Picky eaters raise your hand...

I don't eat red meat or organ meats.
Miracle Whip is NASTY. Ugh.

Hmm...I am trying to think if there is anything else specifcally. I have some really strange food habits, anyways. I am terrified (sometimes) of getting rotten food or getting food poisoning. For a long time, this meant that I didn't eat many fruits or veggies - totally an anxiety thing.

When I eat chicken/fish, it almost always has to be over cooked, also because of the poisoning issue.

Note, I have never had food poisoning, so it's not like a post traumatic stress thing, hee. It's totally an anxiety issue and the fear of getting sick after eating.
I used to be rediculous, but nowadays anythings fair game. I'm the one who'll drink the schwam (when you put everything on the table into a cup and make the most vomit-like drink possible). XP

Like LoloDSM, I used to be a vegetarian and am totally adverse to meat. It'd be so easy for me to go back to it if my mom would let me.

So nowadays I've basically decided to hate all poultry and pork, though I'll choke down beef because my mom has a very nasty glare. Saying you hate a certain thing often enough gets you out of eating it. Blech.

Pass: Qtip
I don't eat:
white bread
red meat
oranges (but I love orange flavored food)
anything with raisins in it (but I love raisins)
blueberries (but I love blueberry muffins)
banana flavored anything (but I love bananas)

I was a picky eater as a kid and lived on salad and bread'n'butter.

Now I'm not picky.

I'm a vegetarian so any meat is out. I don't eat fastfood because it's 100% non-nutritious and I usually get sick since going mostly organic. There's a lot of foods that I got used to eating because the health benefits outweighed any issues I had with taste or texture and I did get used to them and actually learned to like them.
-Shrimp. gives me extremely bad gas and other intestinal problems and tastes weird.
-The only seafood I like is whiting or whitefish in general, salmon, and as they call them where I'm from "pond fish".
-I don't like pork.
-I don't like chicken, but I will eat it if there is nothing else.
-I don't like turkey, but I will eat it if there is nothing else.
-I don't like meat in pasta dishes.
-I don't like flan.
-I don't like mayo, but I will eat Veganaise.
-Beets are nasty.

I use to be the biggest picky eater in the world when I was a girl. I wouldn't eat any condiments on almost anything. I ate very few vegetables. I absolutely hated salads, and was just disgusted by them as a girl. I can remember crying as a young girl when my mother made me eat a salad. Now I'm the exact opposite. I absolutely love salads, and I eat them all the time. I even love sushi. My parents probably would have fainted if the saw me eat sushi as a young girl, or if they saw me eat a salad and actually really love eating one. It's strange how our taste buds change as we grow into adulthood.

I am extremely picky!!!!

I'd be here for days if I were to try and write down what I won't eat!!, hmm maybe when I have more time I'll really delve into things...
Turtles: omg please don't put that in your moo moo

Nej: too late... moo moo has been infiltrated.
Me! My number 1 picky food habit is I don't like tomatoes at all! No pizza sauce, pasta sauce, or ketchup. I dont like stuff on sandwiches and burgers I like them plain, with just bread, cheese, and meat. Sounds boring but I love it and I dont like wet bread. I could go on and on about my unique eating habits lol.
Super Thick corkscrews and waves. LOVE Elucence MBC, Giovanni 50/50 condish, Qhemet Products, V05 Calming Chamomile Tea Therapy condish, Jessicurl WDT. These are my official HG's that I love oh so much

You made me realize there is more stuff I don't like!

Oh, and I hate goulash. And I'm very picky about the kinds of Chinese food I'll eat.

Miracle Whip is the debbil.

Why would you want to ruin a perfectly good hard boiled egg?
I was picky as a kid, but not so much now.

I won't eat:
organ meat
I'm a bit picky about my cold-cuts but do eat most.
Miracle Whip
mustard (but if it's dried mustard in a recipe it's usually ok)
I am also picky to the point where I don't eat anything for hours.

