Are you a picky eater? Share some of your favorite food quirks with us (the more exotic, the better!). Omnivores: what’s the one thing you won’t eat?
What won’t I eat? Since I was a little toddler, I won’t eat sweet potatoes, cantalope, parsnips, cooked carrots, any vegetable that is sweet, except I do like tomatoes that have a sweet edge. Call me crazy, but when I was 4 years old, I had an uncle-in-law who force fed me sweet potatoes and that was it for a lifetime. I do occasionally try to eat them, such as, I had them in a savory rosemary flavored soup which was really quite good (and not sweet tasting). I have tried to taste sweet potatoes with the marshmallow topping cooked on top, but frankly, all I liked was the marshmallow topping!
Cantalopes are the same way, being as they are melons, they sure don’t taste like watermelons! I’ve never been able to swallow them!
I do like raw carrots, but not cooked carrots – go figure! It’s that cooked sweet taste. I will in general, eat a raw sweet vegetable, but forget about getting me to eat it cooked!
Oh, and don’t even get me started on a pile of cooked spinach, bleah.
