I was suprised at how many people said that they wouldn’t eat either salmon or duck on another thread, and it got me to wondering how many of you are picky eaters? If you are a picky eater what will or won’t you eat? is your SO also a picky eater? If you aren’t a picky eater is your SO?
I used to be a picky eater, but now I’ll eat just about anything!
this is the thread if you were wondering:
Duck & Salmon for Entree? « Weddingbee Boards

I don’t eat seafood of any kind. I try it, I’ve just never liked any of it.
I am also not adventurous – I won’t beat brains, or heart, or that kind of stuff. I have tried it occassionaly, but it skeeves me out.
DH apparently was a VERY picky eater as a kid – he wouldn’t even eat cheese! He eats (almost) everything now – he hates cinnamon (???), cucumber, watermelon

@Moonbear17: I’m kinda picky – but I don’t like duck and I’m not fond of salmon. FH is really picky and he would starve if he went to that wedding. vegetarian meal – good luck. If it’s not chicken or cow or bacon – he doesn’t eat it.

@Moonbear17: I will eat salmon, but not duck because of how greasy it is. However, I commented the way I did because I don’t feel either of those are “traditional” choices that will appeal to the majority of guests. I am slightly picky but I will try new things when I feel like it. If it something I know I won’t like, I don’t waste my time gagging over it (i.e. liver).
My husband will eat just about anything.

@MsGinkgo: I’m hardly picky at all now, but FI will hardly eat anything! the funny thing is he will say that he doesn’t like something that I know I’ve cooked for him and he’s liked! I think a lot of it is mental!

I’ll eat almost anything. And I’ve eaten some fairly strange things. But I’m not a big meat eater, and we almost never eat it at home. Only when I travel!

@Moonbear17: FH tries to pull that one all the time and it’s ‘well you liked it last time…’

@Moonbear17: The only things I cannot even stomach are mushrooms and coconut flakes! But I LOVE coconut shrimp?!

I am so not picky. I’ll try just about anything (As long as it’s not moving or have a really bad odor). I eat a lot of things that many have never tried… Duck, squid, Foie gras…

I’ll try just about anything.
The only things I don’t like are the bland, boring food!
So many people dislike seafood but it’s my favorite thing. I love almost all seafood! Definitely better than chicken IMO! Though I cook mostly vegetarian at home.
I finally had bone marrow a few months ago. Most people won’t touch it.
I can’t figure out how people hate sushi either…one of the best things ever!
Other “abnormal” animals (by US customs) don’t weird me out either.
I think insects would weird me out though. I might try it, but I wouldn’t be looking forward to it!

I’ll eat just about anything, generally. I’ll try odd things at least twice to make sure I don’t like them (just in case the first time it was prepared badly or something). My husband really will eat anything as long as it’s healthy for him.

I’m not a picky eater, but salmon is one thing I just don’t care for. I do like duck, just not the calories it has, lol.

The list of things I would eat are shorter then the list of things I won’t eat.
I don’t touch most white fish, I don’t eat porc, beef, or any meat other than chicken & duck & turkey. I will eat oysters, salmon, and tuna, but it must be raw.
I hate brussel sprouts, tomatoes, sqaush, cucumber, zucchini, beans, fruit of any kind (it’s a fear really).
But I’m getting better 😉 I ate my first sweet potatoe 2 weeks ago o:.
growing up I was always a weird eater, and when I liked something, I would eat it non stop till it literally made me sick (therapist said it was a comfort thing after my parent’s split).
Growing up, I never thought it was weird how many foods i hated.

I voted I am very picky, because that’s what everyone tells me. I personally don’t think I’m that picky.
I don’t eat any seafood or fish, simply because I don’t like the texture and taste, and I don’t eat any meat with skin or bones in/on it [They need to be deboned and deskinned for me to eat it].
That’s pretty much it…. i prefer to eat chicken or red meat, but I’ll eat redmeat once in awhile. I love all fruits & veggies.

@MsGinkgo: I know, it’s totally ridiculous! I think a lot of it for him is that his dad is a picky eater and his mom totally caters to it, so he doesn’t even think about trying new things.