I dont eat anything that
  • looks funny
  • smell funny
  • onions unless cut into tiny bits
  • zuchini
  • eggplant
  • candy ( yes, chocolate included)
  • soda
  • most red meat (beef, pork)
  • bacon (except turkey bacon)
  • beets ugh!!!!!
  • melon
  • cantelopes
  • pineapple (allergic)
  • water (this is a must so I am working on it)
  • non-organic foods
  • anything with High fructose corn syrup (and thats a lot of stuff)
  • green tea
  • diet anything
  • any lettuce (except iceberg, working on that too)
  • tomatoes (unless used to cook)
  • white bread
  • cookies, potato chips
  • don't like ice cream
  • most soups
  • carrots (unlike its juiced with milk and rum)
  • beer
  • most hard liquor
The list goes on....I actually would not eat if I did not have to....I never seem to have an appetite coupled with all the stuff I don't eat. That's sad

hard-boiled eggs
green bell peppers (I don't mind other colors)
hot dogs, bologna, and all other processed "meats"
fast food
so many onion and bell pepper haters! I'll take those off your hands. You can have my:

spicy anything
cakes (minor gluten intolerance, so I avoid all bread-like substances)
soy anything (medium soy intolerance, I'll be uncomfortably sick for the rest of the day)
red wine (headache in a bottle)
chunks of garlic (mince it, darnit!)
fast food (McD, BK, Taco Bell, those kinds of places)
most soups
most rice
nutri-grain bars and the like
ice cream with stuff in it (I like stuff on it - caramel, sprinkles, whipped cream - just not in it, like chocolate chunks or pieces of fruit.)

I love love LOVE tomatoes. You tomato-haters, I'll take all your tomatoes.
Location: Napa, CA
I am the opposite. There are just a few things I don't like
caraway seeds
green bell peppers (I will tolerate red ones and am fine with chilies)
licorice-flavored stuff
yellow mustard but I am fine with other varieties

I will eat almost anything else and probably like it. Organ meats - check. Scary creatures from the ocean deep - check.

I pray none of you ever has to live in a communist state.

Geeky is my hero. She's the true badass. The badass who doesn't even need to be a badass. There aren't enough O's in cool to describe her.
PhDCow, I cannot believe, as a Professional Picky Eater, that you DO like broccoli!!!! That stuff is the debbil's toxic waste!!

Another picky eater here (though not in some of y'all's league). I'll just list some pet peeves:

Cilantro -- tastes like soap gone bad and it's so trendy now to sneak it into every dish possible. Ugh!!!

Miracle Whip The tangy zip of used motor oil. No thanks.

Low-fat/no-fat "mayonnaise" Yeah. Used motor oil WITHOUT the tangy zip of Miracle Whip.

Pickles in all forms Another sneak attack food. People HIDE them in your cheeseburgers even after you say "no pickles." Then you get that horrible surprise sour crunch and have to spit your food out.

The so-called Cruciferous vegetables If I wanted to eat tree trunks, I'd have become a termite. Plus they stink when you cook them. "Stink" should be your first clue that this is not a food fit for humans.

File powder Actually I got nothing against it except it doesn't like me. If I eat it in something, my face turns bright red and the projectile vomiting begins!
Spoils some of my reckless Cajun fun. No gumbo for me . . .

Sugar-free anything You want me to believe anything with that nasty taste and delightful chemical aftertaste is better for me that good old glucose/fructose/ any-ose? I'd rather skip dessert altogether and I'm sure that's better for me anyway.

The list of simple dislikes would be long . . . green bell peppers, kale, cooked spinach, turnips, rutabagas . . . I'm looking at you.

I don't think I'm too picky. I'll try most things. There are a few foods I don't like:

Ranch dressing
Mayo and Miracle Whip
Organ meats
Cole slaw
I hate onions and green peppers on pizza, though I like them in other foods
I had morning sickness last Thanksgiving, and I'm still iffy on Thanksgiving Day foods now

Fig jam, I read that file is no longer on the market because it's carcinogenic!! So it's definitely to be avoided.

Actually, it's the roots and bark of the sassafras that have been found to be carcinogenic. File is made from the leaves, which are safe to eat.

We have a jar of file from our own sassafras trees in our yard.
What part of the sassafras tree do they make the tea from? I am assuming the leaves, but for some reason I thought the roots were involved. . .

ETA: Google search says the tea is made from the young root. An article from British Columbia Cancer Agency advises no use of sassafras due to properties of safrole, an essential oil in sassafras.
So, hmmm?
