Do you have weird food rules?

SpringcurlSpringcurl Posts: 8,002Registered Users
I'm starting to realize I do.

Here are some of mine:

No soups in the summer
Oatmeal: Only in winter
Broccoli: Fine on its own, but not mixed in with any food.
Chocolate: Only in bars, not in cookies, cakes, or as frosting.
Eggs: Great for lunch and dinner but not breakfast.

I'm really weird!! Do you have any weird food rules?

    Not sure if this is that wierd or not but I don't like to share plates. As in going to a restaurant, ordering a bunch of food and everyone share.

    I eat one thing at a time, I don't mix. For example, I start eating my fries after I am completely done with my burger. I don't mix curries either even if they are all on one plate. I don't fully enjoy the flavor of a food if I take a few bites and move on to something else and then come back to it.

    No. You're weird. :p
    (And missing out on soups that rely on summer produce! And oats with fresh spring/summer fruit . . . Mmm, oats with roasted rhubarb!)

    Oats with rhubarb? I've never heard of such a thing! I only know rhubarb with strawberries or eaten plain with a bit of salt like we used to do when I was a kid.

    I've always said I'm a season eater. I'm probably actually just weird. But the opposite of no soups in the summer is no salad in the winter. I love salad in the summer.

    I don't care for fruit and chocolate together (except raisins, I do like chocolate chips and raisins together in trail mix) - I hate chocolate covered strawberries, or when people ruin perfectly good chocolate cake with raspberry sauce/filling of some sort.
    I haven't got the slightest idea how to change people, but I still keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out.

    It's also great with Greek yogurt and a little granola.
    I love winter salads. You get hardier greens and citrus in the winter. Avocado and grapefruit salad, or shaved fennel, apple, and pomegranate, or frisée, winter squash, hazelnuts, or endive with pear and Meyer lemon.

    I think this is a pretty popular one, except for the chocolate-covered strawberries part, because people have an inexplicable love for mediocre, flavorless strawberries covered in chocolate. :p So, outside of that I wouldn't say it's weird by most people's standards.
    I like chocolate with raspberry and orange (oh, and apricot), though it depends how it's done. I'd much sooner just leave the chocolate out altogether, though. ;)

    This thread has made me remember the observation of a rule people have for no reason. So many times now I've heard:
    "You know, I usually don't like fruit and meat together, but this is really delicious."
    Heard from so many different people! Seriously, it's a popular one, and yet without fail it's uttered as the person is eating up a dish featuring the combo. I recently heard it again when we were tasting our new duck plate which features an apricot-orange purée.

    Mine are:

    No ice cream in the winter.
    No soups in the summer.
    I will only eat eggs that are scrambled or hard boiled. If they are prepared any other way, I gag.
    I don't use a lot of gravies, sauces or condiments in anything. I don't like drowning my food in them because then, you end up tasting just the gravy or the sauce and not the actual food itself.
    I don't do cheeseburgers or any sandwich with cheese in it. (Actually, I don't eat a lot of cheese in general) It's partly due to lactose intolerance, but it's also partly because I'm not a big fan of cheese.
    I don't like nuts, by themselves or mixed with something. I.E. I'll eat brownies, but if they have nuts in them, I won't eat them.

    Also, as a kid, I used to eat one thing at a time but people would remark on how weird that was and I got self conscious about it, so by the time I was in high school, I started eating food mixed up the way a lot of other people eat it.

    I also eat one thing at a time, and yes i get told its weird.
    I dont like tomatoes, but i love ketchup.
    I dont like oranges, but i love orange juice.
    I despise jello. Seriously. Its a texture issue.

    Probably my weirdest is how i make sandwiches. The cheese cannot go on the bottom. If its ham & cheese, the ham goes on, then the cheese, and i cant eat it upside down. It feels weird. Same with pb&j... The jelly goes on top and i cant eat it flipped over.

    If i have pepperoni pizza, I have to pick the pepperoni off first and eat it by itself; the only exception is when the pepperoni won't come off easily and it would take off too much of the cheese with it. It comes from being a kid and when I used to eat pepperoni pizza, if I tried to take a bite where I would only bite half of a pepperoni, it would pull off the rest of the pepperoni and some cheese with it, and end up being super messy.

    Also, I love grapes but hate grape juice or any artificial grape flavoring.

    And this isn't true anymore, but my mom said when I was young, if I ate a banana it had to be whole. If it was broken, I'd start crying and wouldn't eat it.

    I can't do chocolate with any kind of nutbutters or coffee (chocolate with fruit is fine, though).

    Unless they're scrambled eggs have to have runny yolks. Bring it on, Salmonella!

    Yogurt has to be smooth, so putting fruit in my yogurt is a no-no.

    Besides some food dislikes, that's about it.

