The 11 Most Horrible Foods In My Life
There are at least 11 foods you probably love that I will never ever eat.
I will be the first to admit, I am a picky eater. My mom used to say I was "finicky". That may be true, but it's not my fault. I don't like being this way and I didn't choose to be a picky eater. I'm not saying I was born this way, but, my mom once revealed that after I was born, they couldn't get me to eat anything until after going home from the hospital.
In My Defense
The other thing I will say, in my defense, is that I was not a spoiled child growing up. Whatever was on the dinner table is what I ate. There were no meal alternatives. There was also the expectation that I would eat everything on my plate - including the vegetables, which always was a sticking point. It's not surprising that vegetables dominate my list of the 11 most horrible foods in my life - and this is only Part 1.
Trying to Change
Over the years, there have been attempts to change my eating habits and transform likes into dislikes. There have been far more failures than successes, but I am extremely happy about the victories I have won through the years including gravy, salad dressing, coconut cream pie, pecan pie, sour cream, and raw vegetables. Unfortunately, most cooked vegetables remain on the forbidden food list.
Sometimes there is the food I won't eat because I don't like the taste. Some foods find their way onto the forbidden food list because of texture -and taste really has nothing to do with it. Then there are foods that are not enjoyed but are at the very least tolerable when absolutely necessary.
Many of the foods on my hate list are foods you absolutely love, and you'll wonder what in the world is wrong with me. But, here is a look at the 11 most horrible foods in my life - Part 1. Yes, there will be Part 2.
