Picky Eatin’

Although it’s hard to tell by looking at me, I am an extremely picky eater.

One thing that you’ll learn about me, I love list posts. In fact, I love them so much that today I decided to name all of the different foods that I won’t touch with a 20 foot pole, due to either gastric distress, allergies or personal taste.

I know, I’m excited too.

My Picky Food List

Meatloaf made by anyone besides my mother. The freaking pope could make a meatloaf and I’d still have to pass.

Fake crab meat, because life is too damn short for pretend seafood.

Bratwurst. Even the name sounds unappetizing.

Clams. My dad gave me one to try when I was a kid and he even warned me that I wouldn’t like it. He was correct, it was disgusting.

Curry. Have you ever tried to run like the wind blows to the bathroom in a pair of high heels?


They should have taught us how to do this in Home Economics class.

Lamb, because they are too fucking adorable to consume.

Beans, raw onions and broccoli. (Gastric distress, please steer clear of me for at least 12 hours.)

Almost any kind of leftover, unless it’s pizza or lasagna. Cold lasagna is delicious, you should give it try. Go ahead, live on the edge.

Pecans, walnuts, pistachios or any sort of tree nut, because my mouth will start to feel like I tried to eat flames.


Here, let me cook that hotdog for you.

Coconuts. I love the smell, but hate the taste and consistency of it.

Ketchup and yellow mustard, because I’m weird. Other mustards are fine, though.

Hot sauce. Well, anything that’s hot or really spicy. I don’t get why people enjoy scorching their insides, but hey, who am I to judge?

Lorna Doone cookies. Seriously, what’s the point? This isn’t a cookie, Nabisco. You better get your shit together and dip it in chocolate, then we might have something.


Selling lies since 1912.

Is there any food that you can’t stand? (I know someone else out there must also hate ketchup.)

  1. OK I gotta draw a line in the sand with you on the lorna doone cookies. Granted they aren’t Walker’s Shortbread cookies but I’ll still chow down on them. Growing up in the culinary capitol of this country, there is very few things I will not eat…traditional Korean food, brussel sprouts, and mustard greens are pretty much my list.

  2. Gee, so what do you actually eat? I don’t think there’s food I don’t eat, being pretty open to any kind of cuisine.As for the bratwurst, esp. the chili one, you’re awfully mistaken. I live in Germany, I should know. I don’t know about the name, but I do know it tastes great.

  3. I eat almost literally everything that can be called food. Bratwurst is awesome. How do you guys hate brussels sprouts?

    Like most lessons in school, you hate them PROBABLY because you didn’t have a good teacher. When you hate brussels sprouts, it makes me thing you didn’t get it from a very good cook.

    1. Wait! How did I miss these other things?! Lamb! You don’t eat lamb?! They’re like the definition of deliciousity. NO CURRY?! That’s blasphemy! Do you mean no Indian curry? No Thai curry? No North African curries? The difference between green coconut curry and masamun curry and chicken tikka masala and dal makhni… man, you are TOTALLY missing out in ways you will never know.

      1. You are totally right about lambs. I think I’m kind of a monster. I actually try to eat vegan (which means I eat mostly vegetarian) most of the time, so most of the cute things I kill are plants and therefore soulless.

        Sadly, a lot of curry places can do that to you (too much oil or ghee… combined with not being used to TONS of spice in a dish). It’s worth the punishment for me, but I’m a glutton for a lot of things.

  4. I won’t eat any meatloaf not made by me, and I won’t eat any lasagna not made by my mom Or me. I also won’t touch meatballs unless me or my mom Made them. I guess I’m insanely picky with Italian food – i come from a line of amazing Italian cooks and im spoiled lol

  5. My last holdout was sushi, but the missus made me try it so much I started to like it. Then we found a place that makes it so good that all sushi is good to me, now, from anywhere. Weird how that worked.

    So I’ll eat just about anything now except a tuna sandwich.

    I can eat leftover ANYTHING for 3 or 4 days. My wife loves that. 😂

      1. The only food that ever made me sick was a bad batch of nachos I ate at the Brews Brothers in Reno after a Leprechaun Crawl one year.

        I have since forgiven both nachos and Brews Brothers for their sins. 😉


  6. I’m with you on at least 50% of that stuff. I’ll happily consume any condiment or hot sauce, though. With or without food 🙂
    I’ll never go near rice pudding or semolina pudding, the stuff they forced on me in junior school. Even the thought makes me want to hurl.

    1. Semolina pudding sounds really gross. I much prefer chocolate pudding. 🙂
      You should have seen the US school lunches back in my day…the pizza was barely edible and we’re talking pizza here, which is almost always somewhat edible.
