking cafe or restaurant. I usually bring my own cutlery and straws wherever I am. Don't eat anything past the date on the packet. Don't eat anything out of the freeezer other than peas. Don't eat anything that's been in a microwave. Don't eat anything spicy. Don't eat most things from tins (exceptions: chopped tomatoes, chickpeas).
As for specific foods? Atm, I won't eat meat or fish, d***y, eggs (eurgh), pears, b*****s, mango, nectarines, plums, apricots, dried fruit, sweetcorn, asparagus, mushrooms, avocados, beetroot, chillies, lentils, beans, tofu, noodles, pasta that isn't penne, pesto, brown bread (unless v. seeded), almonds and related (eg, marzipan), fondant icing, marmite, marmalade, ryvita type things, soreen.... you get the idea, yeah?
or question over storage / hygiene etc. Like, if I find something in the fridge with mould on then then I'll throw everything in the fridge out. And I won't eat apples with bruises.
Also, nothing soya. And no sweets that aren't chocolate (like, boiled, jelly, chewy etc). No to actual jelly as well. Don't drink tea, or white wine, or smoothies, or most things.
How about rigatoni or something like that?
but judging from google images I'd probably try it. Looks a bit big though.
And with pasta it needs to be only just cooked so that it's not at all soft.
I usually cook penne until it's almost as soft as mush, then eat it with a big bowl of milk.
dislike of certain foodstuffs is learned behaviour rather than genetic. He is a very clever guy.
Still think it's a load of bollocks
You think you can have a genetic predisposition for disliking broccoli or whatever? Madness!!!
Its easier to list the things i do eat. . Used to have to have foods not touching on plates for most of my childhood. Mainly sauces and textures and smells and the looks of things- i just wouldn't acknowledge its existence. onions are the main one yet i love the flavour. TEXTURES MAAAAAN. (Ive got better in my 20s but obviously i would rather never mention it and try to blend into the passable normal eating society)
your breath stinks of poo though
hot chocolate makes your breath smell like chocolate you know?
and it turns out she can only stomach white bread and ribena.
can't even have white bread mate
it's got gluten and wheat in
ribenas probably got barley in
i can eat everything EXCEPT those that contain the allergens gluten, wheat and lactose/milk.
for fucks sake why does this keep happening to me
it won't remember MY login details but it will remember his...? this is MY COMPUTER
has started signing me into fluffy's account automatically when i turn my computer on. for the last four months it required me to log in every single time i went on the site, even though i click the 'remember me'.
to clear this up:
don't LIKE things that have smells that make me gag (mushy peas, boiled cauliflower). don't like greasy food
can't EAT stuff that makes me very ill (see above)
i dunno what you're talking about cause you probably don't season your food and eat sandwiches
The only ones I like are from the chip shop in my hometown, all other chips/fries are gross and dry and shit ughhhhh (will eat them on occasion if necessary but really don't like them)
Except Jammy Dodgers and Party Rings. Dry as 3 day old dogshit in August
Except gravy if gravy is a condiment.
ESPECIALLY burger sauce (actually terrified of it, can't be near it/see it bleughhh)
Think I'm done now.
Unlucky for you nobs. More for us.
yeah, two of the best foods
I tend to avoid the furry fruit.
(waits for ...............)
it's all great
Even writing the word makes me feel queasy
I've seen people on here before get pretty intolerant/nasty when eating habits come up.
brusma will back me up though, and a finer source you won't find.
presented with *that* ATP breakfast
let it go man. let it go.
The only meat I can handle is rump steak, but only if it's thick and very well done. Some restaurants do a pretty lousy job and serve it thin and medium regardless, or two put thin steaks on top of each other to make it look thick. And, okay I don't mind grated cheese on jacket potatoes or chips, or Greek cheese with salad. But on its own? Yeuck.
lemongrass, ruiner of things that would probably be quite nice without it.
prawns bigger than a 50p coin
excess of sauce/butter in any sandwich
like if they're reduced right down into sauces and stocks im okay (less so when i was younger) but anything else is a no-go. i used an onion in my own cooking for the first time earlier this year when i made a ragu, and only done it again once. my sister chopped them for me ha.
see also: spring onions, shallots, leeks, any other onionic thing really.
also don't do mushrooms but tons of people have said that and im less vitriolic about them.
baba ganoush i guess. Oh and cranberries
I'm such a complex personality
The main one is when they haven't tried said food since they were about 8.
Then if they do try something they take a tiny bit and screw their face up all ready to say they don't like it. Try that with any food and you won't enjoy it.
Then people who don't like, say, coffee - they will never try the good stuff, only a sip of cheap crappy instant or something. Try nice coffee and you might like it. Similarly if you don't like sprouts, don't try Great Aunt Edna's overboiled ones, have some chopped up and fried with bacon or something.
Last one - just fucking grow a pair. When I was a child there were things I didn't like. As I grew up I started trying them, and liking them. Some things I didn't like that much, but I just ate them anyway and turns out I now like them. I thought olives were horrible, I love them now. If someone else is cooking and you refuse to eat it because it has touched a mushroom, just fucking eat it. That is just rude.
Food allergies aside, it's highly embrassing as an adult to be fussy about food to this extent, so long as it's fresh obviously. Hate squeamish eaters, they tend to be really prissy and boring.
I've got to go out to a lecture now but I'll just leave this here http://www.pastemagazine.com/blogs/lists/2012/02/9-musicians-discuss-chronic-illnesses.html?p=4 (and fyi, I'm not nearly that bad, but a lot of it certainly rings true) and maybe you can all have a think about what you're saying xxx
i know about mental illness. I only ate foods tahht were orange for 18 months. Which was m ainly wotsits.
I should have expanded allergies to encompass mental haealth issues, but still- there comes a time when you get help for stuff like this.
but a lot of it rings true. Fortunatly I've got a lot better with this kind of thing as a adult but the idea of being in a situation where I won't have control of what food I can eat can still fill me with dread.
It was quite comforting really, especially when you get keyboard warrior stuff like the above (and the last thread on the subject on here).
weddings are probably the worst for me, which is such a shame because they're great. I actually ate meat at one because I could face that more than the really complex veggie option, and I'm a lifelong vegetarian. BUT saying that I ate some risotto at one recently and it was really nice (avoided the asparagus, mind). So.
and how limiting it can be, which is a bit frustrating.
Daryl Palumbo has spoken about it a few times with more insight from the musician angle.
I am pretty restricted and there's plenty of things I have to avoid, and lots more still that I should avoid but sometimes cave - That's different to being a fussy eater though really, not like I have a choice.
Nah, you have no way of knowing how others experience food, different people have different tolerances. When I was a kid eating at friends was a nightmare, I knew trying to eat something I didn't like would make me throw up but not eating was rude, used to try and arrange it to make it look like I'd tried. I still have the same reaction now, I simply cannot stomach certain foods.
It's the anti fussy eaters who are the people who in this situation.
I've been known to rip on the odd fussy eater but this is some real old shit.
i don't like olives, horrible things
alergic to raw apples - everything else is fair game really
some of them are small, strong, bitter and salty. But some of the big proper ones you get from a deli are like biting into a delicious savoury juicy plum.
this is what people say every time olives are around
and then i have one
and i still don't liek it
they are gross
I don't mind, it is because of people like you that I get extra olives.
carrots. cucumber. raw tomato
i'll put everything else in me
