nitpicky

the older i get the more and more i realize that i'm a really picky eater. i can't stand certain foods and if something is made with these then i won't even eat any of it at all. take peppers for instance. i hate peppers. all peppers, whether they be bell, chile, or jalapeƱo. i won't eat stuff with these things in them, unless it's store bought salsa. even i don't understand how i can eat it. i also hate certain beans like green, yellow, and lima. these are so gross. i don't even like to sit by people who are eating them, the smell is so terrible.

wow - I have heard that picky eaters produce picky kids. lol.

as I have gotten older, I have decided to TRY NEW FOODS!!! Thus I have learned that I LOVE spinach, artichokes, sour cream (who doesn't love sour cream?), black beans, fish (which I hated growing up) and much more. Also, I have tried, indian food, thai food, and persian, among other things. tho I am not a HUGE bell pepper fan, if it is cooked, and mixed in i am all good!

Really I lloooooove peppers, all kinds of peppers and I really like Lima beans.

There isn't really anything I can't stand or won't try....oh except for lemon bars. I gag at the thought of them.

but that's it.

they say you are what you eat... I am a 300 pound cream puff. hahahaha

I also did not like green beans, but Grandma Goldie made garden fresh green beans, cooked with butter and milk, and I ate it to be polite and found that I liked them. So once in a while try something new.

Like Mikey says, Try it, you'll like it.

I won't eat anything with cloves in it. Yuck. I'm also not a fan of ginger, but that's about it for me. It's too bad you don't like peppers. My favorite breakfast is an omelet jam-packed with peppers and other veggies. D-lish! You're really missing out.

Ugh! Bananas! Yuck. I also do not like broccoli, green beans or peas.

I Love onions, peppers, strawberries, spinach, carrots and pastas.

I too will try things as I get older. I did not like rice as a kid, but I will eat it now. I also did not like certain noodles, but I like them now. I used to like bananas but now I hate them.

Well you know where picky eaters go don't you ? LOL

I have a picky eater for a son! I don't know where he gets it because Aaron has taste buds like Charlie and I really don't dislike anything except most seafood.

I am the most unpicky eater I know. I will try ANYTHING at least once. But I was not always that way. Years ago I realized I liked foods I did not like as a kid, and some foods like brocoli I LOVED now. So I started trying everything, and I am happy to have such a wide variety of foods to enjoy. Eating the same thing all the time is boring. BUT... Here is my complete list of foods I will never eat:
Brains of any kind, even though I have only tried calf brains. They are disgusting in taste and texture, and DANGEROUS to eat...
Wasabi or Horseradish. Sorry, just can NOT take the taste, and not becuause it is spicy...
I still do not prefer green peppers or black-eyed peas, and a few other things, but I try them every time they are put in front of me. Who knows? One day they may be my new favorite food...
