Name three foods you absolutely will not eat.
1. Any kind of sea food except fish.
There are other things including coffee, but we drink that.
I have some food allergies so there are some foods I can't eat but the foods I choose not to eat are
organ meat except calves liver and that includes brain, tripe and head cheese LOL
lima beans or other legumes/lentils except kidney beans in chili and pureed chickpeas made into hummas
Scungilli (MIL always used to get me to eat it)
Any seafood but calamari and shrimp - can't gag down fish. I was raised on the Mississippi river and ate fish at least twice a week - NOT ANY MORE!
I won't eat sushi - gummy, sticky rice and fish is just not for me!
Nothing really spicy - hurts my stomach.
runny egg yolks
canned creamed corn
I will try almost anything once....already tried fried eggs with runny yolks and canned creamed corn.
1. Raw oysters
When about 6 yrs old, I developed a reaction to watermellon. It made me sick to my stomach. After many years, I became able to eat a small portion, and now in my old age, I can eat a little of it if I do so slowly. This aversion also spilled over to muskmellon, however, not as stongly. By the time I was 40, I could muskmellon if I did not gorge on it.
1. Any raw seafood, and no oysters, raw or cooked.
2. Organ meat.
3) Sushi, well, make that more specific, sashimi
These lists are sooooo interesting to me! It triggered some fun conversation with Robert this evening. I've had all of those foods at some time in my life....with the exception of skungilli. Had to look up that one! I'd eat it.
My whole world of preferred edibles doubled when I moved to a coastal area (Beaufort, SC) . Freshly harvested ocean fish and shell fish are now like manna to me.....as are the wide variety of southern veggies.
I've had chicken feet, gator, wild hog, possum, diamondback rattlesnake, and other foods eaten by local people.
So, here's my list....
Eyeballs....(SOME cultures consider these food)
insects or reptiles
that was supposed to say raw seafood or meat, I do eat some raw foods, lol.
raw meat or raw seafood
organ meat (any!)
organ meats (less and less of any type meat)
cheesecake (hate it!)
Okra-unless it's fried
No bugs, either. Ick!
I don't drink milk, eat sweet potatoes or beets.
Any and all meat of any kind
Cilantro, bleck just thinking about it.
1. Any kind of seafood. My Dad was military and stationed overseas when my Mom was pregnant with me. She used to get fresh fish everyday from a local fisherman in Monterey, where they lived and she ate fish just about everyday. When she was pregnant with my brother, they moved to base housing at Ft. Ord and she didn't eat much fish. I can't even stand the smell of fish... Yet my Mom and brother LOVE it. Go figure.
2. Mushrooms. It's a fungus - just the thought grosses me out.
3. Any kind of "weird meat" like organs, feet, eyes, brains, liver, heart, etc. I also won't eat any meat but chicken, turkey and lean beef. The occasional piece of bacon on something is ok, but not plain. To add to this, I also won't eat anything that still has a head attached and I have a hard time if the meat still looks like what it is - such as a rotisserie chicken or whole turkey.
I'm picky... LOL!
My top three most offensive foods are: raw onion, garlic in any form..cilantro/cumin/curry
1. No weird animals(organs, Rocky mtn., eyes, brains, chitlins)
2. gefilte fish, raw oysters or pickled pigs feet
I have to say ... after seeing more posts ... I'm surprised how many people don't like cilantro! Maybe because I'm getting ready to start preparing/cooking my chicken chile verde (with a TON of cilantro in it) for dinner tonight and can't imagine it without cilantro. Although... I absolutely detest certain "spices" or " flavor enhancers" as well - curry, dill and capers come to mind. How about everybody else? What spice or flavor do you not care for?
I'm a meat and potatoes gal....No veggies but corn, green beans, tomatoes, brocolli
That's not even true. I'll eat olives if they're cut up and in bread. I guess, growing up poor made me grateful for all foods. Except beets. Why would anyone want to eat dirt? I don't understand the appeal.
I detest sweet potatoes, eggplant, cottage cheese and squash of all kinds.
As for seasonings, the only one I can think of disliking is curry.
I have been around the world 5 times and in all 50 states, and wherever I went I tried the local cuisine,,,,including wild meats, organ meats, reptiles & snake and even one eyeball,,,but you may rest assured that there are three foods that will never cross my lips again,,,
1. Raw Tomatoes
2. Seafood of any kind except tuna salad.
3. Veal. I know what it is, and how it's treated before
killed. I will NOT eat a baby.
oh...and rabbit. No thank you.
1. Any/all mollusks (clams, oysters, etc)
ShedTheChrysalis, I also dislike cilantro. A LOT of folks, including me, have an allergy to it. For me, while I don't get real sick, cilantro just does NOT agree with me. Cilantro is one of those love it or hate it foods.
Nelles - I'm sorry that you're allergic! I'd never heard of anyone allergic before - it caught me off guard. I wouldn't eat anything that makes me sick either... :)
turnip green (or other cooked greens except spinach)
I don't have a problem with dried cilantro. It doesn't taste like fresh cilantro. I don't mind fresh cilantro as long as it's used lightly. I have been growing and using Vietnamese coriander. It's not as overpowering as regular cilantro. It also grows very fast and it's easy to grow. I can't seem to grow regular cilantro.
Except for all seafood & some meats (only eat chicken & beef), can't think of any vegetable, fruit, grain, spice, herb or dairy I don't like. I guess if I had to make a short list, however, ANYTHING in the squash family, including pumpkin, would be the last thing I would choose to eat. But if you serve it to me, fine, no problem
-liver (and other organ meats)
I've seen turkey lungs for sale in my local grocery, wouldn't even feed that to my pets. I'm still thinking about the other two.
Wow, some of the things some of you won't eat are absolutely delicious! Some are even favorites of mine!
I guess I won't say 'never'. But at this point, I have never tried the following foods and have no wish to do so.
Ok, I named four. But I really do like most food items, or at least am ok with them.
I won't eat liver,peas,cottage cheese.
I cannot eat any shellfish.
do not care for organ meats..
dislike cotton candy....it is a texture thing, to me it is
like eating insulation, or cob webs,,,, ugh..
and by the way...LOVE cilantro...
Milk or overly milky items.
Things in jello/gelatin that aren't fruit.
2. liver of any kind
