    Tilapia is nasty!

    I know fishermen who refuse to eat tilapia. They find it in the nastiest, dirtiest water.

    Donuts make me gag. Even just the smell of them when walking past a bakery makes my stomach turn.

    I quite like the smell, but doughnuts are never a thing I crave - haven't had the desire to eat one since being a kid...and even then, I never ate them then either lol!

    If you're an adult, you should grow up and eat foods you don't love because of their nutritional value. Sure, have some treats but if you always eat for enjoyment, you're losing enjoyment in other areas of life.

    What if one actually enjoys plenty of highly nutritious foods, so one does not have to "eat foods you don't love" in order to have a good, nutrient-dense diet? I always find it weird when people suggest that eating a healthy diet requires not enjoying everything they eat. Personally, I love most veg, when properly cooked, fruit, and plenty of protein-rich foods, among other things, and I assume that's true for most of us adults.

    This.

    I never eat anything I don't truly enjoy (at least when I'm preparing my own food and I'm not a guest). If there is a nutrient-rich food I don't enjoy, I can always find another food I like that is a good source of that nutrient. I don't see it as an either/or.

    Candy apples are gross and hard to eat. I have a small mouth and can’t eat apples unless they are cut up anyways lol.

    cut up apples with caramel dip is the only way to eat caramel and apples haha

    It's like you've plunged a knife into my soul with those words. I can eat the crap out of some peppers. Love them!

    Green ones are only good for cooking the heck out of them with onions and garlic and sausage or steak.

    I quite enjoy bell peppers (of all varieties), but I admit my eyes nearly bugged out of my head when my cousin's husband asked me one day, "Do you know how to eat a bell pepper?" and then took a whole green bell pepper (stem in tact and all) and bit into it like one typically would bite into an apple. :D

    Adding to my previous comment, my cousin's husband's method of eating bell peppers looked somewhat like this:

    I feel like it is a hit or miss with bell peppers. Around here, if I get fresh ones from the farmers market, they are really delicious and sweet. If I buy from the store they are sometimes bitter and not very good. (most of the time)

    I could do that and be happy.

    Stevia isn’t a natural sweetener.

    It is a natural sweetener, that is UNNATURALLY processed. But natural nonetheless.

    I like mini sweet peppers... especially grilled. And I guess I like bell peppers in fajitas and on nachos, etc. But i do not like RAW bell peppers. Like, as a sanck with hummus, etc.

    I am sorry to bother -- I was wondering if anyone could enlighten me on the topic of artificial/processed vs. unprocessed sweeteners. I use the (unfortunately) processed white stevia powders on occasion, but I've been wanting to find an unprocessed noncaloric sweetener - I'm just uncertain 1) if such a thing exists and, if it does, 2) what that would be and where I could find it.

    This thread prompted me to resume my search, and I found this product on Amazon:

    bbtpz4xuumki.png

    Do you know if this is a natural unprocessed form of stevia?

    Additionally, if anyone knows of any unprocessed noncaloric sweeteners, could you please point me in the right direction?

    Thank you in advance. Keep thriving. :)
