I'm a picky eater

I didn't used to think I was a picky eater, but after thinking on it awhile, I realize I am one.

I don't like

  • bell peppers, they give me BAD heartburn
  • raw onion - cooked, they can go in anything - but they must be well cooked
  • brussel sprouts - tried but cannot stomach them, hubby loves them
  • mangos - they taste like pine to me
  • sweet potato - argh just cannot stand them
  • turnip - I still have dreams of having to eat this as a child - my father always convinced me to mix them with my mashed potatoes to make them taste better - all it did was ruin my mashed potatoes!
  • most fish - I really don't like fish, there are a couple I can tolerate, but very infrequently
  • broccoli - I really want to like this, and can tolerate it in my frog soup, but not so much just plain steamed
  • eggplant - I find them too mushy. We got 3 huge ones from our 1 plant this summer - we grilled them sliced for K to eat.
  • plums - just never liked the texture of them
  • bleu cheese - ack! K loves this stuff. I cannot tolerate it.
  • squash - I don't hate spaghetti squash, but do hate most other types
  • rice piudding - blech! rice is supposed to be savory...end of story!
  • sushi - have tryed it (the fully cooked kind) but don't like the taste of the rice
  • cooked carrots - they were pretty much the only veggie I would eat as a child and I think I just got sick of them  - I can eat them raw though
  • mussels & oysters - in any preparation {shudder}
  • goat cheese - it taste like um dirt to me :p
 Wow that is a lot of stuff.

So what types of foods do you dislike?

he he he, we are somewhat alike Kim when it comes to food we don't really like. For me, sushi, squash, sweet potato and oysters. But I love, love, love fish.