    I'm like mangos but not mango juice .
    I don't do raw veggies , they have to be cooked for at least 3 minutes

    If its cold I'm not drinking or eating

    Nothing with chocolate for me , it 'ruins' the taste
    I love cocoa the fruit with the seeds in bt not the cocoa derived used for chocolates

    • I don't like nuts in my ice cream...I like nuts fine on their own or in other stuff though.
    • I try not to eat peppers...not because I don't like them, but because they make me burp.
    Those are the only 2 I can think of. I'm really flexible about food.
  • SCGSCG Posts: 5,416Registered Users
    I'm pretty relaxed about "food rules" these days. Mostly, I just prefer for my food not to touch too much... But generally more in the sense of "I'd rather not have that watermelon juice make my hamburger bun all soggy" than "Oh my goodness! My mashed potatoes and meatloaf absolutely cannot touch!"

    I don't really have any rules. There are things I don't like - beef, for example. I've tried, but it's just a taste that I don't like, whether it's a steak or a hamburger or anything in between. I figure there are enough other options out there that I do like that it isn't an issue. *shrug*
  • RobinP92202RobinP92202 Posts: 213Registered Users
    I like to eat around my plate, like one bite from each item at a time. I usually end up with one bite of each thing left at the end. If someone takes something off my plate, I joke that it ruins my "rotation". If I have too much of one thing I have to get more of the other or ration each bite of what I have less of. I don't think about this when I am eating but have noticed my habit because I get teased for it ;)

    I love chocolate with fruit! I love chunks in ice cream and yogurt...berries, nuts, etc. I don't like soft or runny eggs, I can eat a bite or two of eggs but not my own full portion. I don't eat beef or pork and like my chicken and fish on the overcooked/dry side. I love sweet and salty together, like salads with fruit, nuts, and feta or goat cheese. Can't stand anything greasy like a ton of melted cheese over food. I don't like anything creamy or cheesy with seafood, I really don't like seafood mixed with anything else. Hate mushy veggies, I like them al dente.

    I love food, l'm not fussy, and will try (and usually like) most anything. I'll eat things I don't really like. I'll eat things that are overcooked or undercooked. I can thoroughly enjoy the simplest or fanciest things.

    I don't really have any rules but there are a few things I don't particularly like.
    I don't like my food touching so when I'm home I put my food in different dishes.
    I don't like eating with metal silverware so when I'm home I use plastic.
    I love raw celery but don't like it cooked.
    I love raw green peppers but don't like them cooked.
    I'm not a cheesaholic and don't want cheese on everything.
    --I'm located in Western PA.
    --I found NC in late 2004, CG since February 2005, started going grey in late 2005.

    --My long time favorite products are Suave & VO5 conditioners, LA Looks Sport Gel, oils, honey, vinegar.

    That was me when I was a kid! My parents got me a set of "picnic" (heavy duty re-useable) silverware that I used consistently at home. To this day, I HATE the feeling/sound of metal on teeth, but I've learned to eat with metal and avoid touching it with my teeth.
  • jeepcurlygurljeepcurlygurl Posts: 19,249Registered Users Curl Connoisseur
    ^^ Glad to see I'm not the only one. My dislike of metal silverware probably stems from having a mouth full of metal fillings. It's just makes my teeth and head hurt if silverware touches them. And I nearly have a breakdown if I'm eating with someone who scrapes their teeth with their fork all the time. Ouch! I use metal in public of course. But I really love using plastic.

    The bolded is me except I don't love food. I eat because I'm hungry or sometimes when I'm bored.

    The only food rule is that I hate pickles and pickle flavored junk like chips. I can eat a pickle on a burger or sandwich. And I like dill like dill Havarti. But I can't just eat a pickle. Ewww.

    I don't eat anything cold, like salad. Only ice cream. Cold pizza, chicken, etc? I gag. Ugh. My good must be burning hot.

    My food must not touch.

    I have a particular way I eat sandwiches, Fudge Rounds, Kit Kats, Snickers, etc.

    I have not drank milk since I came off the bottle. It's a texture thing.

    I despise fruit juices.

    I'm sure there are more but I can't think of any others right now.

    If I am eating M & M's, I separate them out by color, then I then eat them by which one has most, but in rainbow order (except green, I save each green one for last). Then, when they all have the same number, I eat again in rainbow order except green. Green is always last. Skittles are also done this way, but I eat the green after the yellow, not at the end.

    I can't eat anything that has bones in it. Like a chicken drumstick. I also find chicken wings really gross, simply because of the bones.

    Don't like my food touching on a plate.

    I am sure I have more, but those are the big ones.

    You all are making me laugh out loud! Y'all are funny!!! Definitely weird. I'm enjoying this.

    I'm weird in a lot of ways but I guess not re: food. I have preferences, but the only thing people seem to think is weird about my eating habits is I'm not much into sweets. It's not a diet thing, I just prefer salty and savory. Chocolate is OK - can take it or leave it. I know - - weird! :laughing3:
