@lol at a lot of these- I like all foods heh, I’m just a vegetarian because meat hurts my stomach. But I’ve eaten it all, and will try anything! I even make my own frequently- I make sauerkraut (and that one can get a bit stinky!), fermented pickles, fermented garlic, pickled beets/okra/beans/green tomatos, yum! Tuna, sardines, anchovies, raw oysters, yum yum! And I still miss bone marrow heh. I’ve even made the “natural” carbonated drinks, IE, lemonade that’s fizzy because it’s made out of the whey leftover from my cheese making. It’s actually pretty good! But I also like kombucha, and I love kefir, so I’m just a weirdo I guess.
That being said…
If it’s natural, I’ll eat it, no matter what the veggie and if someone said ok no veggie food for you, you have to eat ______ weird part of *insert random* animal, I’d be a-ok with it. But I will NOT eat and can’t STAND processed food. Give me a plate of kale, a gallon of pickles, a single beet, a slice of tongue, but NONE of the following:
Funnel cakes, elephant ears, any fair food like that, hostess cakes, grocery store cake, frosting out of a can, velveeta mac&cheese, nope not gonna touch it, makes me GAG- I can’t even smell it, or it will make me feel ill. Same goes for american cheese, preserved meats, etc. My Fiance is still astonished that I’ve enjoyed ostrich and every veggie under the sun, but have never eaten a corn dog, a “sloppy joe”, a twinkie, or any of that other stuff. I hadn’t even had a grilled cheese until three years ago 😛
Only natural thing I won’t touch is Cilantro, I hate the stuff- I can eat salsa and guac that has a little bit in there, but if there are big undiced leaves floating around, forget it, won’t eat it!
