Do you have weird food rules?

Like Tree6Likes

No. You're weird.
(And missing out on soups that rely on summer produce! And oats with fresh spring/summer fruit . . . Mmm, oats with roasted rhubarb!)

No food rules here. I eat what I like,don't eat it if I don't like it. If I like all if it, I may mix it around together.

But I have to watch my calories because eating is social to me.

No, I don't. This thread is about weird food rules. Not nearly the same as my being a stickler for proper cooking technique, non-gimmicky food trends, and dislike of foods loaded with sugar/fat. For example, I don't really like bacon in desserts, but I get why it's done and don't have a specific "no bacon must touch any dessert item ever" rule. This isn't about what you like or prefer, it's about things you must have a specific way, or things you always do for a reason that really only makes sense to you, or for no real reason at all (hence the "weird").

No fish and cheese is a standard food "rule". Nothing weird about it.
I won't eat endangered or unethical type foods such as shark fin soup or foods that could potentially kill me like live octopus or blowfish.

Oh, 'weird' is too relative.

I'm sure people will pretty much just name their food rules. Someones bound to find it weird.

I think some things are standard, particularly when most people posting are from the same part of the world.
And even when someone may find something weird to them, it's not the same when there's a logical reason provided for it versus no reason or a reason that doesn't really have any legs.

I don't like sweet meals as in sweetie & sour pork.

I also love to share my plate with others. It makes a much more enjoyable experience.

On a side note I find it amazing that LisaLisa has been a member since 1999 and has 32 posts!

*No hot drinks or soups in the summer, no cold soups ever.

*When summer arrives and it starts to get hot, I will not be able to eat meat for 6 weeks. Only fruits and veggies. I didn't make that rule, but it must be followed.

*I will not eat raw tomatoes and onions, but love them cooked and I love raw broccoli but can not eat it cooked.

*Jello, sweet cornbread, and sweet slaw better not look at my plate! Yuck.

*I can only eat some cereals if they are soggy, and others if they are not. I also only eat milk in foods. I never drink it.

*I will only share my plate with someone I know well, or vice versa.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

I'm picky about my scrambled eggs. They have to be bright yellow and without any weird bits of meat or Teflon or brown parts from overcooking. And only salt and pepper for seasoning. Once I put some seasoning salt (or was it Adobo?) in my eggs and the smell made me puke.

Well, foie gras being unethical is debatable, so that one is controversial, but I wouldn't say it's weird not to eat it precisely because it's such a controversial one. Endangered fish or fish that can kill you, I find most people fall on the "not eating" that side.

I eat seasonally and I'm pretty strict about that (when it comes to how I purchase food). That might be out of the norm for a lot of people, but I don't consider that "weird" because it's about supporting small farms, sustainability, getting the best quality, and adjusting to changing seasons, and it's also a food movement that many others support. So, it's not some arbitrary thing like "I only eat this food for breakfast".
I guess I saw this more as food quirks?

This thread has made me remember the observation of a rule people have for no reason. So many times now I've heard:
"You know, I usually don't like fruit and meat together, but this is really delicious."
Heard from so many different people! Seriously, it's a popular one, and yet without fail it's uttered as the person is eating up a dish featuring the combo. I recently heard it again when we were tasting our new duck plate which features an apricot-orange purée.

I don't have the knowledge to be as picky as Saria, but I basically just detest poorly made food. I'm not a fan of grease, and often find even expensive restaurants rely on fat instead of quality ingredients and preparation. It just tastes repulsive to me.

I'm not afraid of fat or sugar where they belong, but people overdo it to make up for lack of seasoning or skill. I claim to hate fried foods, but in reality I hate poorly fried foods. Fresh, crispy, not oozing grease? Yum!

I don't care if it's simple diner food or fancy and super expensive - I care if it's well done.

As for my quirks - I also don't like my food touching. If foods are mixed together as part of a dish, that's fine. They are intended to touch! But if they are two separate items, they are intended to be tasted separately, not together. I want to taste the flavor of each alone.

In some cases foods taste better mixed than alone, of course, but I still want to taste them separately if they are served as separate items.

Probably my weirdest is how i make sandwiches. The cheese cannot go on the bottom. If its ham & cheese, the ham goes on, then the cheese, and i cant eat it upside down. It feels weird. Same with pb&j... The jelly goes on top and i cant eat it flipped over.

I can eat a wrong burger, but I prefer it the right way.

I'm have very conflicting rules about mayo.

1. Mayo is fine in tuna, chicken, or potato salad.

2. Mayo is THE DEVIL AND MUST NEVER, EVER be allowed to touch ANY other type of food product I eat.

Believe me, I know this makes no logical sense. It's just the way I feel.

I am also schizo about eggs. I enjoy them scrambled and omelet style, but I'll scream bloody murder if you put a hard-boiled egg in front of me.

Ok, not really, but I may start to gag.

It's not a rule, but a weird food thing. I eat in even numbers.

So when eating a handful of M&Ms, I go by color, and if there are an odd number of a color I'm on, I go with another color which is also odd next. I don't care if I actually eat an odd number of candies/chips/whatever. What I care is that I eat in even numbers so I know when I'm done if there were an even or odd number. I don't keep track over time or anything, so it's kind of bizarre.
